Tom Talking to Hymnself



I try to be a good cat. I don't always make it to every single Mass, but that's all right because Will and Jack say I've become too much of a distraction when people want to pray. I love how issues come out of nowhere! Anyway, so I run in and out of the pews, jump on laps during the sermon (which is welcome, believe me), but that's just enhancing the worship experience, I say.

I personally think people should pray wherever they happen to be. Like this kitty. I know he was saying his prayers!



Brave kitty!

Ha! That pic is cute, we've seen it before. Supposedly they're police dogs being trained not to be distracted--or so the tale (tail?) goes.

The mom says church would have been much more enjoyable if there had been a church cat in her little country parish church when she was growing up. :-P

And you're right, purrsonally, we don't think "god" cares where anyone prays or what they wear to do it, etc.

What a furry brave cat and very obedient dogs!
Do you get treats when you jump up on a lap for a cuddle in church Tom?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Brian said...

Many prayers are answered when you jump on their lap Tom, I'm certain of it! Happy weekend everyone!

If we would have a cat here in the church I would go too, lol ! As you say it doesn't have to be a church necessarily especially when the priest is an old fashioned guy (all churches are catholic in Belgium) and would even like to hold the mass in latin !! Of course no cat comes then !

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

My human wishes there had been a cat at the church she went to growing up. Maybe she would have been on time to the services then!

Marg said...

I bet those church goers really like to see you in the middle of the sermon. You must always feel very welcome. And we know that kitty walking in front of all those doggies was saying some serious prayers. Great picture. Have a fun day.

I would love to come to the church if you will be there :-)
I love the photo of a kitty walking in front of so many dogs!!

Catsparella said...

Hmm, either that kitty is brave..or those doggies know that cats rule! :) I hope you had a wonderful weekend, furriend!

Father Tom said...

The sky tinkled all weekend. We had two days of rain and I slept. Thanks for your comments and remember, keep up the smiles and the tails, furriends!

Mom says yoo can pray anywhere ... yoo don't need to be inside the church. We sometimes PURRay seveal times a day when our kitty friends are ill or troubled. Purrs.

Cathy Keisha said...

TW says the same thing. You don't have to be in church the pray. I'm not even allowed in the church. It must be fun for you cos there are prolly church mice too.

Elizabeth said...

Oh, that's one brave kitty and a bunch of very full dogs. (or a miracle) :) Have a great week!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Came by to catch up on your posts. You do manage to keep busy. And for those folks you've been catching sneaking in the back door, a bell above the door would solve that problem. :)

Oskar said...

I bet that kitty was saying his prayers!
