We can gain a lot of knowledge about ourselves through our dreams.

Depending on what we dream about, how we feel about that dream, and the associations we make with the subjects while dreaming, a single dream could mean different things to different people.

Luckily, common dream subjects like the white cat dream have well-defined meanings.

So if you’ve just had a white cat dream and want to know what it means, read on and see if any of these interpretations chime with you.

White Cat Dream: A Spirit Guide

The first type of white cat dream tends to occur in people who have been struggling with their spirituality.

The elusive and mysterious nature of the cat in this instance refers to the next level of spiritual growth that is just out of grasp.

White cats can often symbolize spirits, and the white cat in this type of dream is a spirit guide trying to help you along your spiritual journey.

If this is the case, you will awake with the urge to meditate or to connect with nature.

You should follow this urge, secure in the knowledge that your spirit guides are actively helping you at this time.

White Cat Dream: Difficulty Lies Ahead

The white cat has long symbolized difficult times.

Like the black cat (which is thought by some to bring bad luck), the white cat is often an omen giving you a peek at the future.

These difficulties will be unseen until the last moment and will be a real challenge to deal with.

If this is the case, you will awake with feelings of dread and fear.

But don’t get too worried – the Universe has given you a warning, and you now have time to prepare.

So prepare for a period of hardship and know that with the strength of will and character you will emerge on the other side a better person for it.

White Cat Dream: Medical Problems

The color white in dreams often represents some medical concern as many people associate it with the white coats that doctors wear and the sterile environment of a hospital.

Again, this is a hidden problem, just eluding notice.

It might be that you have a medical problem that you have yet to notice, but it is more likely that someone you know is about to be touched by illness.

If this is the case, you will awake with aches and pains or a sore throat.

Be aware though that you might be waking with a sore throat for other reasons, so if you are a snorer don’t take that as a sign that there is something wrong with you.

With this type of dream, it is a good idea to get a general health check-up and to encourage others to do the same.

Is it fearful of another animal? Then this may indicate some outside force that is causing fear inside yourself.

If the cat appears calm and unbothered by its surroundings or any animal, then it is a sign that this outside force does not affect you or your reality.


Dreaming of a white cat can mean different things. It all depends on the context and symbolism behind it.

So those are the most common interpretations of white cat dreams. Remember, the more a dream reoccurs, the more urgent it is, so, the more attention you should pay it.
