Dish Kitty


While I was away travelling I had a dream that I had left my cat in the kitchen sink with all the dirty dishes and dirty dish water!! She looked like such a sad, soaked kitty sitting there and I felt sooo guilty for forgetting that she was there and leaving her in there for goodness knows how long!!

Dream notes and associations

My partner and I travelled Europe for the last 3 months. We left our gorgeous cat in very good hands with a house/cat sitter.

My feelings throughout the dream and on awakening

GUILT!! Both during and on waking.
Made me miss my cat more so on waking!

Hi Lady_Indigo, it’s always hard leaving pets behind and guilt can often surface through our dreams. However since your cat has been left in good care, just check in with yourself to make sure you aren’t neglecting anything else other than kitty in your life at the moment. Dream animals can symbolise our primal natures and cats in particular relate to femininity, nurturing and self care.

Could it be Lady_Indigo that you are sinking into your own emotional state? Perhaps your agility, independence or curiosity needs some cleaning up? Just an idea….
