A cat died and went to heaven. God said: “You’ve been a good cat all your life, is there anything you desire?”
The cat replied: “Well, I would really like a soft pillow to sleep on.”
God provided the cat with a soft pillow.
The following day six mice died and went to heaven. God told them: “You have been good mice all your lives. Is there anything you desire?”
“Yes,” they said. “We’ve always had to run everywhere and our little legs are tired. We would really like some roller skates so we can get around more quickly.”
And God provided each mouse with a pair of roller skates.
A week or so later, God thought he would check up on the cat who was fast asleep on his pillow.
“Is everything OK?” asked God.
The cat stretched out “I’ve never been happier,” he said. “The pillow is so comfortable and those meals on wheels you’ve been sending over are simply the best!”
