Cats and Catholics

Last week we adopted a cat and I have come to the conclusion that a cat would make a rotten Catholic.   It's a good thing that animals don't have everlasting, spiritual souls as I can't see cats being heaven-bound.  They aren't very obedient or humble and rather seem almost condescending.  Our new cat is constantly testing the waters, breaking the rules, stretching the boundaries.  If he can't slip through the gate..he just jumps on over.   I can't see a cat being too good at certain virtues, like obedience or humility and if the kitten population is anything to go by, they aren't too good at chastity either.

Nonetheless,  I hate mice and I hate rats.  I'm  also not too fond of bats.  But..I LOOOOVVE Cats 

Cats are still wonderful.  There is just something about those intelligent eyes, the twitching tail, the purr that makes them so endearing.  Having a cat sit in your lap, purring while you stroke his fur is the best therapy and stress-release.  Somehow, while petting a cat, all is well, the world seems all right and problems are managable.

Plus, they perform the most important job in the world....they rid the house of MICE  (see prior post to learn more of my love of mice).

Breastfeeding and Arthritis

Breaking news:   Breastfeeding decreases the incidence of rheumatoid arthritis.

A woman who has just two children and breastfeeds each of them for a year decreases her risk of rheumatoid arthritis by 50 percent," he says. "That is just striking."http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/11/04/health/webmd/main653734.shtml

 

Wow..that is striking!!!  This just further confirms that nor only is breastfeeding good for the mother, NOT breastfeeding is bad.  Just another confirmation that when you start fooling with nature and God's Plan, things get messed up.

Mice

Mice are Not Nice

They should be kept on Ice

Or Rolled like Dice

And Put in a Vice

and Boiled like Rice

Mice are Not Nice

But they are better than Lice

Which No One Wants Twice

or Thrice

We must Entice the Mice

to leave.

They're worth killing at any Price.

Mice are Not Nice.
