The cat is considered to be one of the most psychic and intuitive animals, so if you see a cat in your dream you are probably receiving a psychic vision. There is of course the literal interpretation if you see a family pet in your dream that you are simply enjoying your family pet in your dream world as well. But cats that you are not familiar with in your dream should be paid attention to, as they come to you with important psychic vibrations and messages of enlightenment. Sometimes the message is to simply trust your own psychic visions or intuition, and often the details surrounding the cat in the dream will help you accomplish that understanding.
