Cats dream meanings

Cat Dream Meaning

The cat as a symbol in your dream the cat can suggest that cats are connected to love, emotions, intuition, curiosity, flexibility, and potential. And, if the cat is aggressive this can indicate someone being deceitful towards you. I always see the "cat" dream as being positive in many ways. To truly understand the significance of your dream of cats, we must first delve into their symbolism in different cultures throughout history. In ancient Egypt, cats were seen as sacred animals associated with the goddess Bastet. They were believed to possess divine powers and were often depicted in hieroglyphics as protectors. That is why I think you should be pleased that you have had this dream, it is like a big hug from the universe.

Let us first look into the meanings behind the most popular cat colors and what their appearance in your dreams may represent.

1. Black Cats: Often associated with superstitions, black cats have been portrayed as bad omens for centuries. However, in many cultures, they are also seen as guardians or protectors against negative energy. If you dream of a black cat, it could suggest that you have strong instincts and intuition guiding you through life.

2. White Cats: The color white is often associated with purity and innocence. In the spiritual world, white cats represent truthfulness and clarity of thought. If you dream of a white cat, it could indicate that you need to pay attention to your inner voice and trust your instincts to make important decisions. I also feel white is very spiritual and can suggest that you may encounter a spiritual sign after having this dream.

3. Orange Cats: These vibrant felines are known for their playful personalities and boldness. Dreaming about an orange cat could mean that you need to let go of any fears or inhibitions holding you back from taking risks or making big changes in your life. If the cat is not yours or you have never seen this orange cat before this dream can mean that you may get a guest visit the house according to my older dream books.

4. Calico Cats: With their unique tri-colored coat pattern, calico cats are considered lucky charms in Japanese culture. Seeing them in your dreams could represent balance and harmony between all aspects of your life --- whether it be relationships, work-life balance, or self-care.

5. Caliopean Blue: The rarest yet most mesmerizing color for a kitty would be the Caliopean blue-grey hypnotic Persian teacup lilac Balinese; this color is believed to harness immense healing powers according to Eastern beliefs. Such dreams may indicate that someone or something is trying to heal you from within and guide you toward serenity.

6. Tabby Cats: These striped beauties (I used to have a Tabby cat called Tabby) these cats are known for their intelligence and agility. Dreams featuring tabby cats could be a sign that you have a lot of potential and inner strength to overcome any challenges in your life.

Remember, the cat colors in your dreams may hold different meanings for each individual based on their personal beliefs and experiences.

What is the spiritual meaning of the cat dream?

When cats look at you in real life they don't see you, they see energy, then it forms into a person. How many times have you seen cats looking and staring at something that just is not there? They can see the energy that we can't see. In between the animals and plants, there is nature spirits. That is why when you have a dream of a cat it is all about understanding people's energy.

I’m sure you would agree that cats often represent our power of observation or an ability to see the subtle aspects of life that others may miss. Cats and females share many characteristics: elegance, affection, fighting to protect, sensitivity, nurturing, a love of rest, and luxury. Therefore, there is a spiritual message in a cat dream, the qualities of the cat are something that women long to emulate, and generally, this dream is in connection with a female in your waking life. Cats don’t suffer from a lack of self-confidence or self-esteem issues. Throughout history, females have had a special relationship with cats, from the Egyptian goddesses to the witches of the Middle Ages. Cats embody the inner dark female side, and this is significant when interpreting your dream. 

Cats are normally represented as part of nature and this is demonstrative of femininity or womanhood in your life - whether you are male or female. Seeing a normal alley cat in dreams indicates that we need to look beyond various directions in life and try to gain the wisdom that we need. Cats have been domesticated and kept in homes from cave men times, and to see a friendly cat in a dream is generally associated with a pleasurable dreaming experience and joy in daily existence. 

What is the dream psychology interpretation of dreaming of a cat?

Sigmund Freud believed that cats in dreams are connected to one's own tension in daily life, and Carl Jung believed that cats were an archetype. The cat symbol can be a sign of expressing love and satisfaction to others according to dream psychology. The cat dream is urging you to free your mind, try to see what is holding you back. Cats are very self-sufficient, so your dream may be connected to independence, womanly instincts, originality, and supremacy.

I just want to add, that dreaming of a cat may be telling you to focus on your own intuitive powers and draw on them for guidance and direction. This dream can mean you need to actually look at how the cat is presented in your dream.  When interpreted spiritually, dreaming of an angry cat could signify that there is something amiss within life – something that needs addressing but which you’ve been unwilling or unable to face head-on until now. It might also be warning you not to ignore any anger that you feel.

