The cat as a symbol
The cat with its big eyes and the free being already fascinated the ancient Egyptians. Her cat goddess “Bastet” stood for love and fertility and she was ascribed both gentle and angry qualities.
Even today we still like to say that cats have a “will of their own”, in contrast to the dog, which is just as popular as a pet and always wants to please. However, the saying “like cats and dogs” does not always apply.
The stillness of the cat and its silent creeping up give the house cat something uncanny. In superstition they are often associated with witches and magic. Their nocturnal activity connects them with the moon. Since cats' eyes can change color depending on the light, they also have a connection to the sun and thus combine the masculine and feminine aspects. Although we tend to associate the domestic cat with femininity, it is also related to the lion, which we associate much more with masculinity and the strength of the sun.
We find black cats to be particularly special and somewhat threatening, which unfortunately even goes so far that they are harder to adopt in animal welfare. But other coat colors also have interesting ones Meanings in mythology and fairy tales.
The cat as a power animal symbolizes above all individuality and self-confidence, femininity, temperament and gentleness. Your inner freedom is reflected in a certain unpredictability that can be seductive.
Jewelry with cats is therefore wonderful for strong women who are not without a sense of humor. Of course also for cat lovers. And as with all pets - there are of course also cute motifs for children. 🐾
