Cat Tarot

Let feline friends guide you...

The ancient Egyptians revered cats as protectors, often depicting their gods as cats. While felines may not be worshipped today they are definitely favored pets and beloved members of our families, with many people believing that cats have preternatural senses. So it seems purr-fect that celebrated cat illustrator Megan Lynn Kott would create a tarot deck that features mystic felines to assist in divination.

Cat fans will love how Kott pairs the unique feline spirit and personality with the classic major arcana cards: a cautious kitty peers from a paper bag hiding place as “The Hermit,” while cats play on the carpeted “Tower.” The minor arcana also get the feline treatment as kitties play with various “Wands,” drink from a selection of “Cups,” use their “Swords” (nails), or pursue bits of kibble (a.k.a. “Pentacles”). A 108-page booklet, written by Julia Smillie, guides you on how to layout the cards and decipher their meaning.