What is the spiritual advice from a dream of cats?

There are messages hidden in our dreams and dream interpretation works through our spirit guides. Spiritually-oriented people often dream about cats as symbols of their connection with a higher power. It combines thoughts and feelings from different sources and assembles them into one image. 

  • Dreams are connected to our own internal state or higher consciousness. In essence, the cat dream can mean you are seeking female qualities in life
  • Explore your spiritual core and understand questions such as who am I, why am I here, What am I doing?
  • The cat dream urges you to look for a deeper meaningful reason for life and the females around you. Expressing your desires to other females and spiritual wellness
  • Understanding what is holding you back in life, it is easy to just chug along but the dream of a cat can try to make you understand what you need in order to form comfort going forward
  • Independence and being original at work
  • Protection is required in difficult times
  • Secrets and women gossiping
  • Advice from the dream of cats can include the following
  • A difficult time with a female over the next two weeks
  • That you need to think about navigating your life better
  • Good or bad luck will be yours in the next few days

So look, if you think about it cats in a spiritual sense can be incredibly varied, while many people think of cats as solitary animals --- that don’t need much affection, dreaming about them suggests otherwise. These sorts of dreams may represent a desire for connection and security in your life.

One common dream involving cats is trying to catch the cat and it just runs away before you get close enough. Another is that you have a cat in real life and you dream of them. Another common cat-related dream is one where a cat uses its claws or teeth to attack you. Even though this may be vivid ---  it usually stands for something different altogether: that you feel you are threatened by somebody or something in your waking life. Dreaming of a black cat that is attacking may be trying too hard at some task and it is causing stress instead of providing safety and relaxation. In some of my dream books cats can carry optimistic messages; perhaps if a cat jumps onto your lap then this could mean you are looking at personal growth and self-discovery will lead eventually to you feeling secure within yourself. 

What does it mean to dream of your own cat?

On a spiritual level, there is something special about owning a cat that brings out the best in people and allows them to unlock the hidden potential within themselves. Dreams of our own cat could be connected to either something "happening" to your cat in the dream such as your cat getting lost or otherwise just seeing their presence can mean friends around you are important. Our cat is connected to friendship. I also feel, that if you dream of seeing your cat this can indicate that something may be unsettling in the weeks to come but you can overcome anything.

There are many beliefs attached to having a cat around you at all times – such as it being good luck or drawing protection from evil spirits – but none of these beliefs hold any scientific proof so it’s important to remember that those superstitions do not necessarily apply to everyone equally. In order to win over our furry friends we must instead show our appreciation by taking care of them properly: feed them well-balanced meals (no table scraps please!), brush their fur regularly (which helps reduce shedding), clean their litter box often (which prevents unwelcome odors) and provide plenty of love! This dream could have just been sent to take more care of your kitty.

Is a cat dream good or bad?

The cat dream can indicate that you may encounter a difficult time with a female going forward. A cat featured in your dream can also be connected to the Egyptian cat goddess, which is associated with two sides: nature and personality. To dream of the domestic cat, commonly kept as a pet can often appear in the dream state when we have strong internal emotions. Freud and Jung have associated the dreams of cats with our hidden subconscious mind. This dream is extremely common and the famous psychologist Carl Jung believed that if you experienced a dream about a cat then you need to review your own inner thoughts. Carl Jung also believed that if you experienced a dream you need to look within your own sense of subconsciousness in order to find the true meaning. 

What is the magical meaning of a cat dream?

In the middle ages people associated cats with magical attributes. Edward Topsell's book called “the history of four-footed beasts and serpents (1607) detailed sinister interpretations and superstitions and portrayed the cat as a dangerous beast. This book talks about cat hair causing suffocation and blaming the cat for poisoning the mind. The reason I mention this is because to dream of a cat in the book he stated is related to failing passions and fear. There is a focus on supernatural vocalizations within the book and that the cat's rough tongue becomes an offensive weapon. There is a later passage in this book about cats hissing, puffing, scratching, and drawing blood. In essence, this book supports the dream theory that when cats attack in dreams this dream is connected to a supernatural focus and that indicates a flaming aspect of one's life - if the felines in dreams are a danger to humans. 

What is the cat doing in your dream?

