Dream Interpretation: What Does it Mean to Dream About a White Cat?!

You Have to Look at Three Separate Details from the Dream…

Cat dreams can have many different meanings and interpretations – a lot of it has to do with your feelings toward these beautiful animals. Me? I’m a crazy cat lady, if there ever was one, so they represent joy, love, happiness, fun, and a million and one other positive things to me.

However, some people are actually frightened by cats and seem to have a phobia to them. Unheard of! For such a person, their dream would represent fear and a plethora of anxieties and negative feelings.

Other people view cats as signs of good luck. Some think black cats are symbols of good luck while others believe all cats are lucky.

Cats are also symbolic to many people of

  • mystery
  • sneakiness
  • unpredictability
  • aloofness
  • humor!

The cat in the dream would, in and of itself, be symbolic of how YOU (the dreamer) feel about cats. This symbolism would, thereby, be the “heart” of the dream. For example, if you associate mysteriousness with cats, there may be something in your daily life that you’re trying to wrap your head around… something you’re trying to figure out.

As for the second step in interpreting this dream, you need to look at the color of the cat – in this case, white.

White in dreams is usually symbolic of…

  • purity (such as pure snow)
  • cleanliness, without blemish or spot

However, for many people, white may also symbolize nurses or doctors, due to the medical uniforms and jackets.  If this is the case, the dream could be more about something the dreamer is going through that’s health-related (or something someone they care about is going through OR even something they fear going through). If the dreamer is afraid of cats, to any degree, this is more likely than not the case.

The third thing you’d need to look at for the interpretation of this type of dream is how you felt during the dream and upon wakening. Our emotions in the dream (and immediately after waking from the dream) have more to say about a dream and its meaning than most people realize. Always put your emotions front and center when determining what your dream means.
