Pet's Prayer

A Pet's Prayer - author unknown

Now I lay me down to sleep
My humans' bed is soft and deep
I sleep right in the center grove
My human beings can hardly move!

I've trapped their legs, they're tucked in tight
And here is where I pass the night
Peacfully, without a doubt
Til morning comes and I want out!

I sneak up slowly to begin
nibbling on my humans' chin
They soon awake to care for me
Cuz I'm their critter, don't you see?

Now mornings here and time to play
I always seem to get my way!
From first light to the setting sun
I count my blessings one-by-one!

So thank you Lord for giving me
These human people that love me
The ones who hug and hold me tight
And share their bed with me at night!

Aw, I love it! trapped and pretzeled legs is very true. No wonder I have to regularly see a chiropractor.

Love it! I just need a bigger bed for me and my 5 little ones. Queen just not big enough. I know if I got a king they would still be right next to me so why bother but sometimes I do need to turn over and stretch.
