The responses to my recent post asking for input on how neo-paganism and UU values coincide have revealed widely divergent views on the topic, from deep cynicism and pained responses to that cynicism to personal theological reflections on how earth-centered faith practices have enhanced others' UU experience.
I'm not sure how I will end up using the responses in my sermon, but I am certainly better-informed than I was a few days ago! And I'm very thankful to all who responded. The conversation is still open, and I'm hoping that the Favorite Son will add more of his thoughts to the melange.
As far as the cat situation goes, I have been researching making cat food, as Ms. Theologian has suggested, and I just came back from ACE hardware where I bought a 1 mil dropcloth which I plan to attach to the back of a coverlet, so that I can protect the bedcovers with something besides the vinyl-backed tablecloth which crackles noisily when moved.
In addition, the pheromone diffuser seems to be having a positive effect (as much as I can tell---all three are zonked out on the bed in there and have not had any fights on the bed that I know of). If there is another accident by anyone, well, I am not sure what my next step will be.
Thanks for all the kind thoughts and suggestions.
