"Cat is not cause!"

Mortal mind—the counterfeit of God, the only Soul or Mind—claims to reverse the infinite law of good and so instigate disharmony. Allergies are one result of such supposed reversal. An allergy is a mistaken sense of relationship—the false suggestion that one idea of God can react with another.

In their real identity, flowers and animals are Soul's expression. Lovely blossoms radiate beauty, symmetry, fragrance, and color. Our pets express devotion, trust, affection. How could harm proceed from characteristics such as beauty and intelligent trust? Mrs. Eddy says, "What an abuse of natural beauty to say that a rose, the smile of God, can produce suffering!"
