In my experience, cat's do listen... when they feel like it. At least you get some response from a cat. ;) :D I was a Christian for years. Went to Church every Sat & Sun. bible studies, Sunday school, said my prayers every night. NEVER ever had a single one answered. And I only got evasive answers when asked why. Then my best friend collapsed on the way home from school & I prayed like never before! And he died. So now I know god is either an evil bastard or doesn't exist.
