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 we humans, they're dumb.

 

Don’t buy a kitten for Christmas.

   They are not children’s toys as you’ll know –

And leaving their brothers and sisters

    Would be for small kittens 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

    For new home could cause them some fear.

Christmas, you know, can be noisy

   And 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 become one of your family.

     Oh yes, I’m quite sure that they will.
