sorry, but this is so not a big deal story…
several years ago, my male cat was found in the Lubavitcher shul where we davened, around the corner from our house. at the same time, his ‘wife’ was giving birth to a litter of kittens in my daughter’s room, in a box, under a portrait of the Lubavitcher Rebba, zt’l.
I PROMISE this is a true story!!April 29, 2011 2:41 pm at 2:41 pm #983599
What does the Lubavitcher Rebbe have to do with your cat and her kittens, always here?April 29, 2011 2:42 pm at 2:42 pm #983600
From the link:
He stopped near the seat of the Burshtein Rebbe Shlita, who attempted to scare the cat away, but it refused, and …It remained until after Kedusha, after which it exited the Shul.
The cat didn’t stay until after aleinu??? That is surprising! Even cats are trying to get out early because of “work” these days! Ah shande!
What I don’t understand is, you can’t move around during kedusha, so why would the Rebbe try to get it to move?April 29, 2011 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #983601
the ‘father’ was in a Lubavitcher shul, the ‘mother’ was giving birth under a portrait of the Rebba.
what’s not clear to you?? (both were my cats).April 29, 2011 3:46 pm at 3:46 pm #983602
There’s a famous story of a pigeon that flew into a yeshiva in England and refused to leave despite all the efforts of the bochurim. Someone went to the Rosh Yeshiva and said “Efsher it’s a gilgul ?”. The Rosh Yeshiva replied “Efsher it’s a foigel (bird) ?”.April 29, 2011 3:53 pm at 3:53 pm #983603

um…i have a story too, just it doesnt have some wow ending, like that no one moved and everyone kept davening…2 years ago in camp a bear walked into the shul while everyone was davening shemoneh esrei…i think you can all imagine the ending!!! 😉April 29, 2011 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #983613
once there was an ant on the floor in my Shul
it walked around for a while and then i didnt see it anymoreApril 29, 2011 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #983614
i actually have a lot more amazing insect stories, but theyre all pretty similar to the one i posted above.April 29, 2011 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #983615
Maybe it was just there for kaddish..April 29, 2011 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #983616
i think it was a gilgul of another ant that i saw a few weeks earlier that i stepped on.
perhaps it wanted to give me a chance to ask for mechilah.April 29, 2011 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #983617
R moderator 80,
and you missed your chance 🙂April 30, 2011 11:49 pm at 11:49 pm #983618
Goq: Your meowel joke was for sure up to scratch. It was the best post on this thread by a whisker, and other posts just couldnt cat-ch it . But why shouldnt the cat come in to shul anyway; they didnt have any claws in their agreement to stop it? Just because it was a good-fur-nothing? If it became a member of the shul would make hisssstory. But it went away eventually and thats a purrrfect ending to the tail. So I’ll wish you all a kitten voch.May 1, 2011 2:04 am at 2:04 am #983619
Perhaps the cat wants the amud because he is saying kaddish for his cousin the ant.May 1, 2011 2:29 am at 2:29 am #983620
very cute post, Shticky Guy 😉May 1, 2011 2:51 am at 2:51 am #983621
Shticky Guy – good post!May 1, 2011 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #983622
Thank you, thank you. You never know, I may grow up one day.May 1, 2011 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #983623
Now, if your female cat was found in the Lubavitcher shul where you davened, and if her ‘husband’ was giving birth to a litter of kittens in your daughter’s room, under a portrait of the Lubavitcher Rebba, I’d be impressed (and I’d even switch sides).May 1, 2011 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #983624
cherrybim~ ha ha.
at least with my story, I have witnesses, & it’s not fiction 😛May 1, 2011 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #983625

What’s not clear is why one would choose to own both male and female cats when it could cause a kitten problem.October 28, 2013 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm #983630

@pixelate – LOL. 😀 I’ve never read HP, but I did see the first couple of minutes of the first movie, so I got your reference (I think)!October 29, 2013 1:22 am at 1:22 am #983635
rebyidd23- ‘What’s not clear is why one would choose to own both male and female cats when it could cause a kitten problem.’
hi! we chose to have the male because there was a mouse in our house; we got him as a kitten.
as he got older, he went outside & he brought the female home w/ him; they would hang out on our porch together.
we thought she was pregnant & kept her. she didn’t give birth until maybe a year later (?)= we were wrong, she wasn’t pregnant *then*, but we kept her.
we haven’t had cats in years now because the kittens were climbing on the dining room table & onto my husband’s seforim.
