From the biblical standpoint cats were not a big help for Adam in the beginning after he gave his cat the name "kitten". "But for Adam there was not found a suitable helper for him" (under them) Genesis 2:20. Much has changed since the paradise.
1. Physically and spiritually cats have become indeed real " helpers" today. Not only at home the domestic cats as friends and comforters but also in zoos as attraction they have become "helpers of Adam". They are supporting many men with jobs in pet shops and animal food production and zoos and serve as willing sacrifices in safaris.
Therefore we should be thankfully take us time for cuddling them as much as possible and take care of dieing out "siberian tigers" as well.
Many have not yet considered the role those "helpers" play for our spiritual wellness and that we should reserve time for them! Dont they give us a feeling of a "cosy home" after all?
2. In paradise for a perfect man a cat was not seen as real help. Man thought that he was perfect and cats not. But think about one fact: Animals have never been expelled from the garden eden, okay the sss :snake: snake was cursed (note: she was not guilty but misused by Satan), but only men have been explicitely expelled from Eden by Jehovah! So spiritually for God animals have always lived and remained in the paradise. They need not get into it once again, because they've never been expelled from paradise.
Even today they are living in the perfect state of being very close to Jehovah! Therefore after men was expelled from paradise they are since then even given a much bigger role as helper for Adam. Actually theologians think about giving animals a higher position in nature back. After all they live in paradise and men not. Or is it so that we already live in paradise but cant recognize it because we live in a simulation of an evil world?
Well men are admittedly mature and responsible and supposedly free in their decision to use their "reason", running and striving for ever more plans to shape the world, but in many respects they have lost a natural sense of goodness, kindness and love but princially lost their innocence, something that cats have always possessed in the state of "animal unreason" and with what they are an exemple for us and for what they deserve to live in their paradise for ever.
The bible is not a really closed book, it is open for interpretation and new scrolls are awaited yet for the new world. If you have any question about cats and dogs, sit down on your couch, take your pet and read the bible together with it. This helps much, think about that you are sitting next to a messenger of Jehovah, a messenger of the paradise.
P.S. Perhaps that was the reason why queen Cleopatra liked cats-eyeliners. :cat: :heart:
