This is a cat with "cat" spelled in on its side in different-colored fur. You know, maybe Adam didn't do such a bad job naming all the animals after all. Except for hippopotamus. He definitely dropped the ball on that one.
Once somebody points it out, it is obvious - the word stands out a mile.'
Tabbies have an 'M' marking on their forehead, between the eyes, with various legends suggesting why this is the case.
One suggests that the Virgin Mary made the mark of her own initial out of gratitude after a tabby snuggled up to the baby Jesus in the manger to stop him from shivering.
And an Islamic legend says that the Prophet Mohammed had a tabby called Muezza that saved his life by killing a snake which had crawled up his sleeve.
When the cat later fell asleep on his arm, he cut his sleeve off so as not to disturb the cat.
From that day on, all tabbies were born with the 'M' marking to signify that Mohammed held the animals in high esteem.
Oh snap -- cute cat and bible study knocked out in a single post? Put that in your hymnal and sing about it! Now, where are the free donuts? I heard there'd be free donuts after the service. No donuts -- what were you thinking? That one little bite of Jesus isn't gonna hold me till lunch!
Hit the jump for two more of the are you sure that isn't "car"?
Thanks to Karen, who has a dog with "rabbit" in its fur. Haha -- nice one, God.
