I’m getting back into the mood for writing again. So I am going to talk about one of my favorite animals, the cat. I know some of you are saying a cat! – merry laughter. Yes, the cat. Believe it or not, people can learn a few good lessons from a cat. They are in fact the king of the animal kingdom so we have to appreciate some things. They are communion animals and are in fact spiritual. They are mysterious and God considers them a special animal of leadership and honor. That is probably why there is so much controversy about the cat among people. Let me explain my personal interpretation of the cat from what I have learned from my companion, pet, and friend the cat. Because we love each other I come to understand cats more and more and better than I have before. This dedicated to my previous cat, Hebrew that was kidnapped and my current pet, Israeli. God bless.
People’s Response to Cats and in History
The cat is a very powerful, distinct, and unique animal that can not be ignored. The responses people have toward the feline is admiration, love, fear, hate, curiosity. But I am certain the feelings of people in association with a cat are usually strong opinions, thoughts, and feelings. I also believe that it is a mystery because the cat is one of God’s/Messiah’s favorite animal. He has even titled one of his names after the cat. God of the Hebrew text has titled himself in Victory as The Lion of the Tribe of Judah – as one of his titles of leadership. And his meek and submissive title as “The Lamb of God. Feelings of Christ are very similar in humanities strong feelings towards Christ there are also strong feelings toward the mysterious cat. Time is named after Christ B.C. (Before Christ) and A.C (After Christ). Also in biblical history, the cat was highly revered in Egyptian society as an immortal being. Though I disagree with that belief, we can note the strong esteem to this animal in history and civilization. I do believe that the cat (lion) is considered a holy animal along with the horse and lamb (the lamb as an animal you can eat for it is the sacrificial animal in the bible and considered clean. As unholy animals in biblical symbols being the snake and the pig. But according to New Testament covenant you can eat whatever you want unlike the Old Testament Covenant Convenant without Christ’s sacrifice for people. I have eaten a squid before! – laughter
The Cat’s Language
What I have learned from the cat is the cat communicates in sign language with the tail. From the shape of an N, curve to the head, curve the other direction, low slant, high left slant, vibrating tail, spiked up tail and more. You will find cats talk through tail language. Also, cats talk through the eyes. Cats look deeply into the eyes and prefer to sit quietly and look into one’s eyes as a means to talk. They feel that is a conversation. The relaxed half-lid eyes are what cats believe is the communication of saying “All is well, I am fine, good, okay, nice, I see, and other similar expressions. These can take on a different meaning in given situations. But to appear relaxed is what cats considered the proper and best standard tone in communication. A wide eye stare is not appropriate to cats for they consider that as aggression for they see wide eyes as a sight to prey. Cats are predators by nature and their eyes are very important to catch their prey at night.
How Cats Feel and Think
Think of the cat as a ninja warrior. They enter their new home and jump and tumble under the couch and pull out their nun-chucks and carefully study the new environment to see if all is safe to come out. Just know you have a little Jedi warrior and there is nothing you can do but be the best roommate to your little fighter friend.

For Your Pet Cat
Cats are like frat club friends. Schedule one day of the week to stay up with your cat at night. For cats are nocturnal and their instinct is to stay up most of the evening for predatory reasons. They know most living creatures are asleep at night. Cats are stalkers by nature. Also, pray to God for the frat club night to be over.
Treats: Most cats love temptation kitty treats, coconut oil, and catnip.
If they are a Siamese cat: The Siamese cat is like the pit-bull of the domestic cat kingdom. Know they are hi-tech athlete acrobats and are going to do allot of tricks and are super smart. Give them another Siamese cat for they very relationship bound and verbal in speech. This is best practice if you own a Siamese cat because they have allot of energy and need deeper relationship time.
How to Discipline your Cat.
#1 the best way is to say no firmly. This is how you show them what is exactly right and wrong.
#2 If all else fails and your Siamese cat found a way to open the cabinet and eat all the coconut oil then you must show them the jar and firmly say no. If they are hard headed and they keep doing the same thing you told them not to do. Then say no and put them in a crate for a time out. If they are continually defiant then say now and softly slap them on the thigh. Note most domestic cats will not be so hard-headed to hit them. But this may not be so with exotic cats. Exotic cats are different and can be more
#3 The last resort is put them in a crate and take the crate to the pound to see the other cats and see where they came from. Then go back home with them. Next, Every time you need them to calm down, not bother you, or other problem you told them not to do just take out the crate and leave it out for them to see. They will understand they must be on good behavior. This is nonviolent and extreme disciplinary. You will only have to pull out the crate for them to see for the lifetime of the cat to learn lessons.
Note most cats do not need more than step number one discipline because most cats are sensitive and a firm no is all it should take.
