    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."
