Kittens in Peril

In the past month, I've had 3 nightmares about kittens in danger. What's up with that? In one, the kittens were merely abandoned and needed care. In another, the kittens were being attacked by this deranged woman with a shotgun. In tonight's episode, the kittens were being menaced by a dragon. (Hiding under the dining room table was enough to protect them — obviously. Don't you question Dream Logic.)

So why is my unconscious so fearful about kittens' safety, all of a sudden? I haven't been around kittens in ages. Very strange.

Hmm. Is there anything in your life that needs protecting? Might you be pregnant?

Nope, not pregnant. :)

My mom's theory is that it's job-related stress. But I've been having non-kitten nightmares for the better part of this year, so that doesn't seem to account for the bad dreams, either.

"Might you be pregnant?" -> Bwahahahahahahahaha. Ahem. Sorry.

Anyway... if you're really curious you can hop over to B&N and check out the psychology section for dream dictionaries. They "interpret" what various symbols that occur in dreams mean. There are a lot of different versions with different information, so look through a couple.

I'm not saying they are the end-all, be-all... but sometimes they turn up something surprising.