It is important to understand the behavior of the cat in your dream, if the cat is fun, happy, and cuddly this is a positive dream. Biting or scratching cats can represent warnings of your subconscious mind. Cats are symbols of our own protection in life. Cat’s contribute to establishing a domestic scene in life. The cat could be prowling through a kitchen, attacking people, sleeping, or praying on mice. If you are feeling worried.

What is the mythology of the cat dream?

There is much artistic and mythological connection with cats, medieval literature and art demonstrate a closely linked, affection observation of cats. In ancient literature, the cat is often appearing less regularly than the dog or other animals, and its symbolic implications are not exalted. In a symbolic sense, the cat is a destroyer of small animals, if we turn to Aesops Fables cats were often connected to eating rats and cheese and seen as aggressive and crafty. Also, think about the cat's passion for mice and how this is often shown in much literature. Cats were also considered to be good pets to nuns who lived in poverty. Cats are often in pictures of the holy family, in Guilio Romano Madonna of the cat (1523) the cat is featured, as near the arms of John, a tortoiseshell cat glares up belligerently. 

The reason I am mentioning all of this is that the cat's avidity symbolic meaning is about hunting, vanishing, and visual powers, from a spiritual perspective, since the 1500s. The Egyptian goodness known as Bastet was traditionally split into two. Her head was in the shape of a lion and later a cat. This goddess is important to consider when understanding the spiritual meaning of a cat dream. In ancient times small figures of cats were worn as amulets, and this was popular in the cult of Bastet. This deity represents women's secrets, childbirth, protection, and fertility. Interestingly, she was associated with protecting people from evil spirits. 

Unfortunately, a cat dream may also indicate difficult times or bad luck. Cats are notorious for playing, hunting, and reaching out in the dark to find their prey. If you are a cat lover then this dream can signify that you are going to have more insight into daily life. Sometimes, if the cat is featured in a dream it can be somewhat confusing to understand the true meaning. Cats are considered somewhat crepuscular as they are active between dawn and dusk. This can suggest there is something that is hidden in waking life.

If a cat isn’t grooming itself or playing, the chances are high that the cat is sleeping. As most cats generally sleep up to 16 hours a day they are most active in the middle of the night. Ironically they spend almost ALL of their time sleeping. It is believed that cats cannot see red, but they can see the difference between yellow and blue. The cat's eyes also dilate even when they are worried or anxious. How do you feel when you're anxious? Siamese and Himalayan cats have a power point and dreaming of this breed of cat is connected to the process of creation and the divinity expressed by oneself. If we put dreaming of cats in simple forms they are connected with the components of spirit, mind, reality, and how we navigate our own life. 

What is the biblical meaning of cats in dreams?

The Bible is quite interesting when it comes to cats, there are many Scriptures about how cats are domesticated, and there is a reference to lions and also wildcats so I’m going to quickly go over the biblical verses and apply these to your dream meaning. I think it’s important to analyze biblical meanings in connection with dreams because it gives us some spiritual aspects in terms of arriving at a conclusion about what your dream really means. The Bible mentions around a hundred animals, but the cat is often referred to as a “cattie.” If we turn to the scripture of Baruch 6:21-22 this verse is connected to a cat in the sense of female martens. In ancient times, cats in the middle east would have notably been living in a household. 

Pets are mentioned in the bible and there are many mentions of animals that are companions. The lion and leopard are, however, mentioned many times in scripture so we can derive the meaning of the dream of cats from these scriptures. They are referred to as “king of the beasts” and the hiding of Daniel in the lion's den. Therefore, from a biblical perspective, cats can be connected to understanding there might be direct danger ahead. The lion is mentioned in total 157 times in the bible and the symbolic meaning is also about being strong in the face of adversity. In Peter 5:8 there is a passage that states the roaring lion is evil and represents death. Psalm 10:8-9 also refers to the cat as evil and that this can indicate secrets in life. This psalm also details that “one will be helpless due to a fall of strength.” suffice to say, cats in the bible could represent that one should have command and respect for others. 

In the old testament in the scripture of Kings 20:36, there is a suggestion of how lions are fierce and one needs to protect against them. There is a law of potentiality in spiritual terms that indicates that there is pure consciousness but this needs protection. When our spirit is focused this can mean that we can fulfill our dream and the eternal possibility. Therefore, dreaming of cats can indicate being protected in life. 

