It is reported that the following addition to the Book
of Genesis was discovered in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
If authentic, it would shed light on the question,
"Where do pets come from?"

And Adam said, "Lord, when I was in the garden, you
walked with me everyday. Now I do not see you anymore.
I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember
how much you love me."

And God said, "No problem! I will create a companion
for you that will be with you forever and who will be
a reflection of my love for you, so that you will know
I love you, even when you cannot see me. Regardless of

new companion will accept you as you are and will love
you as I do, in spite of yourself."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam.
And it was a good animal. And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he

loved him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased.
And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian
angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become
filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock
and he believes he is worthy of adoration. Dog has
indeed taught him that he is loved, but no one has taught
him humility."

And the Lord said, "No problem! I will create for him a
companion who will be with him forever and who will see
him as he is. The companion will remind him of his
limitations, so he will know that he is not worthy of

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat
would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat's
eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being.
And Adam learned humility.

And God was pleased. And Adam was greatly improved.

And Cat did not care one way or the other.
