One Sunday, in counting the money in the weekly
offering, the pastor of a small Florida church found
a pink envelope containing $1000. It happened again
the next week. The following Sunday, he watched
as the offering was collected and saw a little old
lady put the distinctive pink envelope in the plate.

This went on for weeks until the pastor, overcome
by curiosity, approached her.

"Ma'am, I couldn't help but notice that you put
$1,000 a week in the collection plate," he stated.

"Why yes," she replied, "every week my son sends
me money, and I give some of it to the church."

The pastor replied, "That's wonderful, how much
does he send you?"

The old lady said, "$10,000 a week."

The pastor was amazed. "Your son is very
successful; what does he do for a living?"

"He is a veterinarian, " she answered.

"That is an honorable profession," the pastor said.
"Where does he practice?"

The old lady said proudly, "In Nevada. He has two
cat houses in Las Vegas and one in Reno."