Some people believe that a cat or kitten appearing in a dream represents independence and curiosity, along with mischievousness and unpredictability. Cats in the bible are symbols of love and loyalty from God representing friendship or companionship. In Proverbs 28:15 it states that the lion is a wicked one that rules over others. It is for this reason, that I believe biblically cats in dreams serve as a warning not to stress out too much.

What is the spiritual meaning of a cat dream?

Do you own cats? Are you a cat lover in real life? If you are having a dream about cats then there is much attached to the subconscious dream. From a spiritual symbolism, cats have been associated with the ability to see and hear things hidden. This may be due to the fact that cats have fantastic night vision, and this enables them to adapt to different light sources. The cat from a mythical perspective is connected to our own inner courage. In older dream dictionaries the interpretation of a cat dream is the requirement to try to understand what is in front of us. The dream of cats can also signify a balance between two people. There are many different qualities that a cat portrays. Therefore if you dream of a cat then this indicates that this is a strongly symbolic dream which is representative of your own independence, relaxation, the ability to see things in front of you, and finally the unconscious mind.

I'm sure you've heard of cats being super important In Ancient Egypt, cats were in fact sacred creatures due to their ability to protect humans from rats. It was believed that when a cat died, it would pass through the underworld and return with magical powers that could be used for healing and protection. And, I also read that cats were associated with Bastet, the goddess of joy and protector of homes—a perfect embodiment of our modern view of domestic felines. This importance was reflected in funerary practices where mummified animals—especially cats—were commonly found inside tombs throughout the country.

Cats also took on roles such as guardians against evil forces or representatives of luck or fortune (e..g., a black cat crossing your path is considered good luck). In this Google world, I feel we associate cats with independence but also companionship – they are both loyal companions yet fiercely independent at times – qualities that can be admired by almost anyone! They don’t protect us from disease-carrying rodents anymore but instead, provide comfort during difficult moments or stressful times. Don't forget that children love cats, especially cuddling kittens and if you see a child holding or petting a cat in the dream this can be associated with a valuable experience in the near future. Adopting a cat in a dream indicates that you will soon communicate and exchange ideas with others. It can also suggest hidden wisdom. 

What is the color of the cat in the dream?

I feel like the color of the cat in your dream often carries a significant message with it. White cats are usually associated with spiritual healing, as well as having intuitive qualities that you should pay attention to. Dreaming about a white cat could mean that you need to listen to your intuition and take some time for reflection and self-care practices, no matter how the white cat is featured in your dream.

Fur real (for real), dreaming of black cats can be interpreted to mean someone or something from the past is coming back into your life, or new opportunities are presenting themselves in some form and this symbol is super lucky (think of a black cat crossing a road). So keep an eye out! Black cats are also said to suggest creativity, resilience, mystery, and magic - and of course, black cats were associated with witches and luck. Ginger cat's can often be associated with an old flame and a tabby cat can mean you need to focus on the job at hand.

Dreaming about grey cats is linked with cautionary messages - it could be telling you not to act too impulsively when making decisions; instead, pause and really think things through before proceeding. I also think that grey cats might also represent a lack of trust between two people. It's worth noting that most interpretations surrounding dreams involving cats remain fairly universal - they suggest being watchful and conscious about who we let into our lives, especially since cats' characteristics are quite secret. 

What is the dream symbolism of cats?

There are many fairy tales in the folklore surrounding cats. We only need to look at the famous tale of Puss in boots and also the fairy book the colony of Cats There has been much mythical symbolism of cats which was extremely popular in Egyptian times. The cat is generally recognized as being connected to our own hidden control, wisdom, sexuality, and also good or bad luck. From a superstition perspective, a black cat is considered lucky, especially for crossing your path.

A cat’s eyes naturally shine in the dark due to the reflective layers. This is because of the retina which is known as the tapetum lucidum. This layer means that the cats have an extra 40% of effectiveness than our eyesight. Cats' eyes are great at night vision as the pupil's delight. As nocturnal creatures, cats' eyes in dreams indicate a wider viewpoint than other people.

It is very similar to starting a new one without any bitterness and disillusionment from the past. To house a stray cat in your dream indicates that you are letting your head all your heart.

To dream about a cat biting you is an interesting one that can oftentimes represent repressed fear or anger that is building up inside. It’s likely that there is something in your life that has been bothering you and this dream could be seen as a message from your subconscious to take action on it.

