Please excuse me for getting really serious for a change. As many of you know, I named Andy after St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland. My mother’s family – mother and father – both immigrated from Scotland, and Andy’s name is in honor of their origin.
St. Andrew was one of Jesus’ apostles and he is honored in many countries as an early missionary, often the first missionary for Christ. Poor little Andrew James Thomas, the Persian kitty! That’s an impossible load to put on a mere cat!
Andy’s just a little kitty.
There is a church in Kyiv named for St. Andrew. Historic, beautiful, in danger along with the rest of Kyiv from monsters from Russia. Monsters? Over-stating the case? Would normal people target a theater harboring a thousand women and children trying to survive war? Destroying historic churches would be a snap for such people. I hope I am wrong.
