Cats are one of the most frequently depicted animals in dreams. They are adorable pets who will be with you in the best of times and in the worst of times, and they are renowned for their magical nature and healing abilities.
In dreams, cats symbolize independence, curiosity, unpredictability, self-reliance, and feminine energy. Some people believe that a cat in a dream is a bad omen. However, these claims come from folklore and superstitions because a cat in a dream can mean both negative and positive things.
As for the ancient dream dictionaries, they all consider a cat in a dream to be a symbol of freedom and independence. So if you have a negative dream about a cat (e.g., a dead cat, a cat chasing you, or a cat being eaten by a snake), it means that you have lost your freedom or are feeling tied down.
Dreams About Cats Clinging To You
Now, the dreams about cats clinging to you can be interpreted in two ways, positively and negatively.
As for the negative interpretation, dreams about cats clinging to you in dreams mean that you have lost your freedom. It can be the loss of physical freedom or freedom of speech. You may feel like you’re tied to a rope and can’t move forward in life or do what you love. You may also feel like you can’t express yourself freely and say whatever you want.
The loss of this freedom can happen for several reasons, for example, an illness that prevents you from doing something you used to do, or a job that prevents you from traveling, or a partner who is more like a jailer than your partner and limits your freedom.
In a positive sense, cats clinging to you in dreams means that you will be independent again, and your life will change for the better. It will probably happen without effort on your part or when you least expect it. Clinging cats in dreams could be, in this sense, the messengers of good news.
Since cats symbolize feminine, gentle energy, this dream may urge you to tap into your feminity. Your gender does not matter because both women and men have feminine and masculine energy.
This dream could indicate that your masculine and feminine energies are imbalanced. If you are a man, you try to hide your emotions and want to appear tough on the outside. If you’re a woman, maybe you’re doing a tough man’s job, and you don’t feel like a woman, or you feel like people or your partner don’t treat you like a woman.
When you connect with your feminine energy, you experience deep peace and well-being. You become empowered and confident. You attract amazing opportunities and relationships into your life. Your whole life changes for the better when you connect with your feminine energy. The cats clinging to you in dreams invite you to do so.
As you can see, this dream has two meanings, positive and negative. In order to find out which interpretation suits you better, try to recall other details from your dream that will help you come up with the most accurate interpretation.
For instance, if you felt like it was too much (too many cats clinging to you), I would lean more toward the negative interpretation. On the contrary, if you felt relaxed and enjoyed the presence of cats, it means that you will soon be independent and you will enjoy your freedom to the fullest, or you’ll tap into your magical feminine energy
The dreams about cats clinging to you symbolize a lack of freedom, restrictions, and feminine energy that you have to tap into.
