When God Created Kitty Cats

When God created kitty cats
He had no recipe
He knew he wanted something sweet,
As sweet as sweet could be.

He started out with sugar
Adding just a trace of spice.
Then stirred in drops of morning dew,
To keep them fresh and nice.

He thought cats should be soft to pet
Thus he gave them coats of fur.
So they could show they were content
He taught them how to purr.

He made for them long tails to wave
While strutting down the walk.
Then trained them in meow-ology
So they could cat-talk.

He made them into acrobats
And gave them grace and poise.
Their wide-eyed curiosity
He took from little boys.

He put whiskers on their faces,
Gave them tiny ears for caps.
Then shaped their little bodies
To snugly fit on laps.

He gave them eyes as big as saucers,
To look into man's soul.
Then set a tolerance for mankind,
As their purpose and their goal.

Benevolent and generous,
He made so many of them.
Then charged, with fatherly concern
The human race to love them.

When one jumped up on His lap,
God gently stroked it's head.
The cat gave Him a kitty kiss,
"What wondrous love," God said.

God smiled at his accomplishment,
So pleased with His creation,
And said, with pride, as he sat back,
"At last..I've reached purr-fection!"
