Santa Claws

Santa Claws,
eating every needle you see,
drinking the milk,
leaving hairballs beneath the tree.

Santa Claws,
placing a purr in every gift,
shredding the paper,
giving each ornament a little lift.

Santa Claws,
visiting houses to be fed,
avoiding the snow,
bogging down in cat naps instead.

Oh well, guess we’ll try again next year.
