Returned in a Dream

For the last two nights, I've remembered little of my dreams, except that they have been brooding and sad. In one, for example, I dreamt I was doing a terrible job of taking care of my baby. It's not hard to figure out which furry child that was actually about.



But this afternoon, with the window open to let in the warm October breeze, Kung Fu Panda and I took a nap. Our kitty, Luke, slept on the dog bed.

I got up to use the bathroom and ran into Una. She'd always liked to lie on the tile floor, bunching the rug up to make a pillow. At first, she seemed a little confused, but then I greeted her warmly. "I'm so glad to see you," I told her, and buried my face in her neck.

With the bouncy energy of a puppy, she bounded with me back into the bedroom, popped her front legs up on the small dresser, and gobbled down all the cat's food.

Then I woke up.

Moral:
Beloved pets never truly leave.

I could actually almost feel her fur in this dream. Hopefully, it will only be the first of many dreamtime encounters with her.

I still dream of my dogs so I think Una will visit you again. Hugs my friend.

Thanks. Una was such a part of the texture of my life. It's nice to think maybe at least I'll see her in the Dreamworld. But even if it was a farewell, it was good to see her full of vigor.

It was such a relief to see her, returned to health.

She'll come back again. I'm glad you connected in dreamtime. I had the same feelings of relief when I saw Jupiter and Duchess in dreams.

Una is whole, healthy and vibrant. Yeah, she'll be back. :-)

She hasn't had energy like that for a long time. It was good to see her. I even stayed in the dream despite realizing it was one.

I have dreams about my most special cats and Sunset my retired guide dog. She is happy and healthy again which makes me happy.
