Synchronicity of the Cat Killers - Two Ritualistic Cat Killings in Two Different States, all within Two Months of each other

Two disturbing stories have surfaced in the last week, both involving the odd ritualistic murder of cats. Are there influences at work that are beyond our understanding? I'll delve into this matter after a brief summation of the cat killings. The first mysterious murders come from Yonkers New York, the second is from Lakeland Florida.

On Thursday, April 24th 2014 in Yonkers New York, sanitation workers were doing routine work in a vacant lot when they saw an array of plastic bags hanging from a tree. The bodies of 25 cats were stuffed inside the hanging plastic bags. The discovery left the residents of the community more than a little unnerved. “I’m scared, because what if next it’s people?” Asked 22 year old Shatiqua Shubrick who has a valid point, its known that serial killers sometimes start with animal kills and then graduate to bigger game. Thankfully, authorities have found no evidence of torture. The cats were killed by blunt force trauma. This is an area where there are many stay cats, but those cats have been mysteriously disappearing as of late.

Authorities have been looking for the feline killer, they have some leads and fear that the 'sick trophies' might be some kind of sadistic ritual. This is not the first time cat corpses have been found in the same lot. Last year, Brett Pisano of the city Department of Public Works said that there were bags and bodies found in the same area in the summer of 2013, only there weren't as many bodies.

Only a day and half later, in Lakeland Florida, a story came to light that over the last two months, 3 mutilated bodies of cats had been discovered. In two of these cases, the back half of the felines bodies were missing. The third was found with a large hole in its chest, apparently from a knife wound. The difference between this story and the New York killings, is that the Florida cats are peoples pets. Its upsetting, especially since now, 5 neighbors are now reporting that they too have missing cats.

A $750 reward is being offered to help nab the Lakeland cat killer. Police spokesman Gary Gross told The Ledger; "This is bizarre and sadistic. This is how serial killers start."

What can we draw from all of this? The synchronicity of these two events makes me wonder what the cat killers may have in common. Some kind of weird satanic cult? I don't think the killings are related in a physical sense. But is there something in the air? A nervous response to their inner and outer world. Like a flock of birds stirred by the wind, does something move the minds of those that are unable to tune out the impulses? As in astrology, are they moved by external forces that they themselves do not fully understand? The glow of the full moon? The negative forces from the dark of the moon? 

Speaking of the moon, in ancient times, the moon and cats were associated with one another. We are currently going through a phase of 'Blood Moons'. April 15th was a blood moon and a lunar eclipse. Are the cat killings Sacrifices to the Moon Goddess? Maybe not on a conscious level but on an unconscious one?

Nearly 75% of the human body consists of water. Both the moon and sun influence tremendous force on the earths ocean and sea tides according to NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
"When the sun, moon, and Earth are in alignment (at the time of the new or full moon), the solar tide has an additive effect on the lunar tide, creating extra-high high tides, and very low, low tides—both commonly called spring tides." NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Is the moon to blame for stirring-up the cat killers? Perhaps, if you look at the moon like alcohol for an alcoholic. It can bring out the worst in people. 

There are a few other similarities in these stories. In both, service workers discovered the grisly remains. In both cases, the killings happened outside of a major metropolitan hub, (New York City and Tampa). In both cases, someone fears that the killers may move on to killing people next. Lets hope it does not come to that. I fear that in a few years, a sanitation worker or groundskeeper will stumble across the body of a human victim in some abandoned lot. It may all mean nothing, or it points to how interconnected our seemingly unconnected lives are with the fabric of unseen forces around us.
