Kittens are usually seen as a universal metaphor for cuteness, and the dream symbol of kittens is no different at all. If you are having dreams about kittens, then chances are you have done something exceptionally cute lately. Perhaps the meaning of dream about kittens is simply to remind you of how much fun you had getting your nails done the other day, or how entertaining it was to play with your young son or daughter one afternoon. The entry on kittens in a dream dictionary will usually be very short because of how simple they are as a metaphor.
Another possibility for dream interpretations regarding kittens is that they represent innocence. This also goes back to activities such as playing with your child, or revisiting old childhood memories in some cases. Kittens are widely known for being innocent creatures. Seen as adorable and angelic to most, even if a kitten has done something wrong, it is hard to find them guilty of a malicious act when they have no real knowledge that what they've done is wrong since they are animals, and baby animals at that. This is just one dream interpretation of kittens though.
Another dream meaning that kittens might have is more directly applicable to responsibility. Besides being cute, adorable, and innocent, kittens also take a lot of responsibility to care for. If you have a dream in which you are buying a kitten, or own a kitten, this may be because you are taking steps in waking life towards increasing your responsibilities.
Perhaps you are dreaming about cats simply because you want a cat, and think that it is time that you owned one. Other dream meaning assert however, that the kitten can simply be a universal dream symbol for responsibility. You may be seeing cats in your dreams if you are a babysitter, or perhaps even a soccer coach. Cats manage somehow to represent responsibility on all levels. Even if something as obscure as a promotion at work has recently occurred to you, you might be seeing kittens in your dreams.
If you are having dreams where you are being careful with kittens, or petting kittens lightly, this might be a sign that you should be more cautious with your decisions in your waking life. It is also a sign of how decisions you make and actions you take affect others. If you are having too many dreams about kittens, this might be because you feel too responsible for others, and are having trouble deciding what you need to do in order to keep everyone you know safe. This might be a sign that you should step back from whatever authoritative post that you've assumed and take some time to yourself. Simply allow yourself some time to make decisions that affect only you, and do not try to interfere too much in the affairs of others. If you make sure to stay within your own personal bubble for long enough, it is likely that you will stop having so many kitten related dreams.
