Fact of the Day: Dreams

Your most active dreams take place each night during the stage known as REM (Rapid Eye Movement) Sleep. It gets its name as your eyes will move back and forth constantly during it. Virtually all known land mammals and birds have been discovered to go through REM sleep as well. Which makes it very likely that these animals have dreams as well.

I've noticed my cats dreaming. It's quite interesting how they react. I wonder what they dream about.

I wonder what our cow would have dreamed of? She used to go bug eye when I would give her the unripened corn in the fall, stalks and all. I suspect she dreamed of those days!

Cats and dogs dream! My dogs will bark and move their legs in their sleep like they are running!

I KNOW my dog dreams. Many times he starts woofing in his sleep and his feet start pedaling like he's chasing something.
Mrs. Penwasser says I do the same thing.

My dog sleeps next to me all day. She'll suddenly start making weird noises...not quite a bark. It's a weird sound. And her paws start moving. I like to believe her dreams are like the commercial, where the dog dreams he's running through a field and on all kinds of adventures!

Anyone who has lived with a dog or cat knows they dream.
