Lately the world seems so cold and unkind to me. Is it just me or is it really cold and cruel?
We decided we didn’t want to keep Joey, the cat, but much to our dismay the lady we talked to and got him from (which is actually an adoption center) said we “didn’t give him enough time.” She said, “a week isn’t long enough for a cat to get adjusted.” Not long enough?! She said it took them 3-4 weeks to be able to brush him, change his litter, etc. So If I’m catching her drift, which is a cold one, that means she wants us to wait 3-4 weeks before we know we don’t want him?! I’m sorry, but my blood sugar has gone from being in control to spiralling out of control; I can no longer sleep in past 4:30 in the morning; and lastly I have to put double stick tape on practically everything in Mom’s bedroom so he doesn’t climb on it!
I gave up on training Joey when he decided to sneak in and get his own treats that I used as rewards. I also gave up on thinking he was the cat for us when he started clawing at me when I tried to brush is fur out; he has tons of mates and tangles! I also gave up thinking he was our cat when he bit Mom on the hand at least thrice! No, no cat that is going to stay with us will bite or claw at us!
If God is for us, why does it seem like everyone else is against us lately? If I am being punished now for loving God, then my reward in heaven had better be the best ever! Is it a cold, cruel world out there; or is it just me?
