Don’t buy a puppy for Christmas –
They like Christmas at home with their Mum
And puppies can’t tell you their feelings
For unlike human beings, they’re dumb.
Don’t buy a kitten for Christmas –
They are not children’s toys as you’ll know –
And leaving his brothers and sisters
Would be for the kitten a blow.
If you were a poor little puppy,
Or a kitten or any small pet,
If removed by some huge human strangers.
I know you’d miss Mum and would fret.
Pets aren’t good presents for Christmas –
A new home could cause them some fear –
For Christmas, you know, can be noisy -
A day filled with laughter and cheer.
On a day far from these celebrations
Bring a pet to a home quiet and still -
And they’ll soon be one of your family –
Oh yes, I’m quite sure that they will.
