‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (According to Cats)

Standard

‘Twas the night before Christmas

and all through the house

all the creatures were stirring.

Even the mouse!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

in hopes that St. Claws soon would be there.

Mom in her kerchief and I in my cap

had just settled down for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn arose such a clatter,

I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear

but a miniature sleigh

and one old horse.

All the reindeer were sick

so Santa had to rely

on one old horse

that just couldn’t fly.

When Santa was let in

through the front door,

he immediately scared

the cats on the floor.

The cats were excited

to see what they’d get

as Santa delivered the gifts

to each pet.

Having finished his work,

Santa went to the door.

He climbed in his sleigh

and started to snore.

As the horse moved on

and was soon out of sight,

Santa was dreaming about the catnip

he would have later tonight.

Hope you enjoyed this. Want to wish each one of my readers a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful 2017! God bless each and every one of you.

Good Human Imitation

Standard

Oliver was his name; imitation was his game. Or, at least, he thought so! His human family thought he was pretty funny, but they didn’t realize what he was trying to do. He thought about all the animals he had ever seen in books or on the TV and thought he could imitate them. He tried being a tiger, an alligator, a horse. Nothing worked. Of course, he loved birds, but he couldn’t do that either.

He tried being like a tiger since they were his ancestors. But, instead of a big ROAR, the only thing that came out of his mouth was a little squeak. He couldn’t scare anything with that, so he tried to be an alligator. Nope, his nose wasn’t long enough. He could hop around on all fours and pretend to be a bird, but he couldn’t fly. He would have loved to have been a horse, but he was too little for someone to ride. Me, oh my! What was poor Oliver to do. He didn’t want to just lie around and be a typical cat.

Then, he had a brilliant idea! He had the thing he could imitate in front of him everyday! This was perfect. Why hadn’t he thought of this before? Now this he could do very well.
