Christian Cats: Baptism or else doctrine

Paul Patton writes:
The comment of my friend, Dave Rosenbaum, reminds me of the time our youngest son, Joel Patton, tried to baptize our Siamese cat in the commode. The cat was quite resistant and Joel ended up with a few scratches and as much water on himself as the cat. When I advised Joel that the cat may not have wanted to be baptized, he replied, "If he didn't want to be baptized then he shouldn't have joined my church." - Paul Patton

Comment: Appreciated 911 call/Code Red Alert at 10:54CT

Dick and Mary Knight
Ed, Dick and I just received the call (email received at 10:54CT, Thursday, March 7, 2013) from Greg Thomas informing us of problems with the 911 phone line. He gave us an alternate number - 384-6464. At the end of the call, Greg apologized for calling so late at night. No apology necessary, Greg. We appreciate all of your calls--especially when the topic is so important. An alternative to a troubled 911 line could save lives. Thank you--and feel free to call any time!! - Dick and Mary Knight
Thanks - I thought it worth the wake up, too. I was one of several who didn't understand that there was no emegency now, but that the center had experienced trouble with its lines - but the 270-384-6464 was handling the calls like mine graciously and explained the situation. We're blessed to have personnel like her, I thought. - EW

Wonders if Egypt Church cats are Coptic Cats?

Comments re article 58075 Dave Rosenbaum sends advice on Egypt Christian cats

Thurston Sullivan writes:
Ed, Could these Egypt Christian Cats be Coptic Cats? --Thurston Sullivan
Thanks for the astute question, Mr. Sullivan: I can't answer - the only cats I am well versed on are simonized cats, the cross eyed prone kind. Someone in Nocturnal CM Land will know, I know. Thanks for asking. And an aside, thanks for teaching me everything I know about journalism in the days when you were Chief Mimeographer on Hill Topics at Lindsey Wilson, and I held the next most important post on campus as your assistant. We were the envy of everyone of the other 142 students enrolled that year. -EW

Two Cats at Egypt Church

Paul Patton writes:
On Wednesday night two beautiful cats came to prayer meeting and Bible study at Egypt Christian Church. One is black and white and the other has the color and markings of a Siamese cat. Both are wearing collars and appear to be healthy and well cared for. They liked the church so well that they were still there today (Thursday, March 7, 2013). Call Paul Patton at 270-789-8109 for additional information. Hopefully the owner can be located. - Paul Patton

Almost 2 dozen birthdays today - Check them two ways


If you know of a birthday we missed for today, for someone in Adair, Casey, Cumberland, Green, Metcalfe, Russell or Taylor Counties of KY, please send it using any Contact/Submit button - Now. We'll do our best to add it to the list. We'd love to have 40 total entries for March 7, 2013, before the day is over. - CM

Almost everyone who reads CM checks the Birthdays every day. It's just part of a quick routine. Today's birthday list is big, with an anniversary, over 20 birthdays, and several In Memory Birthdays.

If you have a bit more time, you can see birthdays listed for two months at a time, at Birthdays and Anniversaries This Month repeated for the next month as well. This is the place to check to see if a birthday is already listed, if a change has not been made because of a divorce or death or change of name, for duplications - please tell us about those - and, most of all missing entries.

Once posted, entries are scheduled to repeat, year after year, as posted, until we are notified otherwise.


Birthdays are made possible by our advertisers. The longest running Birthdays advertiser is Joyce's Hallmark. We appreciate the support, and hope readers do as well, by dropping by on special occasions and letting them know. - CM

David Burton Beagles have returned

David Burton writes:
Just wanted to let you know my beagles are home now. Thanks! - David Burton
Thanks That's great news. We know, from all appearances, that the dogs came home on their own. Just hoping these beagles are 1/1000th as smart as their owners and read on CM that they needed to go home. Dogs do amazing things.

And a reminder, there are dogs lost and dogs found and need to be reunited with their owners in CM Animals. We hope you'll look, and thank the paid advertisers who make the service we take for granted - an expected part of life in Adair, Casey, Cumberland, Green, Metcalfe, Russell, and Taylor Counties. - CM
