Times and Rhymes for Cats, Dogs and Pets

I love little kitty,
Her coat is so warm,
And if I don’t hurt her,
She’ll do me no harm.

So I’ll not pull her tail,
Nor drive her away,
But kitty and I
Always gently will play.
Great A. Little a ,
Bouncing B –
The cat’s in the cupboard,
And can’t see me!
I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives:
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats.
Each cat had seven kits -
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?
Ding, dong bell
Pussy’s in the well!
Who put her in?
Little Tommy Thin.
Who pulled her out?
Little Jacky Stout.
What a naughty boy was that
To try to drown poor pussy cat,
Who never did him any harm,
But killed the mice on his father’s farm.
Bow, wow, says the dog;
Mew, mew, says the cat;
Grunt, grunt, goes the hog;
And squeak goes the rat.

Tu-whu, says the owl;
Caw, caw, says the crow;
Quack, quack, says the duck;
And what sparrows say, you know.

So, with sparrows, and owls,
With rats and with dogs,
With ducks, and with crows,
With cats and with hogs.

A fine song I have made
To please you, my dear;
And if it’s well sung,
‘Twill be chaming to hear.
Leg over leg
As the dog went to Dover,
When he came to a stile,
JUMP! He went over!

(Another bouncing rhyme)
Three little kittens they lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
“Oh, Mother dear, we sadly fear
That we have lost our mittens.”
“What? Lost your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie.”
Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow,
We shall have no pie.

The three little kittens they found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
“Oh, Mother, dear, see here, see here,
For we have found our mittens.”
“Put on your mittens,
You darling kittens,
And you shall have some pie.”
Purr, Purr, Purr, Purr;
Oh, let us have some pie.

The three little kittens put on their mittens,
And soon ate up the pie;
“Oh, Mother, dear, we greatly fear
That we have soiled our mittens.”
“What? Soiled your mittens,
You naughty kittens!”
Then they began to sigh,
Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow;
Then they began to sigh.

The three little kittens they washed their mittens,
And hung them out to dry;
“Oh, Mother dear, do you not hear
That we have washed our mittens?”
“What? Washed your mittens,
You good little kittens!
But I smell a rat close by.”
Meow, Meow, Meow, Meow
We smell a rat close by.
Cats sleep
Any table,
Any chair,
Top of piano,
In the middle,
On the edge,
Open drawer,
Empty shoe,
Lap will do,
Fitted in a
Cardboard box,
In the cupboard
With your frocks –
They don’t care!
Cats sleep
Eleanor Farjeon
Little Bunny Frou-Frou
Hopping through the forest,
Waking up the field mice
And BOPPING them on their heads!

(Adriana and Xochitl especially seemed to enjoy this one.)
How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail?
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’s for sale.

(A song I sung all the time as a child –
never mind that I now tell my family
how wrong it is to buy puppies from
a pet shop – my boycott against
puppy mills!)
