Ailuromancy

Ailuromancy

How many of you have kitties? :))) Did you know that there is a divination method involving cats? It's called Ailuromancy, or felidomancy. It's a form of theriomancy, which is divination of animal movements. Since ancient times cats have been associated with witches so I wasn't surprised to see this one. So how does it work? Here's a few things you can look for.

- If a cat turns it's tail to the fire, it indicates a change in weather, in particular rain or a heavy frost.
- If the cat is curled up on the ground with it's forehead touching the ground it means stormy weather is coming.
- A cat washing it's ears or face can indicate that rain is coming soon.
- If a cat is following you it means money is coming your way.
- If a cat washes it's ear three times you can expect a visitor from the direction that it's looking.
- If a cat is grooming itself and puts it's paw around it's right ear it means a gentleman is coming, left ear a lady is coming to visit.
- If an unfamiliar black cat suddently enters your house it indicates good fortune.
- In Britain if a black cat crosses your path it is considered good luck, however in the US it's considered bad luck.
- If a white cat crosses your path you are very lucky.
- If a gray cat crosses your path it is good luck. 

Do you know of any others?
