Adorable! I've also read about a devout dog that lives near the cathedral in Gniezno, Poland, and attends Mass with an attitude that shows he really understands it.

I think that a cat is always a nice addition to a home, business or place of worship. I am glad that the cat appears to be well cared for. I wish he could have surgery for his crossed eyes, though. I don't think God watches over just humans. I firmly believe that he gives special attention to the most vulnerable, to include animals.
