Dreaming or ...

Somedays when Augustus closes his eyes
Ollie starts with his shenanigans

Then he sits up innocently just pretending he was doing nothing at all...

Gussy asks me if he was dreaming or if Ollie really had caught a black mousie!

I tell him I am not sure ... perhaps even Ollie was dreaming, dreaming a delicious dream!

We later read the following passage,

"...Consider thy state when asleep. ... Behold how the thing which thou hast seen in thy dream is, after a considerable lapse of time, fully realized. Had the world in which thou didst find thyself in thy dream been identical with the world in which thou livest, it would have been necessary for the event occurring in that dream to have transpired in this world at the very moment of its occurrence. Were it so, you yourself would have borne witness unto it. This being not the case, however, it must necessarily follow that the world in which thou livest is different and apart from that which thou hast experienced in thy dream. This latter world hath neither beginning nor end. It would be true if thou wert to contend that this same world is, as decreed by the All-Glorious and Almighty God, within thy proper self and is wrapped up within thee. It would equally be true to maintain that thy spirit, having transcended the limitations of sleep and having stripped itself of all earthly attachment, ...been made to traverse a realm which lieth hidden in the innermost reality of this world..."

and wondered if Ollie had actually caught a mouse, or if Augustus had forseen his catching of a mouse in future. We remained puzzled for the rest of the day!

Cat boys send you wishes of beautiful real dreams and pawfuls of little kisses!

  3. Oh, that tummy. Ollie reminds me of one of our cats, mainly because of his size and apparent love of rolling around.
