A 38-year-old woman dreamt she was a thin and starving cat. She saw a dead cat. She as a cat began to eat the dead animal. There was hardly any meat on the bones.
Family pets often represent affectionate feelings with cats being associated with female affection and dogs being associated with male affection. The dream indicated that she was affection starved. Eating in dreams often means the person is trying to make something a part of them. Meat, in this dream, represents substantial feminine affection (since it was meat from a cat).
Eating in a dream often signals that the dreamer is trying to incorporate a quality of character. Her husband paid little attention to her. Her eating a cat as a cat indicated that she was trying to incorporate affection into herself.
It was not working very well because there was almost no meat to it. This dream was mainly about self-love. It can be, as Whitney Houston sang, “the greatest love of all.”
