To dream of a dead cat – Interpretation of prophetic dreams
So you dreamed about a dead cat and now you are filled with worry, highlighting the possible meaning of your dream. You are trembling. Your inner sanctum is in chaos. Wondering what this could mean?
To understand the cat dream you just had, you need to look at the dream from a unique perspective and ask yourself some basic questions.
What does a cat mean to you? Do you like cats at all? Or are you just indifferent to them? How do you feel when you see a cat? Do you automatically feel an instant attraction?
The meaning of a cat to you will help you determine exactly what your dream means.
Let me give you an example of a cat dream I had.
I had a dream at night sometime in November 2009. In my dream I was in the backyard of a house. The evening was approaching. I found myself swimming with a cat in the lake that was behind the house. Whose house was that, I don’t know. But I was swimming in the lake with the cat right next to me.
Being a human, I can apparently swim much faster than a cat. So I swam at my usual pace, but before long there was some distance between me and this cat. I didn’t notice that right away. When I looked back to see the cat, the cat had sunk to the bottom of the lake.
I hurried back to the cat, and when I got there, the cat was at the bottom of the pond, eyes wide open as if in terror. He wasn’t struggling as you would expect a drowned cat to be, he just lay there frozen with his eyes staring at me. I looked at this cat and wondered if I should dive to the bottom of the lake to retrieve it.
But as I thought about it, I thought, why even bother? I’m not a cat at all. I have no attraction to them. I consider them fearsome creatures. They are lazy and only care about themselves, unlike dogs. I’m more of a dog person. But in this dream I dreamed of a cat, an animal that I just didn’t care about.
After a few moments of thought, I decided to leave the cat at the bottom of the lake, then swim out. However, when I got out of the lake, I couldn’t get away from him. I fell into doubt. I stood there on the shore of the lake, lost in thought. I still couldn’t stop thinking about the cat. I wondered if leaving him alone was the right decision. Should I go back for him and perform CPR? How ridiculous would that be? Do I even know how to do CPR on an animal?
As I contemplated my next move, I awoke from my dream.
When I woke up from this dream I was quite confused. I woke up with a steady pulse, unlike other times when I had dreams predicting ominous events. I was curious as to what this particular dream might mean. I was confused by this, but not worried.
A few weeks after the dream, my girlfriend and I broke up suddenly. It was an emotionally tumultuous time in my life. I loved the girl very much, but deep in my heart I always knew that she was not the type of woman that a man like me should take seriously.
However, the breakup was devastating. The emotional pain I experienced was horrific. My soul was troubled. I have struggled with many unworthy schemes for some form of reconciliation, and while I have implemented some of them, none of them have brought me any closer to my heart’s desires. With hands heavy with tears, I reached out hoping for a better tomorrow, but it never came, at least not as quickly as I would have liked.
Over time, however, I began to dawn on a stark realization. I knew I was better off without this girl because of some questionable characteristics she had that I tried to sweep under the rug. She liked to party too much, never liked to stay in the house, got bored quite easily, was always on the move, only cared about herself (a classic cat trait), was very combative and didn’t seem to understand the fights between couples should is short-lived. Before the breakup, I ignored all of these telltale signs for reasons I’m sure some of you can imagine. I was emotionally attached.
A few months after the breakup. We got together again. But like oil and water, we parted again shortly after. I loved the girl, I won’t deny that. However, her behavioral characteristics were simply not conducive to a harmonious relationship. So, in the interest of my own happiness, as opposed to the relentless barrage of poignant melancholic feelings I was battling, I decided to leave her alone… forever!
It was painful and I doubted the decision, but I knew it was for the best. Even if she was begging me to take her back, maybe I’d consider it, but ultimately I’d give up on making her a permanent companion. Contrary to popular belief, I know that people don’t change. They may change certain characteristics of themselves, but their overall personality, moral values, beliefs will remain the same.
Now let’s look at the symbols of this dream.
Lake = The lake in this dream is the connection between me and my ex.
Swimming = The act of swimming in this lake signifies her and I’s attempts to relate together.
Ability = The fact that I swam faster than her to the point where she fell behind meant that I had more to give in that relationship than she did. She had no desire to be the same caring, considerate and selfless person that I am.
In other words, in the relationship pond we were in, I swam and got farther than the cat because, as in the real-life relationship that the dream was an allegory of, I was the more powerful. I was the one with the ability to do more.
In the dream I was swimming with a purpose. Even though I had no destination in mind, I swam like I did. She didn’t, so she gave up when she couldn’t maintain my commitment to the relationship.
Look, if you dream of a dead cat, stop thinking that dream dictionaries can help you. As you can see from the above situation, a prophetic dream is always unique to the individual who had it. Always remember this. What does a cat mean to you? Answer this question and you will reveal the mystery of your dream!
