A cat died and went to heaven. God met her at the Golden Gate and said, "You have been a good cat all of these years. Anything you want is yours for the asking."
The cat thought a minute and then said, "All my life I lived on a farm and slept on hard wooden floors. I would like a real fluffy pillow to sleep on.
"God said, "Say no more." Instantly, the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.
A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went to heaven together.
God met the mice at the gates of heaven with the same offer that He made to the cat.
The mice said, "Well, we have had to run all our lives: from cats, dogs and even people with brooms! If we could just have some little roller-skates, we would never have to run again.
God answered, "It is done." All the mice had beautiful little roller-skates.
About a week later, God decided to check on the cat.
He found her sound asleep on her fluffy pillow. God gently awakened the cat and asked, "Is everything OK? How have you been doing? Are you happy?"
The cat replied, "Oh, it is WONDERFUL. I have never been so happy in all my life! My pillow is fluffy, and those little Meals-on-wheels you have been sending are absolutely delicious!
