I Lost My Cat

I ask God to forgive me because I am mad at Him. My cat went missing a month ago. I was as close to him as if he were my son. I do not have children. He was such a big part of my life. I am mad at God for letting him go out of my life like this.

Jeff, hopefully you have found your cat by now. Also you can change his name to Prodical Son.
---Marcia on 8/20/07

Amen, Cynthia. Amen :)
---Mary on 8/20/07

Jeff-I'm sorry for the pain you are experiencing. No one can understand but you and God. DON'T listen to those people who say you can't get angry at God. They are like Job's comforters. God asks us to come to Him like little children. Naturally all children get angry at their fathers, it shows they have a deep relationship with their parent. God wants you to vent your emotions on Him rather than going to others. Getting another kitten could never replace the one that is missing.
---Cynthia on 8/19/07

Jeff - I am very sorry that you lost your cat and I know how much it hurts. I agree with Eloy .. why don't you get another little kitten .. it is best not to wait too long. You will really love the new one.
---Helen_5378 on 7/18/07

Continue to pray, and perhaps think about getting another kitty cat for a friend.
---Eloy on 7/18/07

My cat was missing for a week, I really really miss her....
---May_Lok on 7/17/07

Any news Jeff? Have you located your 'pal?'
Update us bro.
---NVBarbara on 6/23/07

You cannot blame God when things like this happen. Remember: Satan is alive and well and real. God lets bad things happen; he does not cause them to happen. My beloved cat Spice of 14 years died last November; I prayed feverishly for God to spare his life, but he died anyway. But I then thanked God for the wonderful 14 years that I did have with Spice. Can you imagine what a horrible world it would be if Satan had his complete, evil way?
---Gary_L. on 6/22/07

Kitty, we DO care a GREAT deal about missing children! Just post such a message and find out!
There are many animal lovers here as well and we sympathize with Jeff. I had a cat that I had to have put down, he was 19 years old and a real part of the family, he's missed!
---NVBarbara on 6/22/07

Emcee, your answer reminds me of another blog, my husband ran off. "Be prepared for an increase in the family....."
It happens. Big Dog Daddy runs off and brings home who knows what?!
---anonymous on 6/22/07

Jeff::Maybe your cat got a little tired & went in search of some Feline company she may yet return with an increase in your Family.So get ready to say sorry to God for being Mad.The call of the wild is instinctive,if you did not have her fixed.
---Emcee on 6/22/07

While God may be in control of everything, I'm sure he didn't reach down on earth and done something with your cat. Things happen to us in our life, that God hasn't done anything. Why are you mad at God? My kids had a wonderful pet Lab, he was the best dog. He came up missing. I didn't blame it on God. It isn't God's fault that my dog or your cat came up missing.
---Rebecca_D on 6/21/07

I find it ironic that the very next question after this one is from a man who lost his job. Talk about priorities being mixed up. Anyone who gets mad because their animal gets lost needs to think about how the animal got out of the house in the first place. It didn't just open the door and go out by itself. Don't blame God!
---Susie on 6/20/07

Oh brother. Too bad we don't care this much about missing children.
---Kitty on 6/19/07

We also must remember cats are hard to train. So if you have one keep an eye on him. There could be people that's using your cat as a way to get to you. Now ofcourse, We do not know for sure if this is the case.
---catherine on 6/19/07

ralph>>>You are right. How do we know what God wants? A 60 million dollar question, if you ask me. I have got to tell you it seems that God is not nearly as interested in ones happiness as He is making ones strong. Paul did write and say, "Let God make us strong, enduring all things [afflictions] and then we will truly be happy".
---catherine on 6/19/07

I agree, Ralph.
I know many only have a cat and they're like a member of your family.
But how would they cope if they lost a family member in a war, flood, fire, or standing along a parade route. There are so many opportunities to be mad at God if you choose to let your emotions fly. Why would you want to be mad at God and lose your peace.
---Charlene on 6/19/07

God has nothing to do with losing the cat or do or the camel, but many of you like to mix God with everything you do and or say. To me it's a disrespect towards God and it's a fanatic obsession.
---Caring on 6/19/07

Tragedies remind us that we can lose someone we dearly love.
A cat may have nine lives, but a human has only one.
---Charlene on 6/19/07

"God wants you to be happy." I see this statement a lot on the blogs. Just how do we know what God wants for any person? Maybe God wants this fellow to aquire some maturity as well as another cat. My cat went on a little venture once and I was bummed out, but he showed up again. I certainly wasn't mad at God or anything else. It's a cat, after all. All things in perspective. If it's been a month, maybe it's time to go to the shelter and give another cat a good home.

Jeff - I know how much you are hurting. I lost my little dog last month and it nearly killed me. The Lord did set me free quickly from the loss though. God is in control of whatever happened to your little cat. God knows exactly what happened to him, and He will do what is right by your cat. Be comforted in this, and trust the Lord to take the horrible hurt away too. Then go get yourself another darling little kitten. Take care and let Jesus comfort you.
---Helen_5378 on 6/18/07

Jeff have you done all the searching you can? Call the Humane Society, walk your neighborhood and call your cat's name. When you do that be very quiet and listen for a faint meow, often if cats are hurt or sick they'll go out and huddle behind bushes or hide. God wants you to be happy, He wouldn't snatch your cat. Cat's are very independant.
---NVBarbara on 6/18/07

Toby and Jeb, may I suggest going to your dictionaries and looking up the word: COMPASSION?! Jeff is already hurting and he doesn't need condemnation for his pain; he needs love and prayer--and oh yeah, compassion.
---Mary on 6/18/07

I am so sorry that you lost your cat. I have had to part with so many and have lost one but found her again. I will pray that the Lord will bring the cat home to you. Sometimes they just wander off for a while. I think it is there wild streak in them.

