What does a cat mean to you? Do you like cats at all? Or are you just indifferent to them? What feeling goes through you every time you see a cat? Do you automatically feel an instant attraction?

The meaning of a cat to you will help you to accurately identify what your dream means.

Let me give you an example of a cat dream I had.

The dream:

I dreamed a dream during the night sometime in November 2009. In my dream, I was in the backyard of a house. Night was approaching. I found myself swimming with a cat in the lake behind the house. Whose house was this, I don’t know. But I swam in the lake with the cat by my side.

Being human, I can obviously swim much faster than a cat. So I swam at my usual pace, but in no time, a certain distance had been created between me and this cat. I didn’t realize this right away. When I looked back to see how the cat was doing, the cat had sunk to the bottom of the lake.

I hurried back to where the cat was and when I got there the cat was at the bottom of the lake with eyes wide open as if horrified. He wasn’t fighting like one would expect a drowned cat to, he just stood there frozen with his eyes staring at me. I looked at this cat and wondered if I should dive to the bottom of the lake to get it out.

But as I pondered this, I thought to myself, why bother? I am not a cat person at all. I am not attracted to them. I consider them creepy creatures. They are lazy and only care about themselves, unlike dogs. I’m more of a dog person. But in this dream, I was dreaming of a cat, an animal that I just didn’t care about.

After a few moments of reflection, I decided to leave the cat at the bottom of the lake and then I swam. However, coming out of the lake, I couldn’t get away from it. I was immersed in doubts. I stayed there, by the lake, wrapped in thoughts. He still couldn’t stop thinking about the cat. I wondered if leaving it alone was the right decision. Should I come back for him and perform CPR? How ridiculous would that be? Do I even know how to perform CPR on an animal?

It was while contemplating my next move that I woke up from my dream.


When I woke up from this dream, I was quite confused. I woke up to a constant heartbeat, unlike on other occasions when I had had dreams that predicted sinister events. I was curious to know what this particular dream could mean. It puzzled me, but I didn’t care.

A few weeks after the dream, my girlfriend and I abruptly broke up. Now this was an emotionally tumultuous period in my life. I loved the girl very much, but deep in my heart, I always knew that she was not the type of woman that a man like me should take seriously.

However, the breakup was devastating. The emotional pain I felt was tremendously horrendous. My soul was troubled. I struggled with many schemes unworthy of some form of reconciliation and although I implemented some of them, none of them brought me closer to my heart’s desire. Hands heavy with tears, I reached out hoping for a better tomorrow, but it never came, at least not as fast as I wanted.

However, as time passed, I began to realize it. He knew he was better off without this girl due to certain questionable characteristics he had that he had tried to sweep under the rug. She loved to party, she never liked to stay in the house, she was bored quite easily, she was always on the go, she cared only about herself (a classic cat trait), she was very combative and did not seem to understand fights between couples. . it must be short-lived. Before the breakup, I ignored all of these glaring signals for reasons that I’m sure some of you can imagine. He was emotionally attached.

A few months after the breakup. We got back together. But like water and oil, we parted again shortly after. He loved the girl, this I will not deny. However, their behavioral characteristics simply did not lead to a harmonious relationship. Therefore, in the interests of my happiness, as opposed to the incessant downpour of poignant melancholic feelings that I had been struggling with, I chose to leave her alone … forever!

It was painful and I doubted the decision, but I knew it was for the greater good. Even if she begged me to return her, I might consider the idea, but I would eventually refuse to promote her to be a permanent companion. Contrary to popular belief, I know that people don’t change. They can alter certain characteristics of themselves, but their general personality, moral values ​​and beliefs will remain the same.

Now let’s look at the symbols in this dream.


Lake = The lake in this dream is the relationship between my ex and me.

Swimming = The act of swimming in this lake denotes her and my attempts to have a relationship together.

Capacity = The fact that I swam faster than her to the point where she lagged behind meant that in this relationship, I had more to give than she did. She did not have the ability to be the same caring, considerate, and selfless person as me.

In other words, in the lake of relationships we were in, I swam and went further than the cat because, as in the real-life relationship of which the dream was an allegory, I was the most powerful. I was the one with the ability to do the most.

In the dream, I swam with a purpose. Although I didn’t have a destination in mind, I swam as if I did. He didn’t, so he gave up when he couldn’t keep up with my dedication to the relationship.


Look, if you have a dream about a dead cat, stop thinking that dream dictionaries can help you. As you can see from the situation above, a prophetic dream is always unique to the person who had it. Always remember that. What does a cat mean to you? Answer that question and you will discover the mystery of your dream!
