The Cat Who Writes™

I am a cat. I write.

Cats are not foolish

Reading the Bible in the morning with Mrs. Hodges

When I woke up today Mrs. Hodges and I sat by the fireplace at 4:50:53 a.m. and read Chapter 27 in the book of Proverbs in the Bible. The book of Proverbs talks a lot about foolish people and how to be wise.

Cats are not foolish. We know when to hold our tongue and not complain. It is silly to be annoyed. We are able to discipline ourself and we are very prudent.

A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.
Proverbs 12-16

When my staff forget to feed me, I do not get annoyed. They are not insulting me, they are just humans and are forgetful.

I always send Nepeta, one of the kittens, upstairs to scratch on Mrs. Hodges door at 4:00 in the morning, and she always comes down and feeds us.

Today in Proverbs Chapter 27, I read about birds that leave their nest, and men that stray from their home.

Like a bird that strays from its nest is a man who strays from his home.
Proverbs 27:8

If I found a bird that strayed from its nest I would eat it.

If I met the man who stayed from his home, I would tell him to go home. Who knows there might just be a giant cat that will eat him.

Pooh Hodges, the cat read his Bible today

Are you easily annoyed?  Please tell me in the comments. I would love to sit in your lap and talk.

(If you are easily annoyed, maybe you need to think like a cat, relax and take a nap.)
