Will the cats fall into the kingdom of heaven
On this occasion, wittily answered once an English theologian CS Lewis. To the question of one child about whether there would be cats in the Kingdom of God, he said: "I think that there may not be cats, but there will be cat-tales." That is, what a positive person gives to the cat will somehow be transformed in the Kingdom of God. We know from the Bible that animals have a mortal soul, unlike man. Nevertheless, the human connection with God and the connection of the animal of this world with man allows somehow to transform even a fallen, mortal nature. And in some form she may dock with a person in the Kingdom of God. Otherwise, the apostle Paul would not have written that all creature is collectively tormented and groans for man. So, despite the fact that we have objective data that nature cannot live today, not killing, not absorbing, not eating, not multiplying, in general, the apostle Paul considers this state abnormal.
The beauty of this world can somehow be transformed.Therefore, the creature will cease to suffer and moan.
