I came home alone after my audition, and for some reason I'd forgotten that it was my mom's and my birthday at the same time. It was belated, and I gave her a gift in my room. then she told me that my presents. (in this dream, plural nouns mean exactly two.) I opened one, and it was something lame. the second box was FULL OF KITTENS. They were orange an soft. There were around 8 of them.
For some reason, I felt like I should have expected this, and that it was sort of an inside-joke between me and my mom. Sort of like if your parents take away one of the toys in your room and wrap it up as a new gift in order to hide the fact that there is a hundred dollar bill at the bottom of the box. I started taking care of the kittens and I tried to name one but couldn't decide.
At one point I was in the living room with the kittens (they had escaped their box and I had to catch them all) and they were playing games with me. They were walking in front of the projector and playing what looked like patty-cake with each other.
At another point, I had locked myself in the bathroom with some of the kittens for some reason. it felt like I was hiding them from "my stepdad" or something.
