I know this is silly, but....

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am wondering if anyone else has dreamed about their Rainbow Bridge cat. I got up this am about 4:15 for a few minutes. When I went back to bed, I dreamed about one of my cats I still have (Speedboat) and my Rainbow Bridge cat, Max, who passed in July. These two cats were soulmates. Anyway, I was holding Max and loving him. I was at a friends house and both of my cats were with me. I don't know why. But I was so disappointed when I woke up and realized it was only a dream. I wanted to cry when I knew it was a dream. It seemed so real and it still does when I think about it. I know it is silly because I should be over him, but I miss him so bad. And I had been really hoping and asking the Lord to let me see Max again. He was the love of my life.

That's not silly at all!, I believe that our loved ones are able to come and visit us in our dreams..humans and animals.

It's not silly. I dream about Sunni all the time. Sometimes I even think I still see her here, out of the corner of my eye.

That is not silly at all! It's happened to me too... About a cat we had growing up
You're not alone.

oh bugaboo you hoped and prayed you would see max again and your wish came true,you know in your heart that it was for real,maybe not physical,but he came to you in spirit ,which is the only way he can communicate with you now.
i know how upsetting it can be when you wake and they are not there,again,but you will see him again.

my dog was a yorkshire terrier,she was 8wks when diagnosed with a enlarged heart,and wasnt expected to live more than two years,her spinal chord was trapped in her neck which meant she had to undergo a operation on her spine,she kept having a prolapse on her rear,and had 4 operations to correct it.she suffered a stroke later in life and still lived to a ripe old age of 11,and she only weighed 1.8 pounds.i felt she was so vulnerable when she died i constantly thought about her.then her mother died 1 week later,i think she wanted her mum,anyway she came to see me in a dream one night and she was so happy.

I know it was real because when she came to me she didnt limp anymore she could run and jump again,and she had her tail again,which had been docked when she was about 3 days old.

so treasure your dream bugaboo,it was real,and it will happen again.

When my family had to put my first cat;Phil, to sleep, that night I hallucinated he was sleeping on my floor next to my bed, and we heard a meow in our house, even though he was no longer alive, and there were no cats outside. I still think about him to this day, he's probably eating alot because he loved his food.

I've done that a lot! I still do sometimes. I'm glad, because I miss my Sassy, and I get a chance to "see her" again.

I dream about Lola pretty regularly I don't think it's silly at all! In fact, I'm happy that I get to spend some time with her, even if it's not in my waking life.

Me too. I haven't had a dream like that in awhile, but when I do I usually enjoy it and maybe shed a tear or two afterwards though. I do miss my Penny.
But I get over it a little bit - she's a Rainbow Bridge, peaceful & happy

I have dreams all the time about my childhood kitty Woody - Dreams where he is still alive even though I knew he had already died.

I think its their way of coming back to us to say they are ok.

I don't think It's silly. Sometimes I feel that I can hear my late cats meowing for me. I feel that part of them stays with us no matter what.

That's not silly at all! I never had a cat that has passed because Tiger is my first...but my boyfriend had one he grew up with that we had to put down. I dream about him sometimes too. I also dream about something happening to Tiger or my family, and after I wake up it makes me feel strange for several days. I hate dreaming about friends and family that have passed because it seems so real and then realizing the dissapointment when you wake up.

That's what I believe, too, so I'm not surprised that he came to visit you.

I seldom remember dreams, but I do remember one several weeks after Samantha disappeared, when Gryphon, who had died three years before, came to let me know Sam wasn't coming back -- not in so many words, but his message was clear.

You've been given a gift. Try not to be sad about it, but treasure the few stolen moments you had with him in your dreams. Maybe he'll visit you again!

Thank you all for the encouraging words. I am glad to know maybe it is not as silly as I thought. I feel like it was a special gift and I hope it does happen again. I was sad, but only because it was a dream. I was so disappointed when I woke and realized Max was no longer in my arms. Us cat lovers are really a different breed, aren't we?
