Roger, I was so sorry to hear about how your neighbor was so mean and your fear for your cat. I did not respond sooner as my cat who was 16 years old had just died that morning. People who are mean are hurt people. Maybe no one has ever been kind to that person. Just be comforted in knowing Jesus loves you and so does all of us readers.
