Kittens & Cats

Five Little Pussy Cats

Five little pussy cats playing near the door;
One ran and hid inside
And then there were four.

Four little pussy cats underneath a tree;
One heard a dog bark
And then there were three.

Three little pussy cats thinking what to do;
One saw a little bird
And then there were two.

Two little pussy cats sitting in the sun;
One ran to catch his tail
And then there was one.

One little pussy cat looking for some fun;
He saw a butterfly--
And then there was none.


The House Cat

The house cat sits
and smiles and sings.
He knows a lot of
Secret things.

Annette Wynne


Cats

Cats sleep
Anywhere
Any table
Any chair
Top of piano
Window ledge
In the middle
On the edge
Open drawer
Empty shoe
Any body's
Lap will do
Fitted in a
Cardboard box
In the cupboard
With your frocks
Anywhere
THEY don't care
Cats sleep
Anywhere

Eleanor Farjeon


Cats Love To Sleep

Cats love to sleep in the sunshine
Cats love to sleep in the shade
But my cat sleeps in the middle of my bed
on the blankets
when the bed's not made.

Carole Graham


The Cat Song

I see a cat.
The cat sees me.
I like the cats.
The cats like me.
Big black cats.
One, two, three.
I like the cats
and the cats like me.


Five Little Pussy Cats

Five little pussy cats,
See them play,
This one brown,
And this one is gray.
This one has a white nose,
This one has sharp claws,
This one has long whiskers,
And tiny, soft paws.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5 pussy cats,
Hurry away to scare the mice and rats.
Squeak!


Kitty, Kitty

I have a little kitty,
(extend first and fourth fingers like ears)
He is as quick as he can be.
(Make a side way motion with one hand quickly)
He jumps upon my lap,
(Cup one hand in palm of other)
And purrs a song to me. (Make purring sound)


The Kitty

Once there was a little kitty
Whiter than snow;
In a barn she used to frolic,
Long time ago.

In the barn a little mousie
Ran to and fro:
For she heard the kitty coming,
Long time ago.

Two eyes had little kitty.
Black as a shoe;
And they spied the little mousie,
Long time ago.

Four paws had little kitty,
Paws soft as dough,
And they caught the little mousie,
Long time ago.

Nine teeth had little kitty,
All in a row;
And they bit the little mousie,
Long time ago.

When the teeth bit little mousie,
Little mouse cried "Oh!"
But she got away from kitty,
Long time ago.

Little Kittens

Five little kittens playing on the floor,
One smelled a mouse, then there were four.
Four little kittens fat as fat could be,
One saw a puppy, then there were three.
Three little kittens watched how birdies flew,
One ran far up the tree, then there were two.
Two little kittens snoozing in the sun,
One chased a rabbit, then there was one.
One little kitten looking for some fun,
He fluffed his tail and scampered off,
Now there isn't even one.
