My Cat!!! Now, my cat Missy knows the routine. I go to work early, and when I come home I feed her and put her outside. It's been that way every day since she came to live in my house. Last week, she put up quite a fight (for the first time) when I put her out. She raked up my shoulder good with her claws when I opened the door, and now I'm mad! My friend came home the other day and asked if I wanted him to let her in. I said no! She's an outside cat now, I told him. And I explained why I was angry with the cat. He said: But it says in the bible that we're supposed to forgive! I shot right at him: But it also says in the bible that man will have dominion over the animals; it doesn't say animals will reign over man! Missy has been getting worse as the days go on. She's been trying to get at my pet turtle (Sprout) and she sneaks around doing bad things. Question: Do you think God wants me to treat my cat like a human being? To forgive it? Or is it okay for me to go on being angry with it because she won't follow my rules when she's in the house (believe me...she knows the rules. When she hears me coming, she'll jump down from the turtle's tank and then sit there and look at me like...who, sweet little innocent me???) Thanks for listening to me rant.
