Weird beyond belief

As you all know, we just lost Houdini to a long illness.  Well, last night I had a dream that an orange and white kitty with long hair, about a year old, and with a cold in its eye was looking for me.  (Probably because I drank Nyquil before bed.)  So, I woke up this morning and the dream was still so vivid...

Now, I'm not a religious person and try to see the practical side of things but this has really got me thinking...

My 'insider' at the local pound (who knew NOTHING about 'the dream') just called to give my mom the weekly rundown of pets on the execution list.  Guess what?  A 1-2 year old  long-haired orange male (neutered) tiger striped cat was just brought in yesterday.  He has until Friday.

It's so soon.  I don't know what to do. 

Just a strange coincidence?  :-\

Puzzled and mourning,
MDV

I tend to think that some dreams have meaning. Maybe this is one of those dreams.

Houdini wouldn't want you to withhold love from a new kitty because it was so soon. However, if you feel at all that you would be resentful of the new boy or under extreme amounts of guilt because of the time span, I would consider that too.

Although.. I'm not at all biased regarding orange tabbies  :)>>>

wow, that is something! orange babies are lots of fun and i agree with thinking things "practically" but humm....

i think cats can "send" us, or inspire us, in some ways to help us come to terms with loss and sadness. when cougi died, our other cat, Mimi, who wasn't "friends" with cougi at all went into morning and she still spends a lot of time with cougi's things (sleeping in her favorites spots in DR's room, playing with cougi's toys but not her own, etc) and has picked up some of cougi's habits and traits that she didn't display before cougi's passing. it must be simply a coincidence, since she couldn't have "learned" these from cougi since they never "met" each other "in cat-son" but DR and i do wonder if it is somehow like cougi is sending us "postcards" from "kitty cat heaven"

Wow.  That really is weird beyond belief.  I myself (and this is just me) would think that it was some sort of sign.  From who or what I don't know.  Maybe Houdini sent you that image so that you could feel better and help out another cat.  Houdini know what a good heart you have and how much you helped her.  I think she wants you to keep sharing that love.     :)>>>

That's kind of amazing. Do what you feel is right - but I wouldn't hesitate bringing a furry friend into a loving home, especially if he needs one.

That is amazing!  I love when stuff like that happens.  I do agree that it is soon and you should think it over...but maybe you could take a look at him and see if you connect.

The Universe, it is speaking. Do thou listen.

Seriously, how do you react from the diaphragm--at gut level?

Do what you will wish you had done on Saturday morning.

I shall second Yabbit's advice. That is a very good way to look at things.

eta: He is a darling. How I love orange tabby kitties  :)>>>

I am a firm believer in prophetic dreams--although I think they are rare--they can happen! This seems too coincidental to not mean anything! I can understand feeling it is too soon--maybe you can take him in as a foster and see how it goes!

More hugs for you ((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))

Well, I think he's awesome-looking! He looks very curious!

If I still lived there, I think I'd adopt him. Maybe if you do bring him home and he doesn't get along with "the ladies" you'll have to come visit me and just kinda bring him to stay with me.

I just want to snuggle him!  ;D

after my last cat died, I thought I needed some time.  it was so lonely without an animal that a few days later I was on petfinder.com looking for a kitty.  I'm so glad I got her, she has been the sweetest pet ever.
sooooo....yes.....get him!!!

I think its a sign that you are supposed to get him.

I had a dream right after my grandma died about going to her funeral and her holding a baby in the coffin. The NEXT DAY, one of my friends delivered her first baby stillborn. It was soooooo sad, but I think it was a sign that things were supposed to happen that way.
