THE MARMUKE CAT FOUNDATION
THE DREAM AND THE REALITY
by Dee Finney
|2-23-02 - DREAM - I don't know what state this dream took place in because the house I was living in wasn't like any house I've ever lived
in. I was in a room of the house I can't describe, kind of like a huge sitting room. It
was daylight and brightly lit by sunlight.
I had to go to the bathroom really bad and our bathroom was actually just a single toilet stall in the corner. The walls were only chest high, so you could be seen when you were standing up but not when you were sitting down. It had double doors that latched in the center. I was in the process of standing there, trying to latch the doors when my kids let a woman and two young girls into the room. So I had to see what she wanted before I could go potty.
The woman and the girls were thin, dressed in greenish clothes on the order of girl scout green, but not exactly uniformish. The woman had an old-fashioned flowered scarf on her head.
She said, "Pardon the intrusion, but your friend Robin started a foundation for the care of Marmuke cats. She's away on vacation now and I'm collecting money for her."
All she had in her hands was a piece of paper which I assumed was a list of names and addresses she was calling on.
Since Robin was on vacation I couldn't call her and verify whether the woman was telling the truth. So, I said, "Just for Marmuke cats?' I have had as many as 12 cats to house and feed."
She answered, "12? I've got 15 or 16 cats."
So I told the woman I would go get my purse and give her what little money I had.
She said, "Okay!" and stood there while I went to get my purse.
I assumed the woman had come in the back door, because she came in through a short hallway with double doors on it. It was a long way through the house to get my purse because it was U shaped. There was a short-cut in the middle of the U, but I didn't think to use it. I went the long way. While I was walking, I was thinking about the other rooms I wasn't using which were on the other side of the bedroom wall where there were no windows, like another whole house where my daughter could live if I opened it up. I knew that part of the house was brightly lit because that's where the windows were.
I finally found my purse. I was looking deep which was brightly lit inside like a refrigerator with a light at the back. But I didn't find any money just pens, pencils, and small pieces of paper. I figured the money was probably in a larger purse which I sometimes put this purse into when I went somewhere.
I hung the purse around my neck on a long chain so the women would know I had really looked for my money.
All of a sudden the woman and the two little girls came walking through the shortcut hallway and I told her, "I'm sorry, but I used up my last $3. I won't have any more money until the 1st of the month. I can send Robin a check for her Marmuke foundation after the 1st of the month. That's the best I can do."
The woman looked very disappointed that I didn't have any money to give her. The little girls were still smiling and hugged me. I hated to disappoint her, but that was the best I could do.
|NOTE: There is no such thing as a Marmuke type of cat. We
looked on the web and in dictionarys. No such thing. So, I had to wonder
why I dreamed this in the first place. I've done other cat pages,
but nothing about foundations for cats.
