    Scripture: “We wrestle not against flesh and blood…”

    Me: “Hell, yes we do! Somebody’s gotta set him straight…!”

    Jesus: (eye-roll) “sigh…”

    another fine post by Cat-man-due. thanks for the feline-inspired insights. your raccoon comments were spot on.

    Wish you were a dog guy though. 🙂

    Take it up with the cats… and thank you. 🙂

    I walk my dogs twice a day and some routes take me through cat neighborhoods and others through dog-dom. The cat neighborhoods keep my Heeler-Border Collie’s hair up the whole time!

    Taking something up with cats is the modern definition of futility. 🙂

    Poor Smokey, i remember when my vet told me that a pack of raccoons had killed a German Shepherd…. We had a neighbor who thought they were sooo cute – she set food out for them…
    We live in a world of good and evil and sometimes there’s no way to win… We’re overrun with gophers and a great big gopher snake has shown up…. My good is the gophers’ evil

    I pray little Smokey makes it – he is a special little cat hero

    He’ll be ok…he’ll learn eventually that he’s no match for the masked bandits…

    That’s the way I feel I’ve been fighting and I’m wounded and infected..thank God I have a Savior who cleans it all out, bandages my wounds and talks sense to my silly self.

    Filberts @ 10:23…. Cat man due just hasn’t met the right dogs, they’re not all cat killers
    I think my daughter as a problem. She, too, rescues cats, but has 4 bird feeders in her back yard…. Can one be both a bird and a cat lover? She also loves pitbulls (they’re very loving gentle dogs if raised right.. Otherwise ….
    Nice to think about God’s creatures, including us, Mike E, instead of the satanic permeated world that we live in…
    God does, indeed, heal
    Focus, Em, focus.

    I have steadily stepped further and further back from my emotional engagement from politics since 2009, in the early months of the Obama presidency.

    I’ve tried to since March as well.

    I still keep up more than most, but my heart isn’t getting jerked around.

    My recent perspective: most Christians used to (mostly?) be too heavenly minded to do any political worldly good.

    It’s impossible to think we as believers aren’t too far the other way: too worldly minded (in politics) to be much good to and in the kingdom of God.

    Practically, Bible reading, some Zoom and occasionally real life (very cautiously worked out, in outdoor spaces) fellowship, with a hobby sprinkled in there occasionally have greatly increased my peace level.

    Ohhhh and some really stupid humor on Youtube.

    Just putting it out there.

    PS. I am unfollowing, and in one tragic case blocking, people on social media who raise the drama level in unhealthy ways.

    I hope you all have a great weekend.

    Live animal traps have been a life saver around our property. Squirrels and skunks here, but if it helps you, our blogmeister…

  13. Michael says:


    We’ve got the aforementioned squirrels and skunks as well as raccoons, possums and the occasional fox.
    More than a few orphans of all of the above that I don’t mind feeding.
    We’re experimenting…Ol’ Smokey has been in the house the last couple of days with no issues. He loves being with me, so I’m hoping he’ll stay in and behave.
    So far, so good…
