The Egyptians believed that cats carry the light of human intelligence. I couldn't agree more! My three felines are like my fur gurus, teaching me to be gentle and loving with them, as I learn their boundries of respect. They seem to live in a spiritual realm, especially when they stare off for great lengths of time, at apparently nothing. Yoga postures were developed from watching cats. They are so relaxed, cool and calculated. It's no surprize we have terms like "cat nap' and "cool cat". Cats have also been rated as the worlds greatest hunters, due to their incredable concentration. To me, cats are the worlds greatest spiritual animals, period!
