A cat was so faithful that the woman could leave her baby
with it & go out to attend other matters. She always returned
to find the child soundly asleep with the cat faithfully
watching over him.
One day something tragic happened. The woman as usual,
left the baby in the “hands” of this faithful cat & went out
shopping. When she returned, she discovered rather a nasty
scene, there was a total mess. The baby’s cot was
dismantled; his nappies & clothes torn to shreds with blood
stains all over the bedroom where she left the child & the cat.

thinking. Take time to get the whole truth. Please, be patient with people lest u live to regret ur actions against them. Be quick to hear but slow to respond and become angry.