Take care let me know what happens.

God Bless

Jeb, that might work for you; I've never been able to make deals with God.
I'll do this and He'll do that.
There is no guarantee the cat will come back, none. If you know cats, like I know cats, they certainly will pack their bags and leave home for a better looking catfood at someone else's home.
---Raine on 6/18/07

Maybe god was jealous! Are you a christian?
The lord looks out for our well being! the same relationship you had with your cat,
Jesus wonts to have with you. Your bond with that cat was pretty strong. Repent, and the lord will send him back.
---JEB on 6/18/07

When a person uses the words, "Is it right to be angry at God?" he may be asking a different question. "Is it right to express anger at God?" These are not the same question.
The question usually arises in times of great suffering and loss. Disease threatens to undo all your dreams. Death takes a precious child from your family. Utterly unexpected desertion and divorce shake the foundations of your world. At these times people can become very angry, even at God.
---Toby on 6/17/07

Can a person get angry at God for every reason, and still be right? Was it right for Jonah to be angry at God's mercy on Nineveh? "God relented the disaster that he had said he would do to them, and he did not do it. But it displeased Jonah and he was angry" (Jonah 3:10-4:1). I assume the answer would be, No. We should not get angry at God for just any reason.

This is why being angry at God is never right. It is wrong - always wrong - to disapprove of God for what he does and permits. "Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?" (Genesis 18:25). It is arrogant for finite, sinful creatures to disapprove of God for what he does and permits. We may weep over the pain. We may be angry at sin and Satan.
---Toby on 6/17/07

God does only what is right. "Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments" (Revelation 16:7).

But many who say it is right to be angry with God really mean it is right to express anger at God. When they hear me say it is wrong to be angry with God, they think I mean "stuff your feelings and be a hypocrite." That's not what I mean. I mean it is always wrong to disapprove of God in any of his judgments.
---Toby on 6/17/07

I'm so sorry. I know how you feel. One time my cat was missing for several days and I was so worried! The neighbor found him in her herb garden one morning, munching on her cat nip plants. Now, every time he goes outside he heads straight for that garden! Cats usually disappear for a while, then come back. Keep calling him. Did you try shaking the food bag to see if he'll come? That always works with my cat.
---sue on 6/17/07

I'm sorry about your cat, Jeff, and pray the hurt heals soon. There's still a chance he may come back. My dog went missing for over a week awhile back. Turned out she went down the road to our local PetSmart (she loves PetSmart - we take her there every so often). She went in the automatic door and one of the clerks took her home and ran an ad in the paper. Luckily my dad spotted it and went and picked her up. So don't lose hope.

I was doing some work in a farmhouse where the owner gave her husband a pair of Jack Russel terriers for their 30th anniversary. They loved these dogs like their children. While leaving the job I ran over one of them. Can you imagine my despair as I carried him (dead) back to her in my arms? I think it was the lowest point of my life! Altho it was accidental,I could feel the supressed anger.
---1st_cliff on 6/17/07

It is not God's fault that your cat is missing. I have cats too and I know how you feel about them, they are like our kids. Be honest with God about how you feel and let Him help you. Maybe get another cat?
---maryj9396 on 6/17/07

I can certainly relate to this blog. My cat vanished in thin air, off my screen porch, a while back. I felt that I would die. I even called the police. Then just when I figured God had only loaned him for a little while to me he was back. It was a mystery and it still is. He just turned a year old.
---catherine on 6/17/07

Cats have minds of their own Jeff and tend to wander, don't take it out on God dear brother. I love my cat, he's so special and loving. I have lost other cats during my life and I missed them, but never thought of putting the blame on God. I had to have my 19 year old Tabby put down, THAT was the worst! Don't give up, he may turn back up, keep going outside and calling to him. I had a baby that was gone for 3 months and one day he came meowing at the back door! God bless.

I don't think God did anything to harm your cat. It would be the devil we should be angry at. He's the one who is resposnsible for it. I wouldn't doubt it that God has your kitty in a nice home somewhere and he will be just fine.
---john on 6/17/07

Your cat clearly had a mind of his own. All cats do. Someone killed my rabbit and threw it in the garbage can, but I'm not mad at God.
Pets are not people, even though we love them. Don't be mad at God over your cat and miss out on your next blessing. Go to the pound and find another cat.
---Raine on 6/16/07

I'm so sorry Jeff; God does care and understand--even when we're mad at Him. Most of us have been all too human, ourselves. Even some of the great men of the Bible. I'm just really sorry and hope God will heal your heart. Bless you.
---Mary on 6/17/07

I understand your pain and confusion. I love my critters and was heartbroken when my dog and cat died years ago. It is okay to be angry at God, as long as you tell Him how you feel and ask Him to help you work through your feelings. He loves you and will comfort you, when you allow His healing touch to embrace you. Seek Him now.
