Hi Stayce, and welcome to Just Answer.
Thanks very much for your patience. My apologies that you did not receive an earlier answer. Different experts are online at various times and I just logged in and read your question.
My heartfelt condolences on the recent passing of your beloved Scoobie. I recently lost a furry boy of my own, so I can empathize with the way your feeling.
Seeing Scoobie in your dream, in a forest-like setting and with other cats and animals, indicates that of course, he's very present in both your conscious and sub-conscious mind, because you miss him so much and he was such a big part of your life; however, seeing him as a kitten, shows that he has returned to a place where no pet is sick, they are free to romp and play and be 'young' again, and you and he are going to be reunited one day.
If Scoobie had, at one time, been troubled by fleas and you took care of it or perhaps didn't have the money to take care of that problem or an illness that he had, this may be why, in your dream, you told him as soon as you had the money you would be back for him. You may be feeling that if you had more money, perhaps you could have done more for him and he would be here now.
The appearance of Scoobie in your dream doesn't mean he's coming to get you; it's not your time yet. It means that one day, you will be reunited in a beautiful place, where there is no illness or sadness, like the one you envisioned in your dream which is similar to the one described in this poem:
Picturing Scoobie in a place like this, is helping to ease your grief in some small way, and you both know he will always be in your heart.
Perhaps when you feel ready, you can get another cat or kitten to love and cherish and considering the wonderful life you gave Scoobie, any cat you adopt would be very lucky!
My best thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
