What God knows about pets—and us

Daniel had a kitten. He named her D'angelo. He liked that name. It was the name of a big circus lion, but D'angelo was not like a lion at all. She was tiny. She had white fur and two black spots—one on the tip of her nose and one on the tip of her tail.

Daniel loved D'angelo very much. But when D'angelo was a grown-up cat, she began to do something very strange. She scratched the fur around her neck and pulled it out. Daniel tried to make her stop, but when he wasn't looking, she scratched and pulled again. Daniel talked to his mom about this. He wanted to help D'angelo.

His mom reminded him of what he was learning about God in Sunday School. He learned names for God that helped him understand what God is like. One name for God is Mind. His mom found the book and the page where we can read this. The name of the book is Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. On page 469 it says, "Mind is God." Daniel could read it himself.
