I love dogs. I have grown to love cats. But they do live in different paradigms.

As a pastor, priest, Imam, rabbi, minister, leader, etcetera, which one are you?

Or, which one is yours?

    I knew there was a reason I like dogs, but cats not so much! I can count all the dog pastors I’ve known on one hand, but the cats out number the hairs on my head and I’m lucky enough to still have all of it. LOL

    Not my childhood cat: since animals weren’t allowed in the house, she would sit outside my second-story window to be with me. She was the most nurturing physical presence of my high school years.

    To me, “dog” leaders are needy, lazy, one-track-minds; “cat” leaders are spunky, observant and feisty.

    But I know that’s not the point of this cartoon – which is a very important one! I love this blog. And I love cats. πŸ™‚

    I would describe my former pastors as snakes. Often curled up under rocks. Hard to handle. Venomous if threatened. Easily rattled. Constricting. Yeah, snakes. πŸ˜‰

    Like LJD, the cats in my life have always been comforting and loving, as have the dogs. Both species have been protective, too, but animals tend to like me, because I like them so much. Your point is accurate, though, David, when using the stereotypes of each species.

  5. ya it’s a stereotype… that’s the catch-22 of cartoons.

    Well, even the most well-meaning among us who choose to serve others have to be careful that we’re not selfishly getting our needs met through that service. On the surface, it may look admirable, but at some level is there some need that we’re looking to get met? A sense of importance or something else?
