In case of rapture, this pet will be left un-manned

In what may be the coolest scam I’ve heard of in years, an atheist with an entrepreneurial spirit (can one have any spirit if one is an atheist?) is selling pre-paid pet care services to Christians who think the rapture is near.

This brings to mind several questions:

Do dogs go to heaven?

If they don’t, do I really want to go to heaven myself?

If the rapture doesn’t come, do the Christians get their money back?

If the rapture does come, but a client finds to his surprise that he wasn’t taken, does he get his money back?

If the rapture comes, and the Christian wasn’t taken, but the dog was, does the atheist take care of the Christian instead?

If the rapture comes, while the atheists are taking care of your pets, can I have your house?

    I am atheist, and I consider myself ‘spiritual,’ in that I don’t believe in an actual spirit or heaven/hell, etc., but I absolutely believe in good karma, and positive vibes, and treating the Universe and its inhabitants with some respect. Does that help?
