Last year I made myself a vow,
To catch me a reindeer, someway somehow.

So Christmas Eve, quiet as a mouse,
I climbed onto the roof of my house.

I didn't have to wait,very long .
Until I heard this familar song.

On Dasher, on Dancer, on Comet and Cupid,
Who'd have known Santa would be so stupid?

He parked his sleigh, loaded with toys----
Went down my chimney with hardly a noise.

I was alert--- I picked out my foe
The one on the end, looked kind of slow.

I knew I was right when I picked up the reins
He wasn't just slow--- he's a tad short on brains.

I looked in his eyes and gave my head a toss,
Said " Hi there, how'd you like some nice reindeer moss"?

He followed me down and we went inside
And thats when I whacked him and tacked up his hide.

Now I'm not sure how long he will stay,
Half in or half out of my wall this way,

But as long as he's here, I'm jumping astride,
This Christmas I've got a reindeer to ride.

Santa, Reindeer and Miss Kitty

One reindeer has really just met his match.
While getting ready to roll, he noticed his catch!

Did this kitty float off a fluffy white cloud?
Did Santa yell something to Rudolph out loud?

One daring kitty thought maybe this year
She'd join the team with eight little reindeer.

She'll be taking down notes and help to deliver.
But where is her coat, as she begins to shiver?

A sleigh full of toys, but no GPS on this trip.
She'll make sure that no house will Santa ever skip.

No napping as usual when Santa takes flight.
This kitty will fly with the team on this night.

If you look to the sky and see such a sight,
You'll know that kitty is needed on this Christmas night.

What is all this talk I am hearing
Of someone named Santa Claws?
(I heard our silly dog remark he is
Actually named Santa PAWS!)
My People said he’ll come on Christmas night,
Carrying a great big pack
Full of toys and treats and surprises
Goodies galore, quite a generous stack!
My People said his beard is snowy white
And his plump suit is festive red
Reindeer provide the hoof-power
And pull him along in his sled.
This I am having trouble believing
And so I have decided to disguise
Myself as another of his reindeer
Up here on The Man’s favorite prize.
I’ll peek out between these antlers
And ascertain if the facts are right
Also get the scoop on Paws or Claws
Up here on my perch Christmas night!

Ready or not, off they will fly
Every so qracefully through the sky.
Inspect all the toys before the elves go.
Naughty or Nice? Only Santa does know.
Deer antlers polished shiney and new,
Each adorned with silver bells of two.
Ebony eyes glisten with the hue of the moon,
Red~nosed reindeer will be taking off soon.
Ready for flight, they dance as they prance,
Incredibly beautiful in their holiday stance.
Decked are the paws with boughs of holly,
Ears perked, "Ho!Ho!Ho!" his laugh is jolly.

"It's a Bird! It's a Plane!"
by Iggy Cat

Yoo Hoo! Look at me I'm way up high.
Prancer insists I go for a ride.
A ride? On a deer? I just don't know.
He snorts, "Just grab the fur of my hide."

Can't get far if we're stuck on this wall!
"Boy, haven't your heard I have magic?"
That's impossible you have no legs!
"That surely indeed does sound tragic."

"Don't judge a book just by it's cover,
nor by the velvet on these antlers.
Boy, just close your eyes then count to ten,
then hold on for some fun adventures."

He said count to ten. "One, two, three, four."
My eyes opened to a big surprise!
Lo and behold we were flying high.
So high I couldn't believe my eyes.

Above the clouds so fluffy and pale,
Stood stars that flickered ever so bright.
I could almost see Heaven from here!
Who would believe I'm a cat in flight?

Prancer dashed from this house to that one,
leaving hoof prints on snow ladden roofs.
Sprinkles of dust laid thick in the air.
This should make for some comedy spoofs.

What is that? "It's a bird!" "It's a plane!"
"Oh my Lord! Look! It's a cat with horns!"
Headline of the local newspaper?
"It was Jesus in a Crown of Thorns!"

What would that fetch on Ebay?

(I can't win because I know Grammie, but can't resist adding my two paws!)
Here's my song...er...poem. *ahemie*


Up on the deer top the kitty paws
Looking out for Santa Paws
Over the chimneys with catnip toys
All for the elves below, Christmas joys

Go kitty go!
Over the snow....
Up on the deer top, on his head
Right 'tween the antlers
Like a sled!

First comes the stocking of furless dad
Fill it with a tie that's plaid
Give him a hamburg and side of fries
One that is big enough for chubby guys

Go kitty go!
Over the snow....
Up on the deer top, on his head
Right 'tween the antlers
Like a sled!

Next comes the stocking of furless mom
Oh just see what a pretty lip balm
Here are pajamas and pretty jewels
And give her a diet without no rules!

Go kitty go!
Over the snow....
Up on the deer top, on his head
Right 'tween the antlers
Like a sled!

Then comes the stocking of furless child
Oh just see all these toys compiled!
Give him transformers and Pokemon
Fast moving cars that I can jump on!

Go kitty go!
Over the snow....
Up on the deer top, on his head
Right 'tween the antlers
Like a sled!

Last comes the stocking of kitty cat
Oh just see, what a big fat rat!
Give him some catnip and dangly toys
And stringy things kitty cat enjoys

Go kitty go!
Over the snow....
Up on the deer top, on his head
Right 'tween the antlers
Like a sled!

Love all the poems!!!!!applauseapplauseapplauseapplauseapplauseapplause


I am not coming down til that “thing” goes away.
What made you decide to bring home this stray?
He’s chased me endlessly through out every room.
Upstairs and downstairs, I feel quite doomed.
And that constant barking has to stop.
Can’t you stuff his mouth with a mop?

At least up here I feel safe and sound.
Way out of reach from that crazy hound.
Now maybe I can sit back and rest.
Until you do something with that horrible pest.

This deer is much more to my liking you see
He’s calm and quiet, not some crazy banshee.
Yep, I think right up here is where I will hide.
Until that dog is put back OUTSIDE.

"Doe' want To Talk "

I hope you don't mind ,
Me sitting up here.
I promise not to lick you ,
Or purr in your ear.
I'm waiting on Santa ,
Aren't you one of his Reindeer 's ?
It's o.k. if you don't want to talk ,
There's no one here , they all went for a walk.
Is your name Rudolph ? No ! Prancer I bet ,
I hear he flies fast and higher than a jet.
Why are you stuck up here on the wall ?
Did Comet slow down and cause you to fall ?
Don't worry Santa will come back ,
He can't finish Christmas without you ,
Cause he doesn't want to walk or carry that sack.
Why don't you ever answer me ?
Did a cat get your tongue ?
