My mother sent me a newspaper clipping of this story:
cat died and went to heaven. God met her at the gates and said "You
have been a good cat all these years. Anything you want is yours for the
asking." The cat thought for a minute and then said "All my life I
lived on a farm and slept on hard wooden floors. I would really like a
fluffy pillow to sleep on."
God said "Say no more." Instantly the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.
few days later six mice were killed in an accident and they all went to
heaven together. God met the mice at the gates with the same offer that
he made to the cat.
The mice said "We have had to run all of our
lives; from cats, dogs, people with brooms. If we could just have some
little roller skates, we would not have to run again."
God answered "It is done."
All the mice had beautiful little roller skates.
a week later, God decided to check on the cat. He found her asleep on
her fluffy pillow. God gently awakened the cat and asked "Is everything
okay? How have you been doing? Are you happy?"
The cat replied "Oh, it is WONDERFUL. I have never been so happy. The pillow is so fluffy, and those little meals on wheels you have been sending me are delicious!"
