"You'll pray for me? Great! I'll talk to my cat for you!"

"Expect the same results."

Talking to your cat CAN be therapeutic. (Ditto for prayer or other rituals.) Just keep in mind that, to borrow from Ivan Turgenev, it won't make 2+2 not equal 4.

Somewhat related, from The Atheist Pig:

“So how ya doing?” “Good. I had a nice talk with my toaster, and I really got some clarity and peace.” “What kind of nonsense is that?” “It's the same kind of nonsense as talking to an invisible magician in the sky.” “That's not EVEN CLOSE to what talking to God is like.” “Well, that's true. -- My toaster never asked me to behead anybody.”(click to enlarge)

And thanks, Daniel, for the cat goddesses page!
