    Smile Do pets go to Heaven?

    One of my good friends once asked me if animals have souls
    and therefore if they can be saved and meet us in Heaven
    (she was concerned about her most beloved dog).

    I'm still not sure about the answer but I found this picture...

    Do pets go to Heaven?

    Absolutely...they do! It wouldn't be Heaven without them.

    I seriously doubt that Cats go there though.

    No Flames No Flames....just kidding about the doggone cats.

    I have it on good authority that dogs will be in heaven. I do not have a similar statement about cats. It is my personal belief that all pets go to heaven, and why not. They did not fall, but are like everything but humans in that they are affected by the results of the fall.

    I realize that I am getting very close to the edge of a theological discussion here. Anyone who wants to know more about the theology of my belief is welcomed to send me a PM. I will be happy to discuss it with you.

    There is an old story where a guy and has dog dies, they come to a set of pearly gates, the man there says you can come in, but your dog can’t, the guys says no thanks, won’t be heaven without my dog. Goes further to find a creaky wooden gate with a friendly old guy who says both of you are welcome to heaven, the other gate was a test.

    Twilight Zone: The Hunt. Written by Earl Hamner Jr.
    One of my favorite episodes.
    Opening Narration
    Narrator: "An old man and a hound dog named Rip, off for an evening's pleasure in quest of raccoon. Usually, these evenings end with one tired old man, one battle-scarred hound dog and one or more extremely dead raccoons, but as you may suspect that will not be the case tonight. These hunters won't be coming home from the hill. They're headed for the backwoods of the Twilight Zone."
    Closing Narration
    Narrator: "Travellers to unknown regions would be well-advised to take along the family dog. He could just save you from entering the wrong gate. At least, it happened that way once--in a mountainous area of the Twilight Zone."

    No cats don't go to heaven, they go to summerland to be with the pagans running and playing in the sunshine.
