The Cat is the embodiment of our members. It is an untameable force. It insists upon itself, and if we are to change the world, we MUST insist upon that change and not be lulled by society into conforming to things which are against our conscious. The cat is a symbol of rebirth and resurrection. It is patient and discerning, carefully orchestrating its moment. It’s independent yet social. It’s courageous and spirited. It’s adventurous and curious, a truth seeker. Within our community we need that desire to “know” or discover, to keep us moving forward whether it be medically, socially or technologically. The cat also represents healing. It is a profound healing which takes place from the inside out. For some the cat has spiritual and cultural significance. The lion is a cat.
