This chapter presents a brief response to Howard–Snyder's criticisms. The main focus of the response is on defending the central claim that there are two ways for something to be canine, feline, or divine, one of which guarantees only that the thing in question is part of a dog, cat, or God. It holds that the unity of God is preserved along with the divinity of the persons. Hence, nothing of significance hangs on whether a substance's inseparable parts are substances. The crucial fact is that these individuals compose one unique, indivisible individual which is a substance.

Keywords: Howard–Snyder; feline; unity of God; substance; divine
