It was the night before Christmas and all through the house,
All the critters were stirring, including a mouse.
Cat Lady was scolding, “Bobcat leave him alone!”
If Bobcat was a dog she’d simply throw him a bone.
While Lexington lie on the sofa restfully,
Watching the antics of Bobcat and that crazy Cat Lady.
She open the front door to entice the mouse out,
And then what she heard, a sound similar to a shout,
“HO HO HO, Meowy Catmas!” roared a voice from the tree,
Come on little mousey she coaxed tenderly.
He bolted outside finally safe from the beast,
As Santa Paws appeared, announcing, “Playtime with mousey has ceased!”
Bobcat whined, “Meh, meh, meh…,” but then started to grin,
As Santa Paws presented a gift contained in a decorative tin.
The contents were sprinkled on the area rug with care,
Both cats plunged into catnip, Lexington cried, “Bobcat you must share!”
Cat Lady now contented, kissed Santa Paws on the face,
He dashed off into the night shouting LOVE TO ALL,
And disappeared without a trace…
Merry Christmas! Thank you all for your love and support throughout another year!
In loving memory of Topper, my sweet spirit from recent Christmas past.
