The cats are up to something

Posted on 2006.06.20 at 13:54
Last night I had another dream with a bunch of cats. There were only five or six this time, not a thousand, but this nonetheless is further confirmation of my suspicion that the cats are up to something. And it's not only happening to me. Jenn recently reported a dream of many cats, as have others. See that one issue of Sandman.

The cats are invading our dreams.

Maybe large quantities of cats are something people just dream about, some ancient archytypal symbol, but I don't think so. Looking through my library of such things, I can find no reference to the phenomena, except (and this is really stretching) for the idea that cats have nine lives. There is more research to be done, but it's looking to me like this a relatively recent phenomena, possibly first evidenced in The Dreamquest of Unknown Kadath.

All of which begs the question, what are the cats up to? I have a feeling it's not good, as Jenn's cat Midas is currently walking on my keyboard trying to prevent me from completing this post. But I need more data.

So please, if you have any dreams, hallucinations, obsessions, etc. involving large quantities of cats, kindly describe them and send them to me. If you have three cats, and your dream is about your three cats, then it's probably nothing out of the ordinary. But if you see two or more cats that are unfamiliar, I'd like to know about it. Maybe we can figure out what they want and make peace with them before we're all being batted around like mice by colossal feline god-kings.

what about invisible spy monsters in abandoned buildings and giant granite tyranosaurs chasing my boat through the water?

That's only relevant if the invisible spy monsters are secretly cats. I can't be responsible for figuring out every dream creature. But if the giant granite tyranosaurs persist, then maybe someone should investigate.

and could this have something to do with the catfood I found in my bookbag this morning?

Now that might be relevant. Have you ruled out all rational explanation?

Well, I'd assumed it was barf, but it was completely dry and showed no sign of being chewed. It must be either conspiracy or the supernatural.

Hmm. This sounds like the work of the Jesuits. Trying to frame the cats, no doubt.

It's always the Jesuits...Damn them! Damn them all!

Yeah. I thought the Jesuits were too busy breeding lake monsters to go around planting catfood in people's bookbags, but apparently I was wrong.

Sunday afternoon, on the SciFi channel, both "Sabretooth" and "Attack of the Sabretooth" were playing. Coincidence? Read the book.

Hmm. Maybe the cats are trying to trick us into using cloning to bring back the Smilodon, who could indeed bat us around like mice.
