This was one of our cats who lost the game of chicken:
no more outside cats.
This is our first pug Harriet
It's an interesting thought that God loved His creatures so much, He had Noah build an ark big enough for them to go on in this world. It wasn't the animals who sinned against God, except ye old snake.
"Cursed are you more than all the cattle,
And more than the beasts of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And dust you shall eat
All the days of your life;
And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman."
The animals did not escape the curse of Adam & Eve's sin. They too were kicked out of the Garden because Adam and Eve had disobeyed and ate from the fruit of which God had said,
"You shall not eat from it, or touch it, lest you die."
