'Twas the Night before Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse.
'Cuz the cat had pounced on him
and tore him apart.
Ate his mousey intestines
and chewed up his heart.
Kitty thought he heard sleighbells,
which made him take pause..
He stopped daintilly licking
the blood from his claws.
"Must be Santa," thought Kitty
(that quite clever cat)
"'Cuz no one else climbs down
the chimney like that."
Indeed it was ol' Santa
so jolly and fat.
With a huge load of presents
and all for the cat!
"Wow, the best Christmas ever!"
Kitty thought with a purr,
Then he coughed up a hairball
and shed some more fur.

The Twelve Days of Christmas 1

On the twelfth day of Christmas my mistress gave to me...
twelve toys from Macys,
eleven mice a running,
ten balls of yarn all tangled,
nine frogs aleaping,
eight dogs on leashes,
seven pounds of catnip,
six cans of sardines,
five ... litter ... pans,
four strutting birds,
three quarts milk,
two chicken breasts,
and a pheasant under glass beneath the tree.

Cat Toy Bells

Dashing through the house,
And jumping high and low,
We chase a catnip mouse,
As fast as we can go.
The mouse is old and worn,
And we bit off its tail,
What fun to rip the stuffing out,
And leave a catnip trail!

Chorus:
Oh, cat toy bells, cat toy bells,
Ringing loud and clear.
Oh, what fun, to play and pounce,
When Christmas time is here!

I found a fuzzy ball,
That jingled when it bounced,
I rolled it down the hall,
And when it stopped I pounced.
The ball stayed where it lay,
I'd tired it out at last,
And then it tried to get away,
But I was much too fast!

Chorus:
Oh, cat toy bells, cat toy bells,
Ringing loud and clear.
Oh, what fun, to play and pounce,
When Christmas time is here!

Wreck the Halls

Wreck the halls and steal the ribbons,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Christmas time's such fun for kittens,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
We like to help you with the wrapping,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
No fair do it when we're napping,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
So many gifts beneath the tree,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Is there a present just for me,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Rip the wrap to sneak a peek,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
Is it the fuzzy toy I seek,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

Silent Mouse

Silent mouse, little gray mouse,
How you creep, round my house.
Don't you know you're a play thing to me,
Don't you know I'm your enemy.
Better get out while you can,
Better get out while you can.
Silent mouse, little gray mouse,
Still you creep, round my house,
I'm so tired of your squeaking,
Tired of hearing folks shrieking,
This will be your last warning,
Better get out while you can.
Silent mouse, little gray mouse,
All is calm, round my house.
From your hole you silently crept,
From the shadows I silently leapt.
I can sleep in peace,
I can sleep in peace.
