All my life I have been a cat lover

All my life I have been a cat lover. September a year ago, when I was ten, a friend's cat had kittens. When I heard the news, I went to my friend's home immediately to see the kittens. I found a beautiful Persian one that I loved. I asked my parents if I could keep it, and they finally said yes.

When the kitten got older, it started its shedding stage. Sometimes after I petted the cat I would rub my eyes and sneeze. This kept continuing, so my dad said we would have to give the cat away. I decided to pray about it.

I thought to myself, "Our cat is one of God's creatures. God is all good, and His creatures reflect Him, so they give out good too." After that, the allergy went away and never came back again. When my dad and mom saw this healing that had taken place, they let me keep the cat after all!
