I have had recurring dreams about big cats (lions, tigers, panthers, leopards, jaguars) for at least a couple of years. Initially, my dream was pretty much the same. I was driving (alone, at dusk) on well traveled road near my home in suburbia, and big cats were either sitting there or pacing back and forth in the grassy areas several feet off of the road. I was very fearful and not sure where they came from. Did they escape from a zoo? Is it the apocolypse? I just kept driving - fast. I had another dream of the same type where it was some sort of playground/petting zoo in another country, and unbeknownst to me the big cats were just roaming around, free to pounce on me at any moment. In last night's dream, I was driving in an unfamiliar setting, and came upon a grassy hilly area (off road), I was driving down the grassy hill and there were big cats all over the place. I started driving really fast, not caring if I hit any of them. I finally came to a place where I could turn around and go back up the hill. There were also a lot of trees. I don't have contact with any of the big cats in the dreams, I am in a car (except in the park/playground/petting zoo setting). They don't actually try to attack me (they just sit there or pace back and forth), but in the dreams I am terrified that they will attack and really freaked out that they are in these settings. Does anyone know what these dreams could mean?
