A cat dies and goes to heaven. God meets him at the gate and says, “You have been a good cat all these years. You can have anything you desire, all you have to do is ask.”
“Well,” says the cat, “I lived all my life on a farm and had to sleep on hardwood floors.”
“Say no more,” says God and instantly a fluffy pillow appears.
A few days later, six mice are killed in a tragic accident and they go to heaven. God meets them at the gate with the same offer as he made to the cat.
“All our lives,” the mice say, “we’ve had to run. Cats, dogs, women with brooms, they have all chased us. If we had roller skates we wouldn’t have to run anymore.”
God says he can take care of it and instantly each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.
A week later God checks on the cat, which is asleep on its pillow. God gently nudges him awake and asks, “How are you doing? Are you happy here?”
“Never been happier,” says the cat, stretching and yawning. “And those meals on wheels you’ve been sending over are great.”
