The wicked man flees although
no one pursues him; but the just man, like a lion, feels sure

Kateri, felis felis byzantina
Mailing address for both parishes:
I had a frustrating experience trying to teach Kateri how to
genuflect. She likes to wander into church from time to time.
I dont mind that, as long as she is reverent. I saw her
in church recently and asked her, Did you remember to genuflect?
She had no idea what I meant. So, I demonstrated for her. Then
I tried to get her to do it. I said, Okay, face the tabernacle.
Now, stand up straight on your hind legs, fold your front paws
together, put all your weight on your left hind leg, then touch
the floor with your right knee, then get up. Over and over
again, she fell on her face. It was a disaster! Finally, I gave
up and told her just to stand and make a deep bow! I think she
might be a Byzantine cat.
