A Cat Lullaby (Sorta)

Here's my fur fun-filled version of a familiar lullaby (not that we need anything to help us sleep)

Rock-a-bye baby on the cat bed
You're all stretched out, happy and fed




When you're awake, we'll play again




Tiddlies or winkies or mousies say when



Rock-a-bye baby, you're still not awake?
You're missing the fun, for heaven's sake!




After what's turning into one lazy day,
Next stop is the window and I'll lead the way.




Have a great weekend, everybody!

Bellen said...

That's a cute Lullaby but, as you wrote, our furry friends don't need help sleeping. Mine dozed through the singing - and if you heard my voice, you'd be astonished at that.

My favorite line is "happy and fed"

Your pal, Pip

LOL at the flying mouse! Did you flick him off that spoon?? We'd like you to show us your window so we can what you see when we look out.

I think napping the day away is very useful! It's the best time to make plans!

Oh i love your little lullaby! But i think sleeping is one of the easiest things for kitties to do. (I wish it was so easy for me all the time.) :) But i'll bet they love it when you sing to them, because it means they're the center of attention. And we know kitties love to be that too. Hope you had a good weekend, Tom and Julie!

meowmeowmans said...

Hugs!
