As far as I know, I think most of us have reoccurring dreams, but do you have reoccurring dreams about your cats? How about your dead ones? I do! I wanted to share mine, see what your interpretations were and also see what your dreams were. Keep in mind, Rags has been dead two years.
Here’s my reoccuring cat dream:
I am talking with my mom in the kitchen at the house I grew up in, and I suddenly panic recalling that Rags is in the basement.
(Quick background information: my parents don’t live in the home I grew up in – in fact, I haven’t been in that house for 16 years. Rags was 10 years old when my parents moved out of that house. So I had him another 10 years after that – because of that, it’s crazy that’s where I am in the dream. His litter box was in the basement at that house and he had a cat door to get in and out of the basement. But the reason he is “locked” down there is because I remember him in his kidney failure state, where he didn’t move much. For example, he didn’t venture out of the basement in my current house in the last 2 months of his life, unless I physically moved him – and then he would always return to the basement. So he is stuck down there because he doesn’t move much).
So he’s in the basement and has been there for days. I run down there as fast as I can, and he is always there and miraculousy still alive. I then bring him upstairs crying hysterically into his fur and apologizing to him and thank him for surviving!
I then wake up and realize it was all a dream. It’s horrible, not only because I feel horrible that I’m irresponsible and left him downstairs, but then I have the moment of happiness that he is alive and I wake up from the dream and realize he is dead. Maybe this post title should be, “Reoccurring Cat Nightmares”!
