    Poem: A Cat's Prayer

    Cat's Prayer
    Now I lay me down to sleep,
    The king-size bed is soft and deep...
    I sleep right in the center groove
    My human can hardly move!

    I've trapped her legs, she's tucked in tight
    And here is where I pass the night
    No one disturbs me or dares intrude
    Till morning comes and "I want food!"

    I sneak up slowly to begin
    My nibbles on my human's chin.
    She wakes up quickly, I have sharp teeth -
    And my claws I will unsheath

    For the morning's here and it's time to play
    I always seem to get my way.
    So thank you Lord for giving me
    This human person that I see.

    The one who hugs me and holds me tight
    And sacrifices her bed at night.

    ...Author Unknown


    I found this and it delighted me. Hope that you enjoy it, too.
    I'm sometimes asked "Why do you spend so much of your time and money talking about kindness to animals when there is so much cruelty to men?" I answer: "I am working at the roots." -George T. Angell, reformer (1823-1909)

    This really sounds like Grover! She sleeps with me in a way that makes me not want to move because of course I don't want to disturb her.

    Sounds like Stubby, the chair that I keep next to my desk, well I like to put my feet up in it. No more! Stubby has taken that chair over, and now I have to take the edge so as not to disturb my spoiled boy! I think maybe he is starting to like me a little more? He actually licked my forehead. Think so?
