The Pastor's Cat

I find this story to be so cute! I've read that same story some where here on the Internet, before. My favorite part is imagining the kitten flying out of the blue sky, and landing right smack dab in front of her - right after she had just finished praying to GOD, asking for the cat. And I would have loved to have read the Pastor's mind, once he had found out what had happened to the kitten. Jonah2005{*genesis!}
