The H.P. Lovecraft Wiki

In the tunnels of that twisted wood, whose low prodigious oaks twine groping boughs and shine dim with the phosphorescence of strange fungi, dwell the furtive and secretive zoogs
~ H. P. Lovecraft , The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

This subject contains information from the "Lovecraft Circle" Myth Cycles, and while guided by HPL are not based on his work alone. Zoogs are a race of sentient forest-dwelling creatures that inhabit the Dreamlands of Earth. They are mortal enemies of cats, as they prey upon kittens and are preyed upon in return by adult cats.

Randolph Carter enlisted the aid of the zoogs during his quest for Kadath.

Interestingly, the Zoogs have the means to visit the waking world of Earth, travelling physically to and from the Dreamlands at two places kept secret from the general public. They don't range far from these crossover points between the two worlds on the Earth side, but it is fascinating that this is another example of the Dreamlands being not just an "astral" dimension but in some respects more of a physical parallel world or different vibrational level of the "same universe". This is also illustrated by the Cats from Saturn and the mentions of other planets having their own Dreamlands -or perhaps simply their own "local" areas of the same Dreamlands.
