I love it! I never tried to baptize a cat, but I learned several of the other bits of wisdom by experience!
It reminds me of a story told me by a friend. As her mother chatted with the next neighbor, she asked my friend Lyle to run home and check on her 4-year-old brother. This was in a community of small farms. As Lyle neared home, she spotted her brother Frank stirring something in the big washtub with a stick. When she arrived on the spot, she saw that he was making a whirlpool in the big tub of water. The kittens were swimming as fast as they could.
