The Rural Virginian

  • Sometimes pets are going to demand attention

    Q: Is it weird that my cat likes to sit on my lap while I go to the bathroom? Every time I go in there, he comes running and waits for me to sit down. Is this normal? Should I stop the behavior? I’ve tried closing the door when I go in, but he meows on the other side and scratches at the door. I rent so I don’t want him destroying the paint. I don’t mind him coming in, but wonder if I’m encouraging something that could be a problem later. Do other animals do this? I’ve heard of cats crawling in front of a newspaper or across a computer keyboard, but this seems like a very strange place to try and get my attention.

Grace & Glory Tackles Hunger

“When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.” -from the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 14.
