Rats in Dreams

Rats are vermin that can infest our homes and sometimes infiltrate our dreams.  Rats in the real world are hated and despised because they destroy crops and bring diseases.  They have started plagues and brought death.  Aside from maybe Mickey Mouse the site of a rat will make your squirm with disgust.

Like most other animals in dreams, how an animal is thought of is generally a representation of the people that are in our lives. For example, do you have a friend who acts like a rat?  Are they persistent, annoying and destructives like the rats in the real world?  Then this may be our subconscious telling us to be wary of this friend.

Some dream interpreters also see rats as a sign of poverty, strife, danger and illness.  Dreaming about rats may be an omen that these hardships may be forthcoming in your life.  Rats are also lab animals which are used for testing so dream interpreters will usually ask if the dreamer feels as though he is under a microscope.  These animals are repulsed so maybe the dreamer is also experiencing people who shun him away or maybe even he himself is repulsed by something he did

One Response to “Rats in Dreams”

Hello,

It is so unfortunate that most people attach so much negativity to rats. They are NOT ugly, they are very intelligent and cuddly, they purr and they don’t gnaw at everything unless they want to file their teeth or eat. People hate them because they were taught to do so. It is pure ignorance, as for so many things on this earth plane, nothing more than perceptions. Should you tell me I am a rat I would take it as a compliment.

What I read about rats in dreams is so negative. I had 49 rats in my life, with different personalities and I loved them all. I have been dreaming about rats for years and it has nothing to do with treachery, fears, poverty or danger. I am always glad I had to see my friends in my dreams and I thank them for showing me they appreciate my love for them through my dreams.
