Kittens are the tiny and vulnerable version of adored and admired cat, one of the most beautiful animals in the world, both loved and hated by humankind.
As we all know, cats were believed to be deities in various mythologies around the planed and throughout human history. Egyptian cat goddess Bastet and the lioness Bast, Nordic goddess Freya’s companion cats, Japanese lucky cat, maneki neko and many other spiritual shapes and forms of this beautiful creature has been playing an important role in creating our picture about cats.
Wild, self-willed and a bit arrogant, cats are never to be tamed. Even if they let you pamper them, purring and cuddling with you, cats are never manipulated.
Many people do not like them for being stubborn and free willed, unlike dogs that are far more obedient and friendly. However, it is not unusual for a cat pet to become greatly attached for her human being and develop special, everlasting and unbreakable connection with its owner.
On the other hand, there are not so many people who could remain cold-hearted seeing kittens!
Those irresistibly adorable furry balls awake sweet emotions of joy, love, kindness and beauty. They are so tiny and fragile, cute and funny.
Little cats are a synonym for everything pure, innocent, soft and tender. They are very vulnerable, being small, light and soft, but they also posses courage of an adult cat.
There are so many situations in which a little furry ball faces much bigger opponent, for example, a big dog, and yet stands its ground.

For example, you constantly think about what others think about every single world you say. You should stop doing that; black kittens in dream are a good reminder.
Dreams about kittens with mother
If you dream about kittens with their cat mom, it could be interpreted in various ways.
If you feel good about this dream, it is most likely a reflection of your own feeling about being taken care for and protected by a dear person with positive intentions (e.g. parents, a partner, the best friend, even a tutor or someone else).
On a negative side, it could mean you are actually feeling pressured by someone who does care for you, but tries to control you, thinking he or she is doing the best for you.
Kittens with their mother also represent you feeling of being controlled and manipulated, usually by someone very close to you, such as parentally figure or a spouse, even a friend.
It could also have more negative meaning.
Try to think by your own head; do not let others persuade make decisions you actually do not feel into, even if you see they would only like to help you.
Dreams about abandoned kittens
If you see abandoned, scared kittens in your dream, it is most likely a reflection of your fears in your waking life or a reflection of your depression, sadness and similar feelings.
You are feeling alone, left on your own and scared.
Maybe you have faced a great loss; losing a dear person or something that means a lot to you or is related to your existence and well being (e.g. if you have great health issues or you lost your home, job etc.) could often reflect in a dream about tiny, fragile and abandoned kittens.
Dreams about meowing kittens
If you dream about kittens that are mewing, it means bad news. It means there will be some troubles, most likely minor, but distressing.
You have surrounded yourself with some people that are constantly nagging at you. Maybe you have piled up more duties and responsibilities than you are able to handle at the same time.
Meowing kittens in a dream is sort of a warning sign; it means you should slow down a bit and try to find out what are your priorities and what things or even people can wait.
