Cat and Rat Buddies
Animal Stories from All-Creatures.org

This is another of those photo stories where pictures speak louder than words.  The relationship between these two children of God is proof that the peaceable kingdom of God can exist here on earth in the hear and now, if we really want it to.

Unfortunately, some people are so blinded by their worldly ways or hardness of heart that they fail to see the obvious window of hope that this relationship should give us all.  The person who originally sent the photo series that we received was such a person (we very much doubt that he/she was the caregiver of these two buddies).  This person berated the cat for not killing the rat, and entitles the series "For sale: one useless cat", and went on to sarcastically say how "proud" the cat's parents would be.  We have no way of knowing how the cats parents would feel, but we're sure that our Father in heaven is very proud, for as Isaiah says, this cat is full of the knowledge of the Lord.

Isaiah 11:6-9

6 And the wolf will dwell with the lamb,
And the leopard will lie down with the kid,
And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
And a little boy will lead them.

7 Also the cow and the bear will graze;
Their young will lie down together;
And the lion will eat straw like the ox.

8 And the nursing child will play by the hole of the cobra,
And the weaned child will put his hand on the viper's den.

9 They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD
As the waters cover the sea.
NASB
