Facial scratches from cat gone quickly

This is adapted from a testimony originally posted during The Mother Church’s online Wednesday testimony meeting.

I’m grateful for the spiritual fact that all of God’s creation dwells in harmony and that His ideas can only bless each other. Even our pets can feel the harmony and love of God. 

Not long ago, as I was clipping the claws on one of my cats, Xena, she gave me a warning meow. Since I had only one claw left to clip, I decided to go ahead and finish. Xena didn’t like that. She turned and scratched me on both sides of my face. My initial reaction was to hold her out in front of me to keep her from doing it again. But she became very upset, so I gently put her down without scolding her. I felt compassion for her.
