A cat died and went to Heaven. God met him at the gate and said, “You have been a good cat all these years. Anything you desire is yours, all you have to do is ask.”
The cat said, “Well, I lived all my life with a poor family on a farm and had to sleep on hardwood floors.”
God said, “Say no more.” And instantly, a fluffy pillow appeared.
A few days later, six mice were killed in a tragic accident and they also went to Heaven. God met them at the gate with the same offer that He made to the cat.
The mice said, “All our lives we had to run. Cats, dogs and even women with brooms chased us. If we could only have a pair of roller skates, we wouldn’t have to run anymore.”
God said, “No problem.” Instantly, each mouse was fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.
About a week later, God decided to check to see how the cat was doing. The cat was sound asleep on his new pillow. God gently woke him and asked, “How are you doing? Are you happy here?” The cat yawned and stretched and said, “Oh, I’ve never been happier in my life … and those Meals on Wheels you’ve been sending over are the best!”
