BORIS KITTY – Boris lives with his human parents in Whispering Pines. He is joined in his many adventures by two cats (Montana and Taffy), two dogs (Buddy and Fred), one squirrel (Yuki) and of course his best friend, God. If you are new to the Boris Kitty series, read them in the order below, which takes you from his adoption forward. All the Boris Kitty stories were written by Harrison Woodard and were illustrated by Donna Rosin.

#1 The Adoption Miracle – Sometimes we expect instant answers to our prayers. But we must remember that God is in complete control of the situation and his timing might not be the same as ours. In this story, Boris learns that he must patiently wait for God to answer his prayer.

#2 The Perfect Home – What do you do when bad things happen? Do you worry, or are you confident that God can take any difficult situation and use it for good? In this story, Boris learns that he may have to go back to the shelter. He doesn’t realize that God is at work preparing a perfect home just for him.

#3 The Best Christmas Gift – Every December we celebrate the greatest gift ever given, Jesus, God’s only Son. In this third installment, Boris gets so caught up in the excitement of the holidays that he forgets to get a gift for his parents. Noel, an Angel, helps him understand that there are more important things than material gifts.

#4 A Friend For Boris – God knows that we need friends and companionship. His great plan for our life includes fellowship with others. In this story, Boris explores his new neighborhood looking for friends. He is pleasantly surprised by the friend that God sends.

#5 Montana’s Home – Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he eats for a lifetime. Boris acts out this parable by helping a homeless cat not only with his immediate need for food, but also helping him find a home that will provide all his needs. We must remember to do both for our neighbors, provide their immediate needs as well as introduce them to the source for everything they need.

#6 God Made Today – Sometimes the cares of the world make us forget that God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. We should be thankful every day for His love and concern. That is the message that Boris shares with his friends in this story. We should enjoy every day, because God makes each one.

    I love your site and use it often in doing my Kid’s Church lessons. It would be very helpful if you had a search button. For example when doing a lesson on forgiveness I could type the word in and you would give me the titles of all the stories that pertain to forgiveness.
    Thank you for making you creative writings available for use. May God bless you mightily in your life and work.

      Thanks for the suggestion. I added a search bar in the first sidebar. It is a WordPress widget, so hopefully it will produce satisfactory results. I will test it and also search for any better alternatives.
