They say the Bible mentions dogs 14 times, but doesn’t mention cats at all. I am not going to criticize the Bible, but I have also read that every attempt throughout history to eradicate cats has been followed by a plague. I think cats play a major role in our society keeping rodents and disease under control. Besides that, they are a peaceful pet. Some people don’t give them a chance. Dogs have also been part of our culture all the way back to antiquity and many scholars believe that not having dogs might have been part of the reason for the extinction of Neanderthal man. Who knows!
