Cemetary Cats











Can you tell what's real and what's not in these pictures? Well, of course the cats are the only real thing. This house in our neighborhood decorates every year for Halloween. In their front yard are tombstones, bones, and the skelton of a pirate. And for some reason, the cats just love it. It's their local hangout, The Meow Cafe'. They are all very friendly, sweet cats. You can see them coming down the steps to meet our car, and posing and meowing prettily for us. Do they even know that their hangout is a creepy boneyard? I thought it was dogs that love bones! We love cats, and had three when we were first married. Unfortunatly, I'm allergic now. Cats may have a more checkered history than any other animal. Through history, they have been worshipped & mummified, persecuted, and used to symbolize many things. And speaking of cats and graveyards, what do you think happens to our pets when they die? Many animal lovers think that there is some kind of Animal Heaven. There are even poems about it. It's surely a nice thought. Here's a thought from Ecclesiastes 3:19: "Man's fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: as one dies, so does the other. All have the same breath; man has no advantage over the animal...all go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. Who knows if the spirit of man rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth". Of course, this is not a statement, it's a question. But it is interesting to note that man is the only being who God breathed His breath into. I think this is something that no one can know, what do you think?

Love the pictures, as i clicked on each one to admire the details, some of them have leaves that are beautiful, to see the dead and alive, i laughed out loud on each click. the cats are having a ball.
i will be very surprised if we get to heaven and there are no dogs and cats. the Word does say the lion will lay down with the lamb, that makes me believe there will be animals in heaven.
