One Sunday, in counting the money in the
weekly offering, the pastor of the Granville
Presbyterian church found a pink envelope
containing $1,000. 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 asked, "That's wonderful, how
much does he send you?"

The old lady replied, "$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 honourable profession," the pastor
said. "Where does he practice?"

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