By Jenny Smucker, when she was five–
Oh, a cat’s life!
Mom, do you know why I say, ‘Oh, a cat’s life!’?
Because a cat’s life is just wonderful.
They can sleep whenever they want to;
they don’t have to ask before they cross the road;
they can scratch and bite people whenever they want to
and they never get punished;
they can kill mice whenever they want to
(Yes, these kittens are ours. Aren’t they beautiful?)
