Merideth, when she was around 2. We lived in the country then as we do now, and the best entertainment for that child was to carry a cat around the yard and play with it. We always seemed to have cats that would tolerate children warting them constantly. I can't remember either ever getting scratched or hurt in any way.
Isaiah 11:6The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.
