Kitten Protects Her Young

Written by Luz Leigh - 20 June 2008

If you follow my writings, you will remember that about ten days ago I wrote "Are You a Kitten?" in which I related something about the cat who lives in my back yard. Kitten is being used by the Lord to teach me some valuable lessons about life.

She is a small cat but has a strong will to live and to protect her young. Yesterday I had placed her morning meal near the back door and was standing at the kitchen sink washing dishes. I know ... hard to conjure up that sight; I do it so seldom. All of a sudden I heard a dog yelp and saw three stray dogs run past the window. Then the funniest sight happened. There was Kitten, all fuzzed up, every hair on her body and tail standing out, looking like the cats we see in cartoons when they are upset about something. She was in hot pursuit of those dogs. All were big dogs but not a match for this little momma cat.

She was not in the mood to share her breakfast, nor did she want those strays around her babies, who were hiding nearby. She makes it a point to keep those babies hidden and in a safe place.

By the time I could grab my gun and get out the back door, the dogs were nearly a block away, still running. Kitten's hair had not fallen back into place, but she was a little calmer. I complimented her on her courageous action and returned to the kitchen. Kitten finally finished her meal.

My thoughts went to the difference between Kitten and some of the human "mothers" we hear about. Those who drop their newborn infants in a dumpster or try to flush them down the toilet. Or when the children are a little older, these baby-makers (they are not mothers) abuse the little angels or allow others to do so. Animals are born with the instinct to protect and provide for their young. More and more it seems human females seem to be losing sight of what that "thing" is ... that living, breathing infant, to which they gave birth ... made in the image of God Himself.

Here in Texas, and maybe other states, if a mother simply cannot or will not take care of her baby, she can, without fear of prosecution, leave that baby at the doorway of a hospital or at a fire station where it can be found and given a chance to live. The baby can be given proper medical attention and a home can be found for it. But, do all these women take advantage of this? No, they continue to dispose of the babies as if they were just a piece of garbage.

When I saw Kitten chasing those dogs, my heart overflowed with love and admiration for God's creature. She was willing to risk her life to protect her young.Any one of those dogs was large enough to have killed her.

Our Lord GAVE His life to protect us from eternal death and provide us with eternal salvation. When we fully trust in Him, we have no fear from things or people who might harm us. We cannot be separated from Him. The apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Rome, words that apply to us today, the following:

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 NIV
