Miranda: Mama Lucy, will you tell me the Catmus Poem?
Lucy: You get all settled down in your little blanket nest. It’s Catmus eve and little kitties need to get to sleep so Santy Paws can come. Now, if you are ready I’ll tell you the poem.
Linus: Mom, I wanna hear too!
Lucy: Then you get all tucked in, too. Okay then,
Twas the night before Catmus and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
Milo: Mouse? Someone see a mouse? Where?
Lucy: It’s the Catmus poem, Milo.
Milo: Oh. O, yeah, I knew that.
The kittens were nestled all snug in their pillow beds
While visions of trout and shimp danced in their heads
Miranda: This is a poem about the Tabbies?
Lucy: Lottie in her snugglie and I had my nippy-cat
Had just settled down for a much needed nap!
When out on the lawn there rose such a clatter
I sprang up, my tail fluffed, o what is the matter!!!
Away to the window I flew in a flash
Clawed up the couch and ripped up the sash
Linus: Ma, you tore up a curtain?
Lucy: It’s a poem, Linus, be still now.
What to my cat-keen eyes should appear
But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer.
Miranda: I bet those were really doxies. Weiner dogs.
Linus: They anything like John Deeres?
Lucy: I’m gonna smackety paw you both. Now hush.
With a little old driver so lively and quick
I knew right away that it must be St. Nick
More rapid that eagles his horses they came
Miranda: Are dey flyin’ horses?
Linus: What happened to the John Deere?
Miranda: Do da Tabbies know deres’ buuuurds in this catmus poem?
Lucy: Hush, or Santy Paws won’t come to either of you.
He whistles and shouted and call them by name
Linus: This oughta be good.
Lucy: "Now Blizzard! now, Tigger! now, Zoey and Zach!
On, Lacey! On, Tink! on Jezebel and Alex!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!
Miranda: Hey, I know those names!
Lucy: And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney Santy Paws came with a bound.
He spoke not a word from his bags pulled things nice,
Leaving catnip and feather toys, balls and mice.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Catmus to all, and to all a good-night!"
And now, my little ones, it is time for you to go to sleep. Catmus is almost here.
Sweet dreams, Linus. Sweet dreams, Miranda.
Linus: Good night, Ma.
Miranda: Merry Catmus, Mama Lucy.
Lucy: Merry Catmus to one and all!

THAT WAS PAWSOME MOMMA LUCY!!! TELL IT AGAIN! Na Na Finney! Only me and Alex are helping fly the sleigh! *blows raspberry*
Finney: But I've been a good boy lately! I'm giving everyone lots of lovies! Oh POOH!
Glad to hear you been a good boy, Finney. Hope yews givin' yur mom lots o purrs and headbonks. Maybe Lucy'll put you into the rudolph story next time. Better than "Olive, the other reindeer"
Or Grandma that got run over by the reindeer, MOL
Know I know that song. But it's "grandpa got run over by the John Deere."
That was wonderful! Happy Christmas Miranda and Family.
Love it! ooooh we are so excited santa paws is coming tonight!!
