I had a very soft dream with my cat in it. What surprise me is that I barely ever remember my dreams. In this one, my mom was there and I was sitting on a chair. Junior, my cat, was next to me and I was sad and heartbroken to see him because I felt like I was gonna lose him again. My mom said it was alright and to look at Junior. He was chasing some soft coton balls floating in the air and every now and then resting his front paws on my leg to catch his breath. He seemed healthy and happy. As soon as his paws touched my leg I felt my heart lighter and even felt like smiling. There was also 2 other cats in the background that I could not recognize but it was not my Marley. My mom seemed different as if it was not her my someone taking her form. Not sure what to think. Maybe its me processing the lost? Anyone had a dream like that they wanna share?

I haven't had such a dream. Like you, I almost never remember any.  I do think dreams can be our souls working through and trying to process the loss. 

I'm so glad it wasn't a bad dream and that in your dream he was happy and healthy and playing. That sounds very sweet.

Avy, I'm sorry for your loss. It's nice to have a little bit of something that brings a smile. Take care of you.

I wish that you can have such a dream Catie. Thank you for your answer. I am glad it was not a nightmare as well. There is only so much my heart can take with both my mom and dad sick. We are waiting for medical follow up but they both have what is suspected to be tumors. Maybe Junior will guard them as well and be our angel thru this process. Cant spend a day without crying but maybe this one will be a little better thanks to him.

Oh my word! Both parents? That's incredibly hard on you and on your whole family. I hate that so much has piled on. 

Miserable as it is to do, cry all that you need to. It's the most honest and natural reaction I can imagine, to everything that's happening. 

Praying for you all and sending hugs.

I know it sounds incredible for me as well. Specially since I learned about my mom the same day I found my Junior died. Noth8ng is confirmed yet so I am keeping my spirit up and hoping for the best. Dad operation is at the end of the month. Still waiting for news from specialist for my mom. Thank you for your kind words. Hugs

You have a lot to sort out there, Avy. I have had a couple of those "pile-ons" and it's difficult to focus on what you need to. I was only able to plod through by telling myself to just take it one minute at a time. Check in here anytime you need to, someone's always around.

Thank you for your kind words Lamont and MissingScooty. I am so glad that this forum is here. I feel much less alone and close to all of you, even if we never met for real. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Hugs and love to all.

Yes I too am grateful for this forum. I could not find an"in person" pet loss group. I do belong to an in person grief support group for human loss. When I mentioned my dog passing, they all were very understanding, fortunately. Because it actually makes dealing with the other human losses, that much harder. One woman said "It IS another loss/death"

I have been holding on to my dreams in the past two days and it seems like it is the only thing holding me together, with my other cat Marley. Had a huge breakdown earlier. Telling my mom I didn’t want Junior to be gone. More calm now. Seems like my body is not holding well ( red patches on my arm). Closing my eyes and seeing my baby kitty makes me feel a little less sad. Wishing everyone a better day tomorrow.
