forget me nots

dream: kitten in the bathroom sink

So in this dream, I was in a public bathroom. I don't know where I was or what I had been doing. But I went to wash my hands and in the sink I chose, there was a tiny baby kitten, maybe 4-5 weeks old, up to its little chin in water. So I scooped it up, rinsed it off and tried to figure out how to get it dry. It feels wrong to call it "it" so we're going to go with her. She looked like my BabyKitty a little in the face so that works as well as anything. Plus, yesterday, I had just shown my grandma an old picture that had a baby BabyKitty in it, so it wouldn't be surprising if that's where my brain pulled some of this dream from.

Anyway, so the kitten is wet and I'm trying to figure out how to best dry her off. My grandma was there and was suggesting I find some lady with a stand or a shop in whatever this place we were in and she had some sort of super absorbent towels or something that I ought to find useful. My brain, now, wants to say she was supposed to be selling some sort of shamwow type things. Anyway, I decided not to and was using paper towels but intending to find a good hand dryer somewhere in the building.

The next part I remember is me talking to some lady who I think was a principal or something. I was in what felt like a school and I don't know if I was a student or how old I was supposed to be. But this lady was supposed to have authority over me, whatever our roles really were. She was saying something about me not keeping/caring for the kitten and I told her to shut it. That I absolutely *was* going to help that baby and there was nothing she was going to do about it. So there! Take that fictional principal lady!

Anyway, right after that is about where I woke up because I had to pee for real. But in the dream, I was plotting out a trip to the store for kitten food.
