we saw this on Flippy and though itz now past Christmas this wuz lovely and we thought we'd post it. we cannot agree with it more.

A Cat's Christmas Prayer
Whoever made the stars that shine,
Whoever made green trees of pine,
Whoever dreamed up fish and mice,
Or sun and rain and snow and ice,
Must have the power in His paws
To help when there's a worthy cause.
Whoever gave the birds a nest
Will grant this humble cat's request.

For needy felines everywhere,
I meow my little Christmas prayer.
Please heal the sick
And cheer the sad,
Forgive the naughty,and excuse the bad.
One more simple thing I ask:
A pool of sunlight in which to bask,
Plus a plate of food,
A safe, warm house,
A loving lap, a catnip mouse.
Freedom from fleas, furballs, and mats,
And homes for all the homeless cats.

from A Cat's Christmas by Stefanie Samek

And cheer the sad,
Forgive the naughty,and excuse the bad."