I’m sensing the bite represents those suppressed feelings and thoughts, while the tail of the cat may indicate how far away from what actually caused it you are. This dream could also mean that you’re not very well connected with who you are deep down, resulting in inner turmoil. I also believe dreams of cats biting you can be symbolic of something in your life-changing due to lack of attention or effort being put into it. Perhaps by now paying more attention to whatever is causing an inner disturbance, this dream may subside soon enough.

I know some people regard cats as symbols for bad luck or even death because they were often associated with witches during these periods throughout history; so if this were true in regards to your dream then maybe try getting rid of old thought patterns and negative habits – embrace new ways instead! I feel like dreaming about cats biting means that you have unresolved emotions which have been left unattended; however, focusing on resolving them can lead to better understanding yourself & taking control over your life - bit by bit (pun intended)!

What does it mean to dream of seeing an angry or aggressive cat in the dream?

We are radically delivered from tension and strife in life, and this dream is a sign that you need to move in with pressure and then create your own questions regarding direction. A negative cat dream can indicate an enemy that loves to create drama. I believe this dream means we do not have to live in fear of others, we know the outcome in life as we enter our internal knowing. A cat laying dead in a dream can indicate our own worries, and that we must trust in ourselves. There is an inward power within our soul and we can take authority over the negative aspects of our own mind. My advice, is from having a dream of a dying, dead cat can mean that you need to be anxious for nothing. Make your own goals and requests in life.

What does it mean to dream of a stray cat?

A stray cat in dreams represents feeling unwanted by someone. This dream is about self-power and knowledge of the self but also how you focus on rejection. This dream is about situations and circumstances to support your desires in life and possibly someone who is causing you challenges. This dream is about supporting nature. This dream is about the power within. A stray cat is urging you to experience silence and withdrawal from difficult situations in life, and this means that there will be some kind of rejection in life.  

When the stray cat appears in dreams this is not an arbitrary boudoir of tricks. To dream of multiple stray cats can signify that you are feeling neglected or alone in your life. If you can see city cats (maybe even in a different country) so the dream might be an indication that you feel like no one is looking out for you or you want someone to pay attention to you. It could also suggest feelings of insecurity and vulnerability as stray cats often have to fend for themselves with no support from others.

The symbolism of a stray cat can stretch far beyond loneliness and neglect though - it’s often associated with freedom, autonomy, and adaptability. You may be dreaming of a stray cat because deep down inside, something inside is telling you that it’s time for a change; to break free from your current situation and move on to something more fulfilling and exciting.

This dream is also related to trust issues – after all, if a wild animal wanders too close to us, we instinctively know not to get too attached as they tend to come into our lives temporarily before leaving again without warning. This could mean that the dream is reminding us not to put too much trust in any particular person or object at this time in our lives because it isn’t going stay around forever.

Also pay attention to the cat appearing in the dream - near your house. In your garden? On top of a fence? All these details can give clues as to what aspects of life this symbolic creature represents - are there certain boundaries that need changing? Decisions that require courage? Or moments where resilience will help bring success? Through all this, I knew that dreaming about strays indicates opportunity but also caution against putting yourself at risk – rather than running away headlong into unknown territory without regard for consequences we should take our time considering every possible outcome before making any major decisions regarding our future paths.

I once had a dream of a cat in the snow around my yard.

What does it mean to dream of an angry cat?

Symbolically speaking, as I have already outlined -- cats represent independence and being self-sufficient as they are aloof creatures who do their own thing and take care of themselves And, let’s not forget --- without any assistance from other animals or humans. In this sense, dreaming of an angry cat could suggest that you are feeling frustrated with being completely independent in life right now – perhaps feeling as if no help is coming and nobody understands how hard it is for you. This frustration could manifest itself through anger – hence the “angry” part of the dream – which may be directed at yourself or others around you due to feeling overwhelmed with all that needs doing in order for success to come about by yourself.

Other sorts of crazy dreams sometimes happen when something within us has been suppressed for too long - our true thoughts. And, so much so that it begins erupting out uncontrollably as anger when triggered (in this case seeing that angry cat)  This dream depends on how large and powerful the cat is during the dream. After reading Carl Jung's meaning I feel this dream is fueled by anxiety-related issues during our sleep as we are trying to just deal with the chaos in daily life.

What does it mean to dream of a cat clinging to you?

I went into a pet shop a few weeks ago and can remember seeing a black cat clinging to a lady, now in the dream space a cat clinging to you can be an incredibly powerful experience, as cats are known for their independence and strong-willed personalities. While some may see it as an ominous sign, dreaming of a cat clinging to you could actually indicate comfort and protection.

