Okay, so this is kinda weird but lately I've been having tons of dreams of kittens and puppies. I think almost every night this week I've had a dream of one of them. In the beginning two I was trying to save just one kitten, then in another I was trying to save a litter of kittens, then in the next one it was a litter of puppies I was taking care of at a carnival, in another I was playing with a litter of puppies on the street, then in the dream I had just last night I was trying to find homes for both a litter of kittens and a litter of puppies.
Does anyone here have any kind of dream interpretation book or website? Do you know what these might symbolize? I usually don't pay much attention to symbology in dreams unless I've encountered the same thing a lot, like in the past week.

what stood out to me more than that the dream involved puppies or kittens, was what you were doing with them. you were protecting them, you were saving them, you were playing with them, ...but then the last one kinda kills the theme I was going with; you were giving them away. I'm wondering about that last one, were you making sure they were going to good homes, or just kinda giving them to whoever wanted them?
...the vibe I get from it, is that you feel like you have to protect something, the dream just changed it to puppies or kittens, so that you would know the dreams were connected...but the puppies or kittens themselves may hold an inner meaning too. but one of the thoughts I had was...maybe you feel like you have to protect your inner child from something. perhaps just ask yourself what you feel like you have to protect?
When you look up your dreams, look up rescue or protect...and if it were me, I'd look up carnival too, since that's such an out-of-place place...maybe street as well.
Actually Shaelyn, that's a good point, I was trying to find the kittens and puppies homes because I wanted them to be safe and sheltered; if I didn't find them homes, then they were going to be killed in some way I think, so in the end it was me trying to protect them. I'll examine the dreams more closely from those angles, I don't think much is happening in terms of my inner child but I did get into a very upsetting encounter with a friend earlier and some old scars came to the surface, so maybe it relates to that in some way. Good idea! ^_^
THe puppies and kittens I think represent male and female people. The areas you were dealing with in the dreams corespond to where you may relate to these people. The kittens and puppies might also be representing kittens and puppies, and your feelings in the dream indicate you take a caring and loving attitude Or however you descibe it attitude towards raising these animals. This is a good thing as it sees you in freedom, and not caged up. I see it that when you have many animals when you were just trying to save one kitten means that the kitten is in a higher dimension. Likewise a litter of puppies means a puppy in a higher dimension. [Perhaps you could focus on a single puppy as you have not mentioned one that appeared in your dream.]
