I have had some freaky dreams lately. About a week ago I dreamed that we got rid of Buddah to make Max happy, and then got a dog because Max wanted one...but then we realized what a mistake that was and had a spastic freak out trying to get him back. We found him in a cage with about 50 other black cats that all looked so much alike that in order to figure out which one he was I kept picking them up and holding them close, stroking the length of their tails.

Buddah has a really long tail, which is how I finally found him. And when I did, he grabbed onto me like a toddler and just wailed. It was sad and mournful and a horrible, horrible cry that still makes me feel guilty just thinking about it.

For the record, Max can be as pissy about Buddah as he wants. Buddah stays.

Last night I had another cat dream, but this time I wasn't getting ride of either of them...I was taking custody of cats from the cat blogosphere. It was a house trashing party extraordinaire, but I could not grasp why these kitties what are such good friends online didn't seem to get along very well when thrown together. I kept shouting  "But you LIKE each other?" over the din of hissing and growling, and remained upset and confused until some of the cats who have long since left for the Bridge showed up to calm everyone down.

There was no mistake...those kitties were judging me. I still don't know why I took custody of so many cats, or why I expected them to all actually get along, but the Bridge Kitties made it pretty clear: I'm a moron.

I'm almost afraid of what my brain will cough up next...

Stress dreams are the worst! You go to sleep to rest not get more stressed out! Give Buddah a hug for us too!

Years ago, my husband dreamed that I traded Mohawk for a sheep. Something about making money from the wool. We were living in an apartment at the time which makes it all the weirder. We turned it into a joke. I put a beanie baby sheep on his pillow when he returned from a business trip. He asked what the sheep was for, and I said, I didn't know, but hadn't seen Mohawk for days (not true).

So, Max still hasn't forgiven Buddah for trying to ride him like a horse when Buddah was a kitten?

The Woman said she has never dreamed about the CB before though she often dreams of loosing one of us in some weird place. Last night she dreamed she was looking out the window of a new house and saw a bunch of joggers in chicken suits. Now she realized even in the dream it was weird but she's wondering what the deeper meaning of that is...

What do you eat before you go to bed?

In my cat dreams, I am running for my life and trying to hide from who ever is chasing me, but I am trying to keep my cats with me!

Admit it, we have weird dreams!
