A Cat's Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep,
The king-size bed is soft and deep...
I sleep right in the center groove
My human can hardly move!
I've trapped her legs, she's tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night
No one disturbs me or dares intrude
Till morning comes and "I want food!"
I sneak up slowly to begin
My nibbles on my human's chin.
She wakes up quickly, I have sharp teeth
-And my claws I will unsheath
For the morning's here and it's time to play
I always seem to get my way.
So thank you Lord for giving me
This human person that I see.
The one who hugs me and holds me tight
And sacrifices her bed at night.

  1. Very cute prayer! And the little kitten photo is so precious. I'm just reading through the blog and the wonderful stories. So happy that we have such a wonderful home for felines right in our back yard!

  2. What a nice kitty prayer! Our human parents say we hog the bed all the time so they can relate.

    Our prayer around here is: Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord a mouse to keep!
