According to author Ted Andrews of Animal Speaks, cats wild or domestic have certain qualities
in common. They are associated with myth and lore, magic and mystery. Nine lives, curiosity,
independence, cleverness, unpredictability and healing. Those with this medicine should also
study its color, size and breed for a deeper understanding. Cats have more rods in the retinas of
their eyes which enable them to see effectively in the dark. The dark is often associated with
mankind's fears. Since the car is at home in the dark, it serves as a valuable ally into the world of
the supernatural and the unknown and can help those with this totem move through their fears efficiently.

The energy field of a cat rotates in a counterclockwise direction, the opposite of a human energy
field. Because of this, cats have the ability to absorb and neutralize energy that affects humans in
a negative way. This is part of the healing medicine that the cat holds. If something affects you in
a negative way place a cat on your lap or find a cat to pet. Your energy field will immediately
realign itself and inner balance will be restored. Because of their x-ray vision, acute hearing and
high intelligence they were used throughout history as guardians and protectors. In ancient Egypt
cats guarded the temple gates and were used to ward off evil.

If cat appears in your life the blending of magic and mystery is at hand. A trustworthy teacher,
the cat will guide you into the world of self-discovery and transformation.

Cats like the Siamese have their ancestral links with Asian wild cats. All the small ones, not big
cats. You still get wild cats in Africa and other parts of the world. Scotland has its own wildcat
that is unique in that it's the only cat where the male stays with his mate to feed and raise the
kittens. Oh.. their African roots show in the fact that most pet moggies love heat. The warmer the

“The African wild cat (Lybica group) ranges throughout Africa and the Middle East, with
exception of western Africa where there are rainforests. They inhabit the mountains, plains, and
woods. It is believed that the Lybica group of wild cats, those that inhabit North Africa, are the
direct ancestors of today's domestic cats.”
