What Do Cats Symbolize?
Genetic research has recently revealed that cats have coexisted with human societies for far longer than previously assumed. This means that, unlike dogs, whose DNA diverged when they were domesticated from wolves, domesticated cats’ DNA has mainly remained constant. This could be because cats were tamed and coexisted with humans only much later in history. Whereas dogs were domesticated at the end of the Paleolithic period (15,000 years ago), evidence suggests that cats originally lived with humans in the Neolithic period (in an undomesticated form) (8,000 years ago). Humans began producing and storing food in the Neolithic period, which attracted rodents cats hunted as prey.
Although there is no evidence of cat domestication during this time, it is increasingly likely that cat domestication occurred in predynastic Egypt (before 3150 BC) and dynastic Egypt (after 3150 BC). Iconography from these times shows that humans had formed vital and profound ties with cats, as well as a complex set of ideas about them. Egyptians revered cats and worshiped cat-deities who represented fertility, power, and justice, as is well known. Cats are thought to have moved from Egypt to other nations over ancient trading routes, eventually integrating with many cultures worldwide.
Various cultures have various and often complex beliefs about the cats that exist in and around their society today. Cats are seen as either auspicious or terrible omens in several cultures worldwide. The cat is a valued animal in most Muslim civilizations. Given the proximity, this could be linked to the Egyptian veneration of cats, which originated in the Near East.
The prophet Muhammad is claimed to have outlawed the slaughter of cats when a cat saved him from a snake assault, according to hadiths (divine tales or narratives). After that, Muhammad became a fierce guardian of cats, perhaps thank you for saving him. Abu Huriah, one of his friends, even mentions that Muhammad said a woman would go to hell for starving a kitten.
Cats are adored by Muslims worldwide, not only in the Middle East. When it comes to the beliefs of Muslims in the vicinity of Tomini Bay (Indonesia). Muslims, according to scholars, have a specific affection for cats and a unique set of ideas on how to treat them. Cats, in particular, play a significance in one’s afterlife destiny. When one enters the afterlife, it is said that after walking around for a while, the spirit arrives on a bridge across a river, where a cat sits guard.
In its precise and quick motions, cat symbolism expresses confidence and mystery. Even a cat totem’s face, particularly its eyes, exudes a sense of enchantment and secret. Their stare is austere and unwavering. Nonetheless, unless they become tired of their subject, they are unyielding. For one thing, Cat Spirit Animal has become aloof because of this attitude. As a result, this can be both positive and harmful, depending on the situation. Cats are known for their enigmatic and occasionally odd behavior.
On the other hand, the cat totem can symbolize magic, independence, alertness, and cleverness.
