  • I am a very aware cat, and I move from place to place with speed and agility. I am secretive in this manner. I've had past lives as a black panther and know how to stalk animals, humans, and other beings. I like a challenge. I like the opportunity to sneak up and prey. Part of my nature is to scare and attack. In this sense, I am a balancing act for this family. They are all so light-headed. - I have been a big cat (panther, lion) many times in life. I do not have the tolerance or patience of a house cat. I am most happy roaming, being free. I could tell you some hard lessons about the nature of freedom, ones not all lightheads want to hear.
