I have dreams like that all the time and have had them all my life.

Two nights ago: DH and I had gone to a cat show or were watching one on television (unclear which.) He is a cat lover, and we haven't had any for a few years because I don't want a litter box.
At this show, there are of course many different and exotic cats. One they displayed were miniature cats, about 4 inches long without the tail, and adorable. They explained that they were good pets for people who didn't want to worry about the high costs of feeding a cat or didn't have a large house/apartment!

That is such a cool dream! I'll bet the little miniature cats were adorable, too.

Those are commonly called kittens. Maybe your mind is saying it really is time for DH to get his cat after several years with no litter box for you.... kittens smell pretty good...

I dreamed that I was retired and I didn't have to get up at 4 am and drive to work and put up with all the political bs and then I woke up and found out that...

Dreams can come true, it can happen to you
If you're young at heart.

Aw! That is such a sweet sentiment. Here's the song for you

I dreamed last night that I was securing a bunch of really nice boats to docks in the midst of a hurricane. There were chest high waves washing over the docks and I was handling great big coils of line trying to get a big sailboat, like an 85 footer, tied down.
Very exciting and was one of those "competence" dreams where, like Gumby's, I was doing something well that I normally wouldn't.
Deflated cats. Love it!

I have never had any diabolical dreams along the lines of what you describe. Not that I can remember.

Last night I dreamed that I had a shower like Johnnie36's built. Guess I can really say that is my dream shower, now.

Not too diabolical - - I was making sure I had any/all the necessary permits in order, and they were.