Let me ask you: are you struggling with something difficult – like a personal issue or problem stemming from work? If so, this dream could indicate that you are seeking comfort and safety in your life. The presence of the cat in your dream suggests that someone or something is giving you exactly what need in order to feel secure again. It could also mean that someone close to you cares about your well-being and will do whatever they can to help protect and support you during tough times.

If you don’t know the cat clinging (or it is someone else's cat) this dream implies some degree of vulnerability on the part of the one being held onto - which makes sense since when we reach out for emotional help from others.

If you’re a cat lover and dream of killing a cat this can be a nightmare dream.

These sorts of dreams could be just your subconscious mind conjuring up crazy images at night simply based on your experiences or desires in waking life.

Instead, I feel this represents repressed guilt about not loving someone enough while they were alive — people who feel lonely or broken might give into this kind of feeling in their nightmares more easily because they lack emotional support in their day-to-day lives.

Summary of a cat dream meaning

As I have already concluded in the opening paragraphs the cat represents wisdom, hidden visions, control, power and the ability to see clearly. This is a general dream interpretation. For the cat to be aggressive in the dream it can be connected to having difficulty with a negative female in waking life. The cat's significance can also be associated with your feminine side of life. Cats bring powerful energies that vibrate at higher frequencies. Their message is to overcome their lower tendencies before they can harness the power of spiritual energy. If a person doesn't have the maturity and self-confidence to embrace this energy, it can cause dreams of cats. Due to the spiritual high frequency, cat dreams can be the result of anxiety, phobias, extreme sensitivity, and self-doubt--especially in those with a delicate disposition. 

What does it mean to dream of cats inside your house?

It is not uncommon to dream of your own cat inside your house (especially if it is your own cat), but if you see cats (that you don’t know) in your house or that there is cats that are stays or really scary (aggressive) cats then this dream is about a rollercoaster ride of life. To see multiple cats inside your house can have many different meanings depending on the context. To figure out what it could mean just think about your current life situation and how a “cat” may relate to your current situations in life. In some cases, dreaming of cats could represent the comfort, protection, and independence that you need in life.

If you are currently undergoing a super weird time at the moment or a transition in life or trying to make an important decision, seeing cats in your house --- may indicate that you need more time to focus on yourself and find balance or peace before moving forward. 

As I have explained the symbolism of the cat's independent nature and ability to take care of itself may signify that now is the time for you to take action independently as well - without relying too much on other people's opinions or advice - and trust that you are capable enough to handle anything that comes along.

Seeing an old cat that you use to own (maybe has passed on) inside your house may suggest a welcoming abundance in life. It is my thought that cats often bring good luck and fortune within their presence, this interpretation may mean that there is something positive brewing just around the corner.

Do you know the term: “tuna sandwich” this suggests getting closer to another person who has unique qualities or opinions. Therefore it might be worth considering investing more energy into forming friendships that give each person room for development – not settling for anything less, seeing your old cat could just be that you are feeling a bit stressed out at the moment.

What does it mean to dream of holding a cat?

I believe after reading my dream books that dreaming of holding a cat can suggest protection, domesticity, and warmth. It likely reflects your desire for security and comfort in your life. Holding a cat that has passed over (maybe your old cat) could suggest that you feel like you need to be more protective of yourself or those around you. I also feel dreams about cats can indicate an upcoming risk that you will find difficult to resist or let go once it's been presented to you.

Seeing someone you know holding a cat in the dream world may also reflect feelings related to actual encounters with cats in the waking world. If this is the case, consider what kind of relationship you have had with animals before--whether it was pleasant or unpleasant—and think how that experience might be translating into your dreams now.

If there were other crazy things in your dream such as carrying a cat inside a carrier or creating some sort of home for them ( building them their own house), then these can add additional symbolic meaning to the message behind your dream —but all these things don’t really in my experience change the overall interpretation. A carrier could suggest preparedness for taking risks while still keeping safe; while constructing something in relation to “a house” for them could signify making space within oneself—creating room for others as well as protecting one's happiness on whatever terms are possible right now given one's circumstances at the present time 

What does it mean to dream of a cat jumping on you?

What does it mean to dream of cats following you around?

Tibetan Buddhism teaches that dreams can strive for spiritual significance but we must follow the rules of mindfulness.
