The biggest cat woke me up at three a.m. to feed him. I automatically did it and then went back to sleep. This morning I had a very strange dream. I was living with a large group of people in a big house. They were all messy and didn't pick up after themselves. I was exhausted from going around picking up after them. My body was aching all over.
There was a tough biker who put on a band aid and dropped the paper from it on the floor. I got down on the floor to pick it up and he became very angry at me. He yelled, Stop being a victim! Then I woke up, aching all over, surrounded by all the restless animals. I am guessing that the biker was the big cat who insisted that I get up at three a.m. to feed him.
I decided not to get up tonight, no matter what he does. I have to stand up to all these animals. I would take Chico home to have one less animal to take care of but these are his friends. He would be lonely back there. Maybe if I learn to stand up to needy and bossy animals I could next learn to stand up to needy and bossy people. It is a life lesson I haven't quite learned yet.
