The cat is a mysterious and magical creature, one that resonates with courage, patience and independence. Cats have the ability to see in the dark and they enjoy their time spent roaming the night when most creatures are at rest. They navigate through the darkness with comfort and ease. The cat reminds us to have the courage to explore and move forward when challenged with new ideas. The cat is also comfortable with oneself and feels no need to perform or to please. A reminder to not accept or tolerate what doesn't feel right for your life at that moment.
