not a feline was stirring,
not even a mouse.
Cat stockings were hung by the door with care,
in hopes Santa Paws soon would be there.
with brothers and sisters curled head-to-head.
And mama cat on her quilt,
and I on my mat,
had just settled into a delicious catnap
I sprang from my mat to see what was the matter.
Away to the windows, I
flew like a flash,
climbed up the curtains,
and pressed my nose to the glass.
but a small golden chariot,
pulled by cats just like me!
With a fluffy old driver, so white and so furry,I
knew in a moment it must be Saint Purr-y.
More rapid than rabbits,
his kitties they came,
and he yowled and meowed, calling each cat by name.
"On, Slippers, On, Sneakers, On, Bigfoot, On, Spats!
Christmas is coming, lets go gentle cats.
"Now, White Sox, Now, Bootsie,
Lets go Gloves and Mittens!
To the back porch we fly!
Let's go cats and kittens!
So down to the catdoor, his kittens they flew,with a catnip filled chariot and Santa Paws too.
And then, in a twinkling,
I heard on the latch,the paws and clawing of Santa paws scratch.
As I sniffed for his scent and looked all around,through the cat door Santa Paws came with a bound.
His eyes how they sparkled,
his whiskers, how merry!
His cheeks were like marshmallows, his pink nose like a cherry!
His little cat mouth was drawn up like a bow,
and the fur on his paws was as white as the snow.
He meowed not a word,
but went straight to his work,
and filled all the stockings, and turned with a jerk.
Then washing his whiskers,
his ears, coat and tail,
after having a snack,
out the cat door he sailed.
He jumped in his chariot,
to his team gave a yowl,
and away they all flew,
like nine cats on the prowl.
But I heard him meow,
as he drove out of sight,"
Meowy Christmas to all,
and to all a good night."
