    I’ll be darned if you didn’t do it again. Well done.

    The final twist there is fantastic.

    Thank you, Josh… 😉

    Amen and oh so sweet, as usual. Good news that Miss Kitty is doing well…. I completely agree about the desire of having the kits around more. My cats spend most summery days outside…. The glorious thing about wintertime, is, the cats stay in more. Love it!

    Having ended up adopting the two stray kittens that we recently rescued, we are now a household of FIVE cats. Perhaps it’s time for Miss Kitty to have a little competition for your lap and attention. 😀 JK

    She is a jealous feline. 🙂
    I’m trying to convince her to let another stray come inside from the cold…

    It’s taken 6 weeks for my oldest persnickety gal to ‘accept’ the rapidly growing kittens… She now allows them in the same room that she’s in…. but will ‘inform’ them when they invade ‘her’ space. I suppose there’s a “make your own application’ in there too. The Gospel According to Cats.

    I’m trying to tell Miss Kitty that she was a refugee once and she she embrace others like herself.
    It’s not working real well…

    hmm… lovely, lovely object lesson – rings with truth

    Being “Liked” by God is almost more of a jarring realization than hearing constantly that “God loves you.” There’s something disarming about being “liked.”

    My pastor/friend ChuckJr once told us all that God “likes” us.
    You’ve never seen a bigger bunch of stunned people in a church building.
    First the puzzlement.
    Then the embarrassed smiles.
    Then, as the years continue, the changed and enriched lives.
    …all from the realization that our Father “likes” us.

    this post on Miss Kitty does generate some ponders…
    if the Old Testament is any indication, God, too, likes ornery, independent critters

    so glad that Michael’s little feline muse is enjoying her life as a cat again

    Thanks for the big smile – I needed that.

  11. Michael says:

    Ms ODM,

    Glad I could help today… 🙂

    Good to here Miss Kitty has healed, a nice way to end the week with all that has transpired. Reminder of the Fathers care for us. ??

    There you go again, Michael — disarming me with your deep yet simple musings.

    Well written, Michael, and so happy to hear Miss Kitty is feeling better. 🙂
