Meow-y Christmas To All!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas as Told by Franklin

'Twas the night before Christmas at In-Sync Exotics,
not a feline was stirring, not even a coatimundi.
Our cats’ stockings were hung in the Commissary with care,
in hopes Santa Paws soon would be here.

The tigers were snuggled in their warm dens,
And the cougars and lions were dreaming of meat treats.
Our servals and ocelot resting their weary heads,
had just settled into their warm little beds.

When out in the grounds there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.
Away to the window, I flew like a flash,
climbed up the desk, and pressed my nose to the glass.

And what in the world did my feline eyes see,
but a small golden chariot, pulled by cats just like me!
With a fluffy old driver, so white and so furry,
I knew in a moment it must be Saint Purr-y.

More rapid than cheetahs, his kitties they came,
and he yowled and meowed, calling each cat by name.
"On, Socks, On, Reebox, On, Spirit, On, Shoes!
Christmas is coming, let’s go gentle me-mews."

So down to the door, his kitties they flew,
with a catnip filled chariot and Santa Paws too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the latch,
the paws and clawing of Santa paws scratch.
As I sniffed for his scent and looked all around,
through the commissary door Santa Paws came with a bound.

His eyes how they sparkled, his whiskers, how merry!
His cheeks were like cottonballs, his pink nose like a cherry!
His little cat mouth was drawn up like a bow,
and the fur on his paws was as white as the snow.

He meowed not a word, but went straight to his work,
and filled all cat stockings, and turned with a jerk.
Then washing his whiskers, his ears, coat and tail,
after having a  cat snack, out the commissary door he sailed.

He jumped in his chariot, to his team gave a yowl,
and away they all flew, like wild cats on the prowl.
But I heard him meow, as he sailed out of sight,
"Meow-y Christmas to all, and to all a good night."
