THE CATS' LITANY
(Joan M Vivian)


For all unwanted kittens and cats
For all who have no-one to love them
We beseech Thee to hear us, Good Lord.

For all sick and injured kittens and cats
We beseech Thee to hear us, Good Lord.

For all abandoned and dumped cats
Especially pregnant queens with nowhere to bear their kittens
We beseech Thee to hear us, Good Lord.

From all cruel, unthinking people and those
Who put the cat out at night
Good Lord deliver us.


From all who go on holiday and leave us to fend for ourselves
From all those who think cats are self-sufficient and can feed themselves
Good Lord deliver us.


From wet nights and no shelter
Good Lord deliver us.


From mange, cat flu, feline enteritis and all the ills cats are heir to,
Good Lord deliver us.


We thank you, Lord, for all those who love us,
For warm milk, warm bed, fires and any who make happy homes for us,
At rescue shelters,
And grant, O Lord, when our time comes,
A happy ending and a place reserved for cats in Thy Heaven.
















JUDGEMENT DAY
(Anon)

"What have you done?" The Lord will say,
On Judgement Day, On Judgement Day,
"What have you done to fur and bone?
What have you done to my own, to my own?
I gave them sight. You took it away.
What have you done?" The Lord will say.


"Slowly, in pain, you made them die,
I heard them cry, I heard them cry.
Oh did you not see the beauty and grace?
That you did deface, that you did deface.
Oh did you not know, or did you not care,
That like you, like you, they felt pain and fear?
They responded to love, they responded to life,
But you cut them up with a knife, with a knife."


"What have you done?" The Lord will say,
On Judgement Day, on Judgement Day.
















 THE GENESIS CAT
(W Girt)


The Lord looked down upon His world, created fresh and new,
With soaring, shining mountain tops and gleaming seas of blue.
The lordly lions roaming free with tigers golden bright,
All very grand, magnificent, but somehow, not quite right.
He stroked His beard and mused awhile and thought of this and that,
'All these are far too big,' he said, 'I'll make a smaller cat;
To edge towards the fire at night, out of the chilly wind,
An independent animal, but needing human kind;
With fur so soft and warm to touch, but brimming full of guile,
With pansy-faced wee kittens to make the children smile.'
All that was very long ago, but still the cat's with us,
Aloof and condescending, but loving all the fuss.
You'll never, ever own a cat, as all cat lovers know,
He'll curl himself around your heart and never let you go.











HOLY 
( K MacVitie)

The peace and joy you give me, no words can ever tell,
The lessons that you teach me, in my heart will always dwell,
Your purrs bring forth divinity, to comfort, heal and bless,
Wondrous being, praise to you for your gracious loveliness















THE CAT’S CAROL
(Sister Letitia)
Tune: Once In Royal David's City

Come you cats of every colour
Kittens, too, of every size
See, the Lord who made the tiger
Lowly in a manger lies.
Praise him all his little tigers
Let your joyful purring rise.


Siamese and stately Persian
Homely black and Tabby gay,
Leave your cushions, leave your roof tops
Call a truce with mice today.
Swift and silent, velvet footed
Hasten now down Bethlehem way.


See, he smiles to see you coming
Mary welcomes you within.
Joseph with a friendly finger
Gently strokes your furry chin.
Ox and ass are there beside you
Sheep and camel peering in.
All creation sings his praises
Voices, music, sharps and flats
Join the chorus, cats and kittens
Praise him, just by being cats. 







Cats Are Wonderful Friends
 

Gentle eyes that see so much,
paws that have the quiet touch,
Purrs to signal "all is well"
and show more love than words could tell.
Graceful movements touched with pride,a calming presence by our side -A friendship that takes time to grow -Small wonder why we love them so.

Why do we call animals, Angels?


 Over these many years, as you can imagine, we have come up with an answer to the question about animals as angels. We explain that our definition of an angel animal springs from the Greek derivation for the word angel, or angelos. This word literally means messenger.

We believe (and have thousands of stories to back it up) that animals can be divine messengers who bring assurance to people, protection and consolation.
Because both animals and humans are souls, or divine sparks of God, clothed in physical form, they can serve as messengers for others. 

Mother Teresa once compared herself to a pencil God used for writing a love letter to the universe. Animals are delivering love letters too. What does yours say today?
