I loved smoking marijuana to get inspiration for my artworks. But one day I smoked too much and began to see my house cats having wings and flying around, and one of them even smiling me. It scared me a lot. I thank the Virgin of Zapopan for this hallucination didn’t last long. Now I smoke only once a week, and only two puffs at a time. There are no hallucinations after that.

In 1939, my house was flooded with rats. I didn’t know how to get rid of them. Then my friend gave me two cats. I implored Saint Pancras, and the cats got done with the rats. I give infinite thanks for that.

It happened once, when the night was falling, an UFO landed right in front of don Juan Sanchez’ house. Two strange beings came out to take the cat, but the owner gave a tremendous blow to one of them. The second one saw his associate injured and wanted to grab the cat but don Juan didn’t let him. Then both of them ran to their flying ship. Thank you, Virgin, for such a great result.

Dominga Ruiz was alone with her cats when an abusive robber paid her a visit. He threatened her with death, and she implored Saint Teresa whom she thanks, with fervent devotion, because her cats defended her, and the robber got badly screwed and ran away.

I wanted to impress my neighbor whom I was attracted to. I climbed up a tree to save her kitten, totally forgetting that I have a fear of heights. I thank the Holy Child of Atocha because the firefighters arrived to bring me down, since I was so scared I couldn’t move. The cat meanwhile came down by itself giving me a great embarrassment in front of the people and the girl. I promise not to pretend to be brave anymore to avoid being a ridicule.

I give infinite thanks to Saint Anthony the Great, with this humble retablo, because I fulfilled my dream of opening my own hotel for stray and abandoned doggies and kitties. I’m filled with great satisfaction to help them to find new families where they receive love and care they deserve.

My daughter and I were having refreshments in the garden when our cat, while catching butterflies, pushed a flower pot that fell right on my head. I was seeing double and burry for few days after that. I though I’d go blind, and I prayed Saint Lucy. She worked a miracle, and my vision recovered. Now I see well again, and I thank for that.

Thanks for nothing happened to us that night when the skeleton came.

It happened so that miserable coronabitch got into my little daughter’s house. Thanks, Virgin, for she didn’t have it very bad and for she has her kitten Jose Jose who keeps her a company and her roomie who looks after her. I send her my blessings and my prayers from far away (although, she’s not a believer) and I hope to hug her as soon as she completely recovered.

I give due thanks to Saint Paschal Baylon, because my kitchen almost got burnt when I threw tomatoes to the boiling lard. It produced fire was so huge that even my cat was frozen with fear. I thank for nothing serious happened at the end and the sauce even turned out to be very good.

Regino Suarez wanted to impress his neighbor and climbed a pole to save a cat. He’s infinitely thankful, with this retablo, to Saint Francis because he didn’t fell down, although he got scratched all over, but the girl granted him her friendship.

On a very calm night, my cats that were outside suddenly became anxious and scared. First I didn’t get why, but then I looked in the sky and saw two witches flying on their brooms. They didn’t come with good intentions, they were fighting with my cats. I grabbed a stick and scared the witches as best I could and saved my pets. Thanks, Virgin.

One very calm night, when I was going to bed, I heard a very big noise. I opened the window, I saw a spaceship and two green aliens. They had bad intentions because one of them got into the house and tried to grab my kitten. Fortunately, my husband Amador was near and he helped me to defend the kitten. I kicked them with a stick, and they ran fast to their ship. Thanks, Virgin, because it was like a dream.
