    It's different for everyone. Some are more prone to 'seeing' things in their mind, lessons that are taught. Others quite literally hear voices. Some talk to them in meditation. And others, like myself, just get inspired sometimes without realizing it at first. My fylgia, the one that shares my soul (in Norse lore) is a Black Cat. I grew up with cats and observed them for many hours. A lot of my movements, the way I respond to touch, even the cattiness I can display...people notice that this animal 'walks besides me'.

    I have others that come into my life whenever necessary. The only reason I know this is because I suddenly notice their characteristics/their type of challenges to teach me popping up in my life again

You'll find the animal quite useful if you spend some time researching how and why it operates the way it does. As for you helping yourself, I have no doubt this is true. I also have no doubt, considering your clearly strong attachement to this animal, it influences you more than you realize
    Yes well, that does seem dead on.

    However, wether wolves existed or not. I would still believe those things to be important. So do they really influence me? Well, surely to some small extent, everything does, but I doubt they are key in shaping me.

    But I do find this all fairly interesting.

    Probably because you enter their personal space the way you do. Cats...tend to want to do things on their own time, not be forced into anything, not be stared at. I imagine you have quite a confident step, and don't have a problem looking directly at them. You're being rude, in their eyes. Did you ever notice how the people who couldn't care less about cats, get mobbed by them? It's coz they don't make eye-contact, they don't try to get near the cat or draw its attention, leaving the ball pretty much in the cat's court. And cat's are incredibly curious...

    Probably also doesn't help, if you do in fact have a dog-totem

    Cats and dogs are like this. !

    We've had cats and dogs living together for as long as I can remember, and they cuddle and lick each other all over as if they're one and the same species! :P

    Cats do tend to be jealous quickly though, I think that is why they may not like Jenocyde.

    They're meant for guidance..not for controlling your life. Ultimately, you still decide your own fate

    Yes, I walk into my sister's house and try to grab her cats and they don't like it. I constantly complain that there is no point to live with an animal, especially one that doesn't like to be around people. Makes no sense. I've recently begun to have allergies to cats, actually. And when tomcats are mating in my backyard, it's a horrible horrible sound which I detest.

    And of course I look at their eyes! Am I supposed to give obeisance to an animal, or even to another human? I think not...

    And if I think about it, I was just typing in the Fe thread that I like people who sacrifice themselves for the greater good. A protect the pack mentality. More like dogs. Hmmm. You've given me something to think about.

    Fair enough!

    So really it's not about spirits or anything of that sort, but purely about inspiration and how we tap in to that source of inspiration.

    By the way, I'm sure you believe otherwise, I'm just forming an opinion myself. It doesn't strike me as supernatural.

    Cats do tend to be jealous quickly though, I think that is why they may not like Jenocyde.
    If the communication barrier between the two species is in fact bridged and there is no rivalry, it is often not a problem. However, rivalry for food, attention, toys or territory will bring back the old disputes quickly.

    Some cats are very much affection motivated, but it is in my experience mostly dogs that tend to get 'jealous' as they are pack animals. What is perceived as jealousy in cats is often the fact that they are uncomfortable that someone is passing through their personal space (aka, territorial animals). Cats don't do hierarchy but actually do a form of time-sharing. They have appointments as in 'In the morning I'm lying in that spot and in the afternoon, you get it after I'm long gone, so I don't have to see your face and we don't have to deal with each other'. This is especially true if they don't like each other much. Dogs...don't really respect those rules, hence cats can get annoyed at that

    Well they work that way for me. I feel a 'gut' reaction when they talk. Others claim to be able to see them and talk to them. I cannot vouch for that personally
