If you dream of cats attacking you, it means you are facing jealousy and antagonism in your waking reality. You may also be seeing rivalry, dishonesty and other negative traits. Cats are often used as an excuse by women when they need to explain a transgression they made. For example, a woman who has encroached upon the territory of another woman, may like to say she has borrowed the other woman’s space, to escape from cats who are following her. In truth, domestic felines are a cautious lot who would rather flee humans than stay their ground.
