We live in a BIG city, however, our cat dudes are not City Cats and do not take to the indoors. This means daily stress for the cat parents and has made us very prayerful indeed. Just this past Sunday Augustus babe did not return home at his usual hour. We expect the boys to wonder back into the condo around 11 or noon.
We searched all over.
Broken hearted we tried to accept that he may have been lost or stolen, and Ollie tried to soothe his nerves with some cat snuff.
Hours later, Augustus wonders back meow meowing looking all exhausted and ragged. He ran up to his bedroom and was sacked.
Ollie kept a close eye on his big brother.
I too stuck around and snapped a few pictures and asked myself if I wanted to do this blog anymore. Oh well, a stressful Sunday afternoon came to a happy end.
I came across this prayer...
O God! Thou knowest that the people are encircled with pain and calamities and are environed with hardships and trouble. Every trial doth attack man and every dire adversity doth assail him like unto the assault of a serpent. There is no shelter and asylum for him except under the wing of Thy protection, preservation, guard and custody.
O Thou the Merciful One! O my Lord! Make Thy protection my armory, Thy preservation my shield, humbleness before the door of Thy Oneness my guard, and Thy custody and defense my fortress and my abode. Preserve me from the suggestions of myself and desire, and guard me from every sickness, trial, difficulty and ordeal.
Verily, Thou art the Protector, the Guardian, the Preserver, the Sufficer, and verily, Thou art the Merciful of the Most Merciful!
Now if I could only teach the dudes to say this prayer...
Wishing all a safe and beautiful day embellished with cat kisses,
