Christmas Cat loves to bake stuff.
She loves to bake cookies.
She also bakes brownies,
but never blondies,
because chocolate is good.
Santa says it is very good.
Santa loves his chocolate all of the time.

Christmas Cat also makes toys.
She makes them for her friends.
The toys she gives out
to good cats and dogs
are made by the lovely elves.
Toys made by wee tiny elves
then given to good cats and good dogs.

Christmas Cat lives with Santa.
She’s of a special breed.
She sometimes helps
the reindeer belch
by massaging their backs.
Scratching when they need a scratch.
She loves to help presents go out to kids.

Christmas cat is a calico.
This means she has colors: three.
If she were a male,
vitality impaired,
fruitless would he be.
No kittens would he see.
Genetics rules both you and me.
