SMOKEY IS OUR GRAY CAT. He has a little bit of white on him. He loves to hang out inside and outside our house. This is the story of his healing from my perspective. It brought new meaning to me about God's loving care of His creation, including animals. Truth really does communicate with love and healing to all creatures.
Two summers ago I was outside with our dog, Bolo, talking with a neighbor who had recently adopted a dog from an animal shelter. Our dogs were getting along well and had played briefly together. Suddenly the neighbor's dog took off like a shot, headed toward my house. (It may be the fastest I've ever seen a dog run!) My neighbor mentioned that he "must be after something." With horror I realized that "something" was Smokey, who was innocently hanging out in the garden area on the side of our house. He never saw the dog coming. Bolo also ran to see what was happening.
We hurried to the scene, yelling at the dogs, and by the time we got there Smokey was fighting back against the neighbor dog's attack as best he could. He managed to get away to seek cover behind a nearby fence. My neighbor felt terrible and had had no idea that their new dog would harm a cat.
