A four-leaf clover, a rabbit’s foot, an evil eye protection charm, horseshoes over a doorway, rainbows after a storm, these are many of our good luck signs or foretellings of positive futures. But this week after finding two of my cat’s whiskers in unusual locations I am wondering, is this a good sign?
Cat whiskers, if you didn’t know, are rather fascinating. Whiskers allow cats to determine if they can fit through a space by providing spatial awareness, they help them sense changes in air currents and they transmit information about the size, shape, and speed of nearby objects.
Does finding Bhakti’s whiskers that she’s shed naturally throughout my home mean that they are trying to tell me something? There is the possibility that it means I need to clean my house better. Well, I do but that’s for another day.
I found one on my desk and then the second one on the basements steps. After I found the second one I thought, hmm that’s weird for me to find two in a week. I wonder what that means? And when you want to know the answer to anything, you go to the Oracle aka Google.
Lo and behold, finding a cat whisker is a sign of good luck because cats shed them infrequently. Now the Oracle did also offer 20,000 other entries about how it could mean something terrible for my feline’s health if she shed too many and all kinds of other doom and gloom that I promptly ignored. This is a lesson in when to turn your back on the Oracle once you get the answer you seek. It’s like the Magic 8 Ball: As I see it, yes.
If you try to pepper the 8 Ball for a better answer you may get: Ask again later
I am going to start having good luck!!! The Magic 8 Ball, two cat whiskers, and the Oracle (Google) say so…
Maybe I should play the lottery! I am not sure but in the meantime be sure to throw some salt over your shoulder, spin around three times, and spit. Have a great weekend.
