Pope Benedict – causing me to reevaluate my genuine dislike of the feline species..

I don’t know if this one is photoshopped too, but I definitely see kitsch potential in the theme… Pope Benedict with kitties.

    It’s Photoshopped.

    Remember he’s only infallible when he speaks ex cathedra in matters of Faith & Morals. This means he may bein error about felines (unless he’s speaking about the “cat”echism)…

    Hm.m.m.mmmm  I am a former genuine hater of the feline species.  They do grow on you. Much less needy than a dog.

    This is totally not photo shopped.  I believe!  Yeah.  Can I get an Amen!

  • Kim Whelan

    How can you tell it is photo shopped?  I love how content the cat looks

    Bogus as a $3 bill. But cute all the same.

  • You must love cats. See, the Pope is teaching this ex CAThedra to the CATholic Church!

      I kid you not: At my Baptist high school thirty years ago, they brought in a speaker who preached from some passage in the Old Testament about a leopard (in Daniel or Ezekiel?), then claimed that the leopard represented something really bad (the devil or the antichrist or something) and then claimed that “Catholic” means “Cat-holic,” which means “addicted to the cat,” which means that Catholics are followers of the “leopard” from this passage. He was serious, too.

    Papa Bene looks so tired. My heart is so full of concern for him, but I know Our Lady will help him and Our Lord will provide what he needs. Do you know how his health is?

    Unfortunately, this one is also photoshopped.  Here’s a link to the original:

    Ooooh, we lost our kitty earlier this month. I do so dearly miss having a cat curled up in my lap.

  • Karen

    It may be photoshopped, but the Pope does indeed like cats.  One more reason to adore him. 🙂

  • “The Catholic Church’s relationship to Judaism as taught by the Second Vatican Council and the interpretations and developments of that teaching by subsequent popes, “are binding on a Catholic,” said the Vatican official …”

    So they wish.

     The Pope is all like: “Why do they always sit on the lap of those who are allergic?  Now if I pet it, I will be sneezing through the entire Mass after crossing myself.”
