I've been having weird dreams lately (I don't know why I bother to use the word "lately") about sinister little forest creatures.
In one dream, I have a pet who is a re-animated taxidermy squirrel named Mabel.
In other, an owl is stalking me. He perches at my window and stares...
According to dreammoods.com, to dream of an owl symbolizes -- wait for it -- wisdom! And to see a squirrel in your dream indicates that you are involved in a loveless, pointless relationship, an unprofitable business project, or are pursuing empty and fruitless endeavors!
Interestingly enough, to dream that you are trying to run over squirrels with a lawn mower means you are looking for some form of acceptance.
