THE STORY OF CAT
NEWLY DISCOVERED MISSING CHAPTER OF GENESIS!
And Adam spake saying:, "Lord, when I wast in the garden, Thou walked with me every day. Now I do not see Thee anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much Thou lovest me."
And God spake unto him from a whirlwind saying, " I will create a companion for thee that will always rejoice to see thee and who will be a reflection of My love for thee, so that Thou will love Me even when thou canst not see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable thou may be, this new companion will accept thee as thou art, will love thee as I do, in spite of thyself."
And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And it was a good animal. And God was pleased. And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail.
And Adam saith, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."
And God spake unto him saying: "Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of My love for thee, its name will be a reflection of My own Name, and thou wilt call him DOG."
And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content and wagged his tail.
After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel came unto the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believeth that he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but perhaps too well."
And God saith, "I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not worthy of adoration."
And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Adam learned humility.
And God was pleased.
And Adam was greatly improved.
And Dog was happy.
And Cat couldn't care less one way or the other..
