A Cat Goes To Heaven
A cat dies and goes to Heaven. God meets him at the gate and says, "You have been a good cat all these years. Anything you desire is yours, all you have to do is ask."
The cat says, "Well, I lived all my life with a poor family on a farm and had to sleep on hardwood floors."
God says, "Say no more!" And instantly, a soft, fluffy pillow appears.
A few days later, six mice are killed in a horrible accident and they go to Heaven. God meets them at the gate with the same offer that He made to the cat.
The mice said, "All our lives we've had to run. Cats, dogs, and even women with brooms have chased us. If we could only have a pair of roller skates, we wouldn't have to run anymore."
God says to the mice, "Say no more!" And instantly, each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.
About a week passes, God decides to check and see how the cat is doing. The cat is sound asleep on his new soft pillow. God gently wakes him and asks, "How are you doing?"
The cat yawns and stretches, then replies, "Oh, I've never been happier in my life. And those 'Meals-on-Wheels' you've been sending are the best!"
