  1. I had a dream last night about an aardvark. Though it was not a nightmare, the aardvark was not friendly or cuddly. In my dream, I was in a strangers bathroom with a cat. I went to wash my hands as the cute cat was in the corner sleeping. When I put my hands under the faucet, the aardvarks paw reaches up and then hisses at me. The rest of the dream was the aardvark and the cat standing at the door making scary sounds and trying to not let me out of the bathroom. The only thing I could remember is saying to the aardvark “You seem hungry” so I was trying to beg him to leave to get food. I don’t remember how or what happen next in my dream. I don’t even know why I’m on this forum. All I know is I saw an aardvark in my dream and it was really weird.

  2. Last night I dreamed I was outside in the evening and my dog psychically urged me to break off part of a fence to form a plank. Then he directed me in a direction towards a fairly large, gray aardvark that was sick and behaving aggressively. I then tried to beat it to death, but only succeeded in crippling it without getting injured myself. My dog stayed out of the way. Then I brought my parents over to it. Mom, my dog, and I watched as Dad finished it off. I do have a dog in real life. I also tend to stay up at night. I feel any of these other interpretations are possible, but I’m still not understanding what part of me is needing to be “killed off”.

  3. About a month ago or more, i had a dream about a huge Aardvark, ..this thing was massive and it kept rubbing up against me like it wanted to be petted and loved.. etc… To my knowledge, we really dont have any around this area and i have absolutely no idea why i dreamt that… Of all the animals in the world, but i am a night person and i sleep mostly during the day, so i thought this reading was interesting.

  4. So, I think you may have missed this interpretation of the aardvark, because last night, I had a dream featuring an aardvark which i am certain can be interpreted outside your helpful (but informative) guidelines. The aardvark was of typical size, coloration, and behavior, however, the aardvark was incredibly fast and was quickly eating all of the termites that had somehow appeared in my kitchen. The speed at which it cleaned the floor made me realize this aardvark was representative of my efforts to clean up my past transgressions.
