PETS WITH THUMBS

Two Famous Pets With Thumbs

Everywhere you go folks talk about “Holiday Shopping.” My thoughts were far away from Holiday shopping as I broke yet another finger nail trying to tote 20-40 lbs. bags of dog Kibble, canned pet food and Kitty Litter into an uncooperative, runaway cart. It was then that I wondered why  God didn’t give pets thumbs? They could tote their own stuff. At least hold the storm door or punch the garage Genie–I’ll do the heavy-lifting!

I distinctly believe I heard God laugh: “No…That’s your job… that’s why you got the thumbs!”

As I went over budget (once again) due to grabbing that cat toy (she probably won’t play with) and read the back label until my eyes crossed, pouring over the healthiness of yet another “healthy dog treat” (oxymoron?)… I was distracted just enough for the Holy Spirit to remind me that these little creatures are included in God’s love too; just like human children. Merry Christmas to all our fur-people great and small. As Tiny Tim of Dickens’ fame said: “God Bless Us… Everyone!”

Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, “Let the little ones come to me, and do not keep them away: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

Or… perhaps the real question is: WHY NOT MAKE RACCOONS “PETS”? Then, when feeding time comes, they just go to your trash can and let Nature take its course (working the lid off with those little thumbs of theirs).

LOL… Don’t we just love that commercial about the lady that opens the sliding door and say’s, “Here Kitty, kitty, come to bed with Momma,” as a long-clawed, wild raccoon strolls in? The tagline being that she REALLY needs glasses! Thumbs are handy and so are eyeglasses. Be Blessed!
