Monday’s Musings 8: What about the animals?

Hey guys,
Steve here.

I’ve been going to church for a couple months now. I am by no means saved or anything like that–it’s new to me and I’m not ready to go that far. But I’ve paid enough attention to the preature and youth bible study teachers to develop a question–What about the animals?
In church, you always hear about man, and what they can do to go to heaven or hell, but I’ve never heard about animals. Even going to church and having religious friends, I still don’t know what will happen to my cat when he passes away. For a human, although it is very sad and tragic, I can be comforted by the thought that they are up in heaven, whether it is true or not. But not with animals…
What about the dogs that attack people or other small creatures? Even if it was not intended to be that way in most cases, the animal still took another life. What happens to that animal when it dies? Or what about another dog who was faithful to their owner and never hurt another creature, what about that?
Like I said, my knowledge of religion is not the best in the world, and maybe someone out there could answer this question for me. But until that happens, I will be wondering, what about the animals?

about the cat

I just wanted to share to you some info that I learned from google, wikipedia, and other inet resorses.
1. Did you know that cats don’t just pur when they are happy? Nope, they will also pur in tence situations, or near-death states, or even during illness.
2. Have you ever wanted to know how much your cat purs? Cats pur in a freequency of 25 to 150 vibrations per second. Pretty fast, huh?
3. A sign of trust. When your cat exposes ther chest or stomach, it usually means they have a good sign of trust in you. Note, overwait cats may also lay on there sides or backs to keep comfertable.
4. Stay away! Cats will growl, hiss, arch ther backs, or twitch there tails as a sign that you have irritated them, and also they can fold back there ears. When there ears are flat, they feel threatened.
5. Do you wonder why cats arch? I know I told you for there protection, but they do this to make themselves look larger. Cats can do this to scare off danger.
