And Now For Some Humorous Truth

 The Story of Adam & Eve's Pets

Adam and Eve said, 'Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us.'

And God said, I will create a companion for you that will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves.'

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve.

And it was a good animal and God was pleased..

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail.

And Adam said, 'Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal.'

And God said, 'I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG.

And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and
was a companion to them and loved them.
And they were comforted.

And God was pleased.
And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said, 'Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well.

And God said, I will create for them a companion who will be with them and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration.

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.

And Cat would not obey them. And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's eyes, they were reminded that they were not the supreme beings.

And Adam and Eve learned humility.

And they were greatly improved.

And God was pleased..

And Dog was happy.

And Cat . . .

didn't give a shit one way or the other.
A shout out to my good and lasting friend Barb for emailing this gem.


  1. I wonder why this gem was left out of Genesis. 'Cause it is Truth.


  2. Having shared my life with both cats and dogs, I would have to say this is the Truth.

  3. Classic. Hope you enjoy the updated version of: How to give a cat a pill, illustrated.


  4. Being owned by two cats at the present time, I can with authority say" "This is absolute truth"

  5. Could some one please send Papa Razi and your nearest Bishop cats for Christmas?

  6. Dennis, Papa Razi is a cat lover. Rumor has it he has at least one in his apartments which is strictly verbotten. Plus he is reputed to have fed Rome's stray cats and had some walk with him on the way to the Vatican from his apartment when he was just Cardinal Ratzinger. He truly is a big time cat lover. It's probably why I cut him more slack than I would otherwise.

  7. p2p, that link is utterly hysterical. I Truly do have to admit giving pills to cats is a test of ingenuity and patience.

  8. Challenge yourself. Google First Scandal.

  9. I love this story, but I cannot see the Photos, Why?
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Spain, I read regularly this blog, congratulations and thank you very much for all.

  10. Merry Christmas to you too Ana A. It could be the browser you are using. Some of the photos have a tad bit of animation and that might cause your browser to fail to load any of them.
