If the dreamer was warm and friendly towards the cat, then the dreamer is a good communicator.

The opposite of a cat in the dream is a dog, which represents courage, loyalty, friendship, and protection. Dogs are seen as dependable and emotionally available, good listeners, and companions. Dogs tend to awaken the dreamer from sleep and give the dreamer a sense of security. Dogs are also considered to be the antithesis of cats.

On another note, a cat who has dreams about her owner is thought to have some kitty wisdom. Cats may not talk (and we would not want them to!) but they understand the need for their owner to connect with other human beings. When the cat wants something, they will often place themselves in front of the person who is willing to assist. Cats may also understand that certain human emotions cannot be expressed through human speech and that expressing emotion through the physical world of objects is a means of connecting with those emotions.

Get a Dreamcatcher –  hold your dreamcatcher inside your dreams and let your cat dreams come to life!

Dreams are the language of the soul. Words are the fingers of the mind. Dreamcatchers have both.

Dreamcatchers are believed to capture bad dreams and allow the good dreams to pass through. The good dreams are passed through the dreamcatchers to the sleeper. Good dreams keep the dreamer alive and healthy. Bad dreams make the dreamer ill, a nightmare. The good dreams pass through for interpretation. Good dreams are equally important as bad dreams and the interpretation of each is necessary to achieve a healthy life. Good dreams allow the dreamer to see that dreams come from within, which is necessary because, unlike bad dreams, good dreams are a mixture of imagination and objective experience.

The good dream that contains something from the outside world is called an “object dream” and the object is what represents the dreamer’s connection with the outside world. For example, a friend or partner who appears in a dream represents the need for a person to “connect” with another. This connection might be social, sexual, or even emotional, depending on the aspect of the relationship conveyed in the dream. When a non-physical aspect like a relationship or emotion is suggested, other objects from the dreamer’s waking life, like his environment or possessions, are used to represent other aspects in the dream. The dream is a metaphor that allows the dreamer to understand something about his life, not an actual “escape” as in the bad, nightmare type of dream. 

Because cats tend to be “dreaming with their life,” as described by psychologist/animal behaviorist Carl Jung, humans have long believed that cats have instinctive knowledge about dreams. Some cat owners believe that cats observe their dreams and interpret them, like the way that they are said to understand body language. Whether this is true or not, there is no question that cats tend to live in a “parallel reality” compared to humans and that cats are often seen doing things in their dreams that they would not do while awake. For example, perhaps a cat would sleep with his tail half out of his sleeping hole in broad daylight but a cat might have his tail firmly tucked in while he sleepwalks through a dream without waking up.
