They do dream things true

Cobweb is the dreamingest cat ever.

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.
