I just dreamt that one of my cats had undergone a strange metamorphosis and reverted to infancy - but instead of becoming a kitten, it became an egg.
The egg soon hatched into a small, black chick, which rapidly grew into a horrifying, eyeless hybrid of cat and bird. It ran blindly around my house, and wouldn’t stop shrieking. I couldn’t get a good look at it because it was nighttime and none of the light switches worked when I tried them, and it bit my hands whenever I approached.
That’s not the weird part. The weird part is that dream-me wasn’t frightened by any of this. The whole time this was going on, all I could think was:
“What does this thing eat? Am I supposed to keep it warm? Is this behaviour normal? It’s incredibly irresponsible of me to be so unprepared for this - I should never have been allowed to own a pet.”
If I believed in dream analysis, you could probably have a field day with this one.
