They're Like Furry Kids

When the cats are awake, they want to be where we are. The dinner-prep hour is prime kitty time. They love to hang out in the kitchen just to see what's going on and be around just in case I might drop something tasty or decide to share.

I was making a fruit salad and realized I'd forgotten to move the chairs back into the dining room after vacuuming. My little shadows were sharing a chair and watching my every move. They're looking at the floor in this picture because I said Calvin's name to get him to look up at me, but it backfired and he prepared to get down and come to me. But aren't they cute?

It's Mom Time in their little furry world, but as soon as Steven gets home, they'll greet him at the door, scream for attention, then follow him all around the house because they're just so happy to see him. Really, they're like children; they just happen to have fur, can't get the hang of English, and sleep a lot. Oh, and we don't have to worry about paying to send them to college.

They are just like kids! Not only do you not have to pay for college, but you don't have to POTTY TRAIN them. Woohoo for that! :)

It is rather cute if I may so so. I don't know what you think about it, I recently heard a sermon saying that animals do have souls. After having had a dog for a while, I agree.

Ann, that's true. They came to us already litter-box trained.

Annie, I lean towards animals having souls. In the beginning, we were meant to live harmoniously with animals, and they weren't meant to be food for us. Then the fall happened. Revelation says that every creature above the earth, on the earth, and under the earth will praise the Lord, and I tend to think that creatures would have to have souls to do so.
