In the one really bad dream that I remember, we had moved into a really nice house. But, in a short length of time (like 2 weeks or so) It was messed up and nasty. In the living room, someone had dumped Oreos in the floor in a corner. I had known they were there and the mess needed cleaned up, but I ignored it. Then the rats came. There was a swarm of black rats all over the living room, eating the Oreos, running around nipping my toes. I was in a panic and I ran to you for help. Your answer was to borrow a cat. You brought in a big, Siamese cat that was mean—to everyone except the rats! It sat down in the middle of the rats and guarded them from us. Every time we try to go near it , it hisses and arches it’s back. We were standing there helpless. You shrugged it off and said, “Oh well. They’ll just have to stay. I tried.” I was furious with you because I wanted you to fix the problem—and furious with me because I just didn’t pick up the Oreos. I looked up a couple of things online in a dream dictionary.
To see a rat in your dream, signifies feelings of doubts, greed, guilt, unworthiness and envy. You are keeping something to yourself that is eating you up inside. Or you have done something that you are not proud of. Alternatively, a rat denotes repulsion, decay, dirtiness, and even death. The dream may also be a pun on someone who is a rat. Are you feeling betrayed?
In particular, to see a black rat, represents deceit and covert activities. If you see a white rat in your dream, then it means that you will receive help from an unexpected source.
To dream that a rat is biting your feet, is analogous to the rat race that you are experiencing in your waking life.
To see a cat in your dream, symbolizes an independent spirit, feminine sexuality, creativity, and power. It also represents misfortune and bad luck. The dream symbol has different significance depending on whether you are a cat lover or not. The cat could indicate that someone is being deceitful or treacherous toward you. If the cat is aggressive, then it suggests that you are having problems with the feminine aspect of yourself. If you are afraid of the cat in your dream, then it suggests that you are fearful of the feminine. The dream may be a metaphor for “cattiness” or someone who is “catty” and malicious. If you see a cat with no tail, then it signifies a loss of independence and lack of autonomy.
To dream that a cat is biting you, symbolizes the devouring female. Perhaps you are taking and taking without giving. You may be expressing some fear or frustration especially when something is not going as planned.
To dream that a cat is scratching you, suggests that you are feeling threatened.
To see a black cat in your dream, indicates that you are experiencing some fear in using your psychic abilities and believing in your intuition. You may erroneously associate the black cat with evil, destruction, and bad luck. In particular, if the black cat is biting, clawing or attacking you, then the dream means that you must acknowledge what your intuition is trying to tell you. You can no longer ignore it. Do not be afraid to face the situation. If you see a white cat, then it denotes difficult times.
To dream that a cat killed a spider, suggests that you are expressing your femininity in a seductive and cunning manner rather than in an overtly and almost destructive way.
