If Only in My Dreams

A few weeks ago, I dreamed about Tungsten. I think it was the first time any of my cats has shown up in my dreams. That surprises me, considering the amount of my life that they occupy, though it may be that my subconscious sees my dreams as my one avenue of escape from them!

Anyway, in my dream, I was in some sort of work-place - not my real work-place - in a cubicle that was carpeted. Tungsten came walking across the open back of the space, not toward me but nonetheless approaching me. I picked her up and was very glad to see her. I don’t think in my dream she had died, but I know I hadn’t seen her for a long time. In reality, her left eye was damaged a bit; there was a tear in the pupil or something similar. It never seemed to bother her in the slightest, either in terms of comfort or vision. In my dream, however, her left eye was permanently almost closed. It’s funny how dreams interpret real-life. I don’t recall anything from the dream after that. Perhaps there was no more. But in my dream, I was very happy to see the orange one again.

On Saturday the 26th, it was six months since she died.

  1. Very bittersweet.

    Maybe she came to let you know she's okay, in spite of the eye thing!

    Lots of purrs and gentle headbutts.

  4. I have had only one dream that I remember of Abby. When I awoke suddenly and remembered it I was astonished. I had seen her and held her. It was only a dream but it 'real', so real. Those six months have gone by so quickly, as my 2 years have. At the time it did not appear as if time would move, but it did, and now, well things are different, but the same. I no longer reach for her as new routines have happened but my heart still aches for her.

    1. Yes, our routines adapt quite quickly, don't they? Our hearts don't.

  7. I agree with the other comments. I feel sure she visited you and the dream was her way of letting you know.

  8. She's thinking about you. Her life energy was with you. Doesn't it feel wonderful to have them with us again if only for a brief moment in time. She'll visit you again, I'm sure. For a split second, out of the corner of your eye, she'll be there.

  10. I generally do not dream about my cats until after they have passed. I have dreamed of kittens, but rarely specific kittens.. just foster kittens in general.. new ones i've never fostered before.
