The story and photos of Tigger and Annie were sent to us by one of our readers.  We are not sure of the source, but the touching relationship between these two animals is proof that animals have souls and spirits just as humans do.  (To enlarge the photo of Tigger and Annie, click on the photo)

"Tigger the cat loves to horse around with his big pal Annie - and play nuzzle the muzzle.  Their unusual relationship is the talk of the barnyard at the Victoria, Australia, home of contractor Jack Bellman.  (To enlarge the photo of Tigger and Annie, click on the photo)

"Tigger is a nasty old cat, who will bite and hiss and scratch, but he just melts around Annie," says Jack.  The paddock pals bonded immediately.  The 3-year-old feisty feline loves to jump on the rail fence for a tÍte-ŗ-tÍte with 2-year-old Annie.  (To enlarge the photo of Tigger and Annie, click on the photo)

"They have formed and incredible attachment," says their owner.  Tigger even sleeps in Annie's food bin.  Concludes and amazed Jack: "They are rest buddies."  (To enlarge the photo of Tigger and Annie, click on the photo)


From our experience, such relationships are not as unusual as most humans think.  Animals don't have the emotional and cultural hang-ups that humans do, and they let pure heavenly love happen.  These two possess the love and knowledge of the Lord that is needed to have peace on earth, just as Isaiah wrote in 11:6-9.  Perhaps Annie knows something about Tigger that Jack needs to learn.
