… do we dream … (Purdy, Symes and Wright - part 13)


Peter Hunter



I heard my humans once discussing this, this very stupid question. Do cats dream?

What on earth do they think we do in the long hours when we sleep or at least close our eyes pretending to sleep whilst our subconscious is completely aware of even the slightest sound or smell around us?

Symes has just jumped up beside his dad - howling pitifully - like he is in pain…

  … but it's only a loud irritation saying 'I'm hungry - feed me…'

do we cats dream, and if so - what do we dream about?

Hunting - cream, particularly ice cream - tuna on a bad day - scrambled eggs if you are Purdey and of course if you are her, especially cheese - particularly old Longley's vintage cheddar…

… soft cushions, high places from which to look down on you humans, roaring log fires to sleep in front of in winter - to be left in peace most of the time and at others to be stoked and pampered…

And Wright dreams of Molly - his girlfriend next door…

… whilst Symes's fantasy is that he is an even bigger feline than he really is - at least a leopard - and sometimes when the moon is full…

… a great tiger prowling through the rushes and elephant grass…

do cats dream? Don't be a silly human…
