    Miss Kitty needed love and reassuring after all that petition & prayer.

    A real yowler…. Lesson learned.. little cute spoiled kitties always get their way.

    Oh our Scooter pounces with all his might, too. He’s a “chuffer” not a yowler but his persistence is just as tenuous as Miss Kitty. I’m just thankful that God doesn’t turn over and try to go back to sleep when I’m the pouncing kitty and that if He doesn’t answer my “yowling” right away, at least He is able to give me that peace to know that He heard me. Another classic Miss Kitty story to share today. please give her a scratch under the chin from us

    A couple years ago my wife started feeding the cat first thing in the morning, and she got into the habit of waking us up in the wee hours of the night because she thought it was time to be fed. We have since stopped that feeding schedule… she has not reciprocated, and still likes to wake us up in the middle of the night.

    The last couple weeks have brought a new creature into our home that likes to wake us in the middle of the night. Our cat has seen our reluctant march to check her food bowl turn into an impatient yell to, “go away”. She has seen her priority status downgraged to annoyance.

    I’m glad that story doesn’t have a corresponding meaning to our relationship with God.

    My ‘pets’ are the coyotes behind me off the golf course – very effective in keeping the neighborhood cats away. 😉

    Yep. Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

    Miss Kitty may be related to Simon’s Cat

    For me, doesn’t seem to matter how much I yowl.
    I distinctly remember the moment when I realized that my prayers and cries were pointless and no ‘answer’ was forth coming. God isn’t a pushover.

    I do pray, a lot, but not in the manner I used to. I absolutely believe God does answer profoundly ‘sometimes’, I’ve grown accustomed to the silence and lack of observable results, and still put my Trust in Him. No dinner for the kid sent to the corner.

    Me thinks that perhaps Miss Kitty is not a Calvinist…LOL
