THIMBLE SHOES by Freeda Baker Nichols

A little cat came down the street
with thimble shoes on her small feet.
She wobbled left and wobbled right;
she really was a funny sight.
When Moo Cow said her howdy-do’s,
she asked about the fancy shoes.
The little cat’s green eyes blinked hard.
“I found them in my master’s yard.
When you get big, you, too, can wear
some shoes like these, I do declare!”

    Cute poem and picture. It also reminded me of young girls trying out their first high heels.

    Looking at the cute kitten makes me wish I wasn’t allergic to them. Perfect picture for this poem.


    • I’m sorry you’re allergic to cats, Ginger. One member in our family is also allergic to cats. We have only two outdoor cats now, and no dogs of our own. But we have had some good dogs.
