Johnny's Mother looked out the window and noticed him "playing church" with their cat and dog.
He had the cat and dog sitting quietly; and he was leading music. She smiled and went about her work.
A while later, she looked again. Once more, he had the cat and dog sitting quietly, and now he was taking up the offering. Again, she smiled and returned to her work.
A little while later, she looked out yet again. This time, with the cat and dog again sitting patiently, Johnny was preaching away. She once more smiled and went about her work.
Shortly thereafter, she heard loud meowing and hissing, and she ran back to the open window. As she did, she saw Johnny baptizing the cat in a tub of water.
She called out, "Johnny, stop that! That cat is afraid of water!"
Johnny looked up at her and said, "Well, he should have thought about that before he joined my church!"
