What kind of cat am I?

This is my Mom’s cat.  I know You know all about her, God.  You know about her life BEFORE the Humane Society.

And You know why she has TWO microchips in her.  You understand her trauma about being in a cage for months at the Humane Society.

But as for me, I was ready to take her back.  Because for the first two weeks she stayed BEHIND my Mom’s computer.  Of course, Mom’s first cat, Kat, liked to stay ON the keyboard . . . but only when Mom wanted to type up an email.  So perhaps staying behind the computer wasn’t so bad.

Still, God, in my mind a cat is supposed to be interactive. Maybe not a lap cat, but at least a cat that purrs once in a while.

Then, yesterday, I wondered about myself.  What kind of “cat” am I?  The thought came back this morning.  Do I purr?  I guess that would be an indication of contentment and happiness?  Do I ever sit in Your Lap?  Just sit there  — without asking for anything?  You know I have a hard time just sitting in centering prayer or meditation.  Maybe, God, if I saw that as sitting in Your Lap it would be easier?

And now, as I sit in my computer chair, and look at Kitty sitting in a computer chair, I am feeling VERY MUCH like her.   So, today, God, please help me be more “interactive” — more aware that You, too, must like it when we acknowledge Your Presence.  Acknowledge You as HERE — as worthy of consideration and MORE — and not just here to fill our food dish and water bowl.  Of course, I am speaking as a Cat Person.  Dog people may see You quite differently.  How good it is that You love all creatures great and small.  Thank YOU!
