    I am sorry to again come up with a counter illustration of why I am a poor representation of God in my cat’s life. I was vacuuming the house yesterday, and placed her food bowl on top of the bin that we keep her food in. She spent the remainder of the day unable to reach her food, until I noticed my mistake this morning.

    I am glad that God is very little like me.

    dswoager,

    Miss Kitty would have let me know…violently if necessary. 🙂

    Ugh.. cats again?!
    Starting to sound like a broken record or a guitar with only one string.

    For those of us who have attempted and failed to find lasting meaning and contentment apart from a living and committed relationship of reciprocal love and affection with Jesus….
    … application made. Thx michael for the reminder.
    Now get a dog ok? 😉

    There are 650 million websites on the internet.
    Feel free to visit them all and come back later.

    Maude is still acclimating herself to the new dynamic of the household I think. Given that we are conveying a pretty steady “stay the heck away” vibe around the baby, she is being more solitary than normal… which is actually saying something because she was already tended to keep to herself most of the time.

    dswoager,

    That’s a tough transition for a cat…she may start acting out for attention.

  7. dswoager says:

    Michael, I think she’ll be alright… she has had a rough life (only half sarcastically), we had a second cat that used to beat her up, who has since found a new home and is apparently tormenting mice and small birds now. She has also lived with having three different dogs introduced into the house. Only with the first dog did she ever really act out.

    She has somehow come to terms with being a frightened cat. She is still as skittish as ever, but she has a comfort zone with her own fear.

    That was insightful…I may need to borrow her for this series. 🙂

    Poor Maude; some cats are like i’d have been if my husband had brought home another woman…
    my daughter has one who had what can only be called a nervous breakdown resulting in a complete personality reversal from a playful mouser to a nervous wreck when my daughter adopted my late husband’s cat: the feline version of the Fonz, Axel (he got his name from his love of cars) is totally at home in his own arrogant little cat pelt, the only things that intimidate him are male quail and horses … and me – but we have a good understanding 🙂

    Hahahahhaa

    CATZZZZZ!

    Who ever imagined what a great sermon illustration resource they could be?
    All Creation testifies to the Glory of God.

    Paige, i agree
    i think one of the reasons for animals is to teach us about ourselves – our foibles and blind spots … and, maybe, grace, eh?

    Oh, Miss Kitty! I learn so much about myself through you.
