The Cat

The cat

A cat died and went to Heaven.
God met her at the gates and said,
'You have been a good cat all these years. Anything you want
is yours for the asking.'

The cat thought for a minute and then said, 'All my life I lived on a farm
and slept on hard wooden floors. I would like a real fluffy
pillow to sleep on.'

God said, 'Say no more.' Instantly the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.

A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went
to Heaven together. God met the mice at the gates with the same offer
that He made to the cat.

The mice said, 'Well, we have had to run all of our lives: from cats, dogs
and even people with brooms! If we could just have some little
roller skates, we would not have to run again.'

God answered, 'It is done.' All the mice had beautiful little roller skates.

About a week later, God decided to check on the cat. He found her
sound asleep on her fluffy pillow. God gently awakened the cat and asked,
everything okay? How have you been doing? Are you happy?'

The cat replied, 'Oh, it is WONDERFUL. I have never been so happy in my
The pillow is so fluffy, and those little Meals on Wheels you have been
sending over are delicious!'

Hey we need a cute clean one every once in awhile.
