She used to often have nightmares (or so we assumed) which would result in her waking up suddenly, crying out in a very upset way, jumping up, and running to the nearest trusted person for comfort. I've never seen another cat do this.
Then, tonight, I was curled up on the futon couch, reading, and Cobweb was curled up beside my hip, sound asleep ... and suddenly she started making these funny noises. At first I was going to wake her up, assuming that she was having another nightmare, but then I listened and watched her, and I realized that she was making chewing motions and licking motions and she was making her happy little eating-good-food grunting noises. She was dreaming about eating! Ha! So I left her to her little kitty fantasies about Friskies and lunch meat and the catnip-flavored cat treats that are her favorite. And she just lay there beside me, munching and smacking her lips and having a fine imaginary dining experience for the next 5 minutes or so before she lapsed back into her quieter sleep.
She cracks me up.
