I Am A Cat
Acting like a Cat
I had a dream that I was pretending to be a cat by meowing and being on all fours. I was trying to get adopted so that I could save myself and others from something. People were convinced I was an actual cat, even though I clearly looked human.
Main Life Issues:
Adjusting to college life (age 19), rejection, lonely, overwhelmed by work, pent up feelings.
Something actively seeks what it needs.
A cat: A pet, a loving creature; can be a symbol of independence, resourcefulness, playfulness.
Pretending: Taking on a role; practicing being something else.
Meowing: Getting attention, communicating.
Trying to get adopted: Wanting a home; in this case, wanting to feel loved, craving attention, wanting to feel more at home at college.
A convincing act: Someone succeeds in self-expression; suggests dreamer will succeed if reaches out to others.
I was a cat: Success representing oneself as one wants to.
What the dream Means:
When a kitty needs something, it gets your attention. Whether a cat craves love, food, or wants to play, it goes out of its way to let you know. It meows, rubs against you, jumps in your lap etc. This dream is a metaphor for wanting to be loved and wanting to feel more at home in college.
The dream is telling you to take the initiative to find love, fun and nurturing. Express how you feel, join groups and activities, and take the time to make friends and interact with them. And if college still feels overwhelming, take advantage of a session or two of free counseling most colleges offer; it can feel good and acquiring a few extra coping tools is a smart thing to do.
The t.v. version of college life can portray fun and games, but many students go through college in a quiet or lonely way. Good students sometimes make the mistake of concentrating TOO much on their studies without balancing their lives with friends, activities, and fun.
Bottom Line: The dream points out that you have the power to get what you need and want. Get out there, communicate, and create a life that is balanced and fulfilling. Years from now, you will have a good career and discover that most employers don’t care whether you had an A or B average; they care that you do your work well and get along with others. In fact, having fun and leading a balanced life will improve your studies, so go for it.
