Animals in Heaven
St Peter is at his post at the Pearly Gates when a cat shows up.
St Peter says “I know you! You were a very nice cat on earth and didn’t cause any trouble, so I want to offer a gift to you of one special thing you have always wanted.”
Cat: “Well, I did always long to own a nice satin pillow like my master had, so I could lie on it.”
St Peter: “That’s easy. Granted. You shall have the satin pillow after you enter in.”
Next a group of mice appeared.
St Peter: “Ah, I remember you. You were such good mice on earth. You didn’t steal food and never hurt other animals. Therefore, I want to grant you one special wish you always wanted.”
The Chief Mouse replied, “Well, we always watched the children playing and saw them roller skate, and it was beautiful, and it looked like so much fun, so we’d like some roller skates, if we could?”
St Peter: “Granted. You shall have your wish.”
Next day, St Peter is making the rounds inside Heaven and sees the cat. “Well, Cat…Did you enjoy the satin pillow?”
Cat: “Oh, indeed I did. And say…that “Meals on Wheels” thing was a nice touch, too!”
