MERRY CAT-MAS, by Mollie Hunt, Cat Writer

In our house,
the cats own Christmas.
They own the tree,
which is decorated to their delight,
with the big unbreakable bulbs
down low
for their enjoyment.
They own the hearth
and the soft rug in front,
warm and cozy.
They own the kitchen,
which though busy with baking,
also gives treats and tastes,
just for them.

They own the presents,
wrapped in tissue,
which they pull and tear,
to open by themselves.

They own the gift boxes
to sit in;
the wrapping paper
to kneed into a crinkly bed;
the ribbons to chase and toss,
better than all the expensive toys
from the pet shop.

In our home,
the cats own Christmas,
and we wouldn’t have it
any other way.

Happy Holidays from our family to yours!

  1. Loved you poem, Mollie! Yes, cats do own Christmas and just about everything else in the house. I'm missing my cat, Liberty, right now. She would have loved your poem, too.
    Crazy Cat Mysteries sounds like delightful. I loved your pictures. I take it those are your real cats.

    I hope you and your cats have a wonderful Christmas, Mollie.

  2. Thank you, Sarah. I'm sorry you are missing your kitty. That's hard. Yes, they are my cats. (Sorry for the delayed response. I've been having trouble posting comments lately.)
