Do earth-born animals go to heaven when they die? I would like to think so, but I can’t find a single verse to support it. Regardless, some appear to have a spiritual side.
I have four feral cats, but only one of them has a Biblical name: Abigail (I Samuel 25: 23-42). Actually, I did not give her a Biblical name deliberately. As a feral kitten, she lived in the parking lot of a shopping center and hid in the bushes near Boston Market. I caught her but didn’t know what to call her. Someone said, “Name her Abigail after Abigail Adams from Boston since you found her near Boston Market.” I nicknamed her “Abby.” She answers to either name with a slight twitch of her ear–then returns to napping or making mischief. (She has a passive-aggressive personality, which is why I’m the only adult that likes her.)
She loves computers and books. Although she cannot read, Abby edits my work, and I have newsletters (published before I caught her typos) to prove it. Spiritual or not, Abigail always ends up near–or on top of–the number one best-seller.
