The devouring female

I've had a series of dreams over the years about cats. I'm always fighting the cats. I don't think I've ever had a dream with a cat in it who wasn't trying to chew me apart.

I once had a dream in which a cat attacked me and latched onto my knee with claws and teeth. I reached down and grabbed it by the neck and yanked it out, expecting it to hurt like crazy. Thanks to the magic of dreams, however, it didn't hurt at all. I then drop-kicked the cat about 50 feet.

Most recently, I had a dream in which a cat was attacking me so I grabbed it by the head with both hands and spun it around and around and threw it, but it ended up landing fairly near me, which made me sit up instantly in bed, and wake up, so it wouldn't attack my head.

Don't ask me why I have these dreams. I don't hate cats. I kind of like them, actually. I was never one of those kids who made himself feel tough in junior high by making up lies about all the horrible ways he tortured cats (I had other ways of making myself feel tough, like playing Oberon, king of the fairies, in Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and being the best hacky sacker out of any of my friends).

Anyway, my point is, lay off, I'm not a cat-hater. I also don't hate guys who look like Chuck Norris, but that didn't stop me from having a dream in which I stabbed one through the head with a steak knife.

I decided that maybe the internet could help me interpret my dreams. So I found this site and looked up "cat." Here's what it says:

To see a cat in your dream, signifies much misfortune, treachery, and bad luck [oh crap]. However, for the cat lover, cats signifies an independent spirit, feminine sexuality, creativity, and power [well, I wouldn't consider myself a cat lover, so that can't be it. Especially that bit about feminine sexuality]. If the cat is aggressive, then it suggests that you are having problems with the feminine aspect of yourself [uhh ... okay? What does that mean? Should I start frequenting scrapbooking stores? Reading those vampire books?]. If you see a cat with no tail, then it signifies a lost of independence and lack of autonomy [whew! My foe-cats have tails, which means at least my independence and autonomy are in tact].

And here was the best part:
To dream that a cat is biting you, symbolizes the devouring female [I don't know what that means, but it can't be good.]

Yes, all females do go to scrapbook stores. Where would we be without die-cuts and glittered pens? Just where, I ask?

HAHAH Devin, I'm sorry you're having dreams about man-eating kitty's. It sounds like an even cooler version of Pet Semitary (<--- that's how they spell it, I'm not an idiot). Maybe you should wait until one of them turns into a giant bagpipe then stuff a pacifier in its air hole. I think I've seen that work somewhere...

I have the same dreams. the cat ALWAYS finds its way back to attack me and its always a kitten.. its seems like a scary part of our personality, do we have alterior motives to our actions? Thats what I am leaning towards... controlling other people ? I continue to search for the answers ah
