"Like the feline, with her poised grace and untamed spirit, a woman too holds within her the power to create, to nurture, and to transform. She embodies a divine paradox - soft yet strong, loving yet fierce, embodying both the serenity of a silent night and the roar of a rising storm." -Augustus

An Historical and Cultural Context: In many ancient cultures, cats were revered and often associated with goddesses and powerful women. For example, in Ancient Egypt, the goddess Bastet, often depicted with the head of a lioness or a domestic cat, was the goddess of home, fertility, and childbirth, protector of the pharaoh, and also the goddess of sunrise.

Symbolic Meaning: Cats are often seen as symbols of mystery, independence, grace, and agility – characteristics that are also often associated with femininity.

Social Constructs: Societally, cats have sometimes been portrayed alongside women as companions, further strengthening the association. 

Behavioral Traits: Both cats and traditional notions of femininity can project an aura of independence and self-sufficiency. They can be nurturing (a mother cat with her kittens, a woman with her children), but also display an assertive side when necessary.
