If Animals Could Talk!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if animals could talk? Well, I have. Especially today!

One of our cats, Oliver, has been missing on vacation since September 26th! That's over two weeks! Every day we included his safe return in our prayers. Every other day, we went to our local SPCA. Did the "walking through the neighborhood" calling out his name, too. All to no avail. We've been so sad and worried.

Well, this morning, my husband heard a couple tiny "meows" at the back door. He went to the back door and there sat Oliver. Who looked up at my husband with "that look". If you have a cat, you know "that look". The look of "What! I didn't do anything!". He strolled into the house like everything was totally normal.

So, now we wish he could talk. We have so many questions, "Where have you been?", "Why were you gone so long?", "Did you enjoy your vacation?", "What did you eat?" (ok, maybe I don't want to really hear the answer to that one). Oh the questions!

Oh well, we'll never know the answers, but we are thankful for his return. God is so good!

We are so glad that Oliver was not hurt on his escape! He is a very handsome fellow.

I am glad that Oliver decided to grace you with his presence again! haha Cats are such stinkers. One of our cats, Rocky, did the exact same thing, and then came strolling in the door as if nothing was wrong.
