A Pet’s Prayer: Sweet Dreams

on March 3, 2013


A Pet’s Prayer


Thank you, Lord, each day
For the victuals I am fed
Petting and brushing
And my soft, billowy bed

Thank you for the extra treats
Persistently when I’m good
Especially the catnip
Dusted along the faux wood

Thank you for safe keeping
As I scamper and play
Climbing trees, chasing bugs
During the night and day

Thank you for my humans
So loving and kind
Who clean up my messes
And don’t even mind

After all the thanks
I must surely add
I’m truly feline
For this I am glad

If I should die
And it seem unfair
Please let them know
I’m in Heaven’s care

To them you see
I am their child
They need to know
For me you smile

  2. I know animals dream, but I’m certain pets rescued from abusive or disastrous situations pray to some extent for their salvation. They’re very sentient beings.
