the cat that walked by faith

the cat who walked by faith

"So we are always confident; even though we know that while We are at home in the body we are away from the Lord-for we walk by faith, not by sight."
Excerpt from Corinthians 5:6-17

A container of Kentucky Fried Chicken appeared to be dancing in the middle of the dark street, with a life of its own, so we stopped to investigate. Out of the chicken, box crawled a terribly skinny kitten with long black fur and four bright white paws. She had been making that box dance, as she tried to lick out the last crumb for nourishment Now, she purred, leaning into me with her whole body. We adopted that little stray and named her "Little Boots.*

Little Boots thrived with cat food, a trip to the vet, and lots of love. But she remained very small and displayed the silliest behavior. She would sneak up on our other cats as if to attack them, but she would be right in front of them, in plain sight. By the time she pounced, the cats had moved away. She couldn't figure out how they knew she was coming.
