The Furry Ones

I like--
the furry ones--
the waggy ones
the purry ones
the hoppy ones
that hurry,

The glossy ones
the saucy ones
the sleepy ones
the leapy ones
the mousy ones
that scurry,

The snuggly ones
the huggly ones
the never, never
ugly ones...
all soft
and warm
and furry.

Pets

I'm a dog
All tail and bark
Snapping, yapping
In the park.

I'm a cat
As thin as a wire,
Creeping, sleeping
By the fire.

I'm a rabbit
all fluff and ear,
Trapped in a cage
And twitching fear.

John Kitching


Love Your Pets

(to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat")

Love, love
Love your pets,
Love them
Every day.
Give them food
And water, too,
Then let them
Run and play.


My Pets

There are lots of pets in my house.
I have one gerbil and one white mouse.
(Hold up one finger on each hand.)
I have two kittens and two green frogs,
(Hold up two fingers on each hand.)
I have three goldfish and three big dogs.
(Hold up three fingers on each hand.)
Some folks say that's a lot!
Can you tell how many pets I've got?

I Have A Pet

(to the tune of "Bingo")

I have a cat who's cuddly soft
And Beau-Jo is her name, oh!
Beau-jo is her name,
Beau-jo is her name,
Beau-jo is her name,
I love to rub her ears.

I have a dog who's my best pal
And Skeeter is his name, oh!
Skee - ter is his name,
Skee - ter is his name,
Skee - ter is his name,
He sleeps with me each night.

I have a fish who swims quite well,
And Goldie is his name, oh!
Gol - die is his name,
Gol - die is his name,
Gol - die is his name,
He swims around for hours.

I have a bird who's green and yellow,
And Gigi is her name, oh!
Gi - gi is her name,
Gi - gi is her name,
Gi - gi is her name,
She chirps and chirps all day.
