    The Cat Carol

    I just heard this for the first time on the radio. Tears are not good while driving. So bitter/sweet. (Hope this is the right forum)
    Has anyone heard this song? Just the lyrics dont really do it justice.

    The Cat Carol
    by Meryn Cadell

    The Cat Carol

    The cat wanted in to the warm warm house,
    but no one would let the cat in
    It was cold outside on Christmas Eve,
    She meowed and meowed by the door.

    The cat was not let in the warm warm house,
    And her tiny cries were ignored.
    'twas a blizzard now, the worst of the year,
    There was no place for her to hide.

    Just then a poor little mouse crept by,
    He had lost his way in the snow.
    He was on his last legs and was almost froze,
    The cat lifted him with her paw.

    She said "Poor mouse do not be afraid,
    because this is Christmas Eve.
    "On this freezing night we both need a friend,
    "I won’t hurt you - stay by my side."

    She dug a small hole in an icy drift,
    This is where they would spent the night.
    She curled herself 'round her helpless friend,
    Protecting him from the cold.

    Oooooo

    When Santa came by near the end of the night,
    the reindeer started to cry.
    They found the cat lying there in the snow,
    and they could see that she had died.

    They lifted her up from the frozen ground,
    and placed her into the sleigh.
    It was then they saw the little mouse wrapped up,
    she had kept him warm in her fur.

    "Oh thank you Santa for finding us!
    "Dear cat wake up we are saved!"
    ..."I’m sorry mouse but your friend has died,
    there’s nothing more we can do.

    "On Christmas Eve she gave you her life,
    the greatest gift of them all."
    Santa lifted her up into the night sky,
    and laid her to rest among the stars.

    "Dear mouse don’t cry you are not alone,
    you will see your friend every year.
    "Each Christmas a Cat Constellation will shine,
    to remind us that her love’s still here."

    Oooooooo

    Ok, now I'm all teary eyed and so emotional! I'm going to have to go home and open the door to all the ferals outside in the freezing cold. Will someone please open their door and take in my hubby when he moves out?
