What an amazing video! You gotta give that cat a lot of credit for attacking a much larger dog.
A couple of questions occur to me:
1. Would my cat rescue me if a similar situation happened? I’m ashamed to answer, “Probably not!” This in light of my blog back on January 25 entitled “Requiem for a Pounded Cat.”
2. Is anyone else worried that some crazy parents might set up such a situation just to get this kind of video and publicity? I’m no longer surprised at what people do. Don’t misunderstand me — we should be outraged at any form of child abuse. I just worry that someone is out there who says, “Say, Mary Jean. We could do that with Oscar! Wanna’ help me set up the camera?”
3. Can we talk about child abuse for a second? What would be one of the worst forms of child abuse before God? Wouldn’t it be — not telling your children about Jesus? I talked with a father not too long ago who said, “Oh, we don’t take our children to church. We want them to make up their own minds about spirituality without us imposing our view!” I thought to myself, “You are already ‘imposing’ your view by not exposing your children to the gospel!” God holds parents responsible to raise up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord!
