Dinner-time!

Kitty's Bedtime Prayer


Now I lay me down to sleep,

I pray this cushy life to keep.

I pray for toys that look like mice,

and sofa cushions, soft and nice.

For grocery bags where I can hide,

just like a tiger, crouched inside!

I pray for gourmet Kitty snacks,

and someone nice to scratch my back.

For window sills all warm and bright,

for shadows to explore at night.

I pray I'll always stay real cool,

and keep the secret feline rule.

To NEVER tell a human that...

the world is really ruled by CATS!


Sincerely the Cat!
