i dreamed a friend came over with her dog and i introduced him to angus who ran behind the toilet and hid, but came out and snuggled with the dog a few minutes later. i miss my brave boy so much and it's comforting to dream about him.
"They" say that when you dream of a pet or person who has passed that it is a visit from that pet or person, letting you know they are alright and not to be sad for them. I dream of my father from time to time (he died in 2001) and I have rare dreams of an 18 year old Siamese I lost in 2003 - each time, I wake just somehow knowing it was a visit. After dreaming of the cat, it is almost as if I can still feel the warm spot she was in even though she's not there.
