Popular Cat Nursery Rhymes

Here's a short collection of some of the more popular
nursery rhymes that have cats in them or are about cats.
Cat themed nursery rhymes are fun to read and enjoy.
They are great for reading to children who these days
are in need of some good, clean reading material that
will give good thoughts to their imaginations.

Kitty Cat Kitty Cat
Kitty Cat, kitty cat, where have you been?
I've been to London to visit the Queen.
Kitty Cat, kitty cat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under her chair.

The Two Cats of Kilkenny
There once were two cats of Kilkenny.
Each thought there was one cat too many.
So they fought and they fit.
And they scratched and they bit.
Until, except for their nails,
And the tips of their tails.
Instead of two cats, there weren't any!

As I was Going to St. Ives

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Every wife had seven sacks,
Every sack had seven cats,
Every cat had seven kits,
Kits , cats , sacks , and wives,

How many were going to St. Ives?

The Cats went out to Serenade
The cats went out to serenade
And on a banjo sweetly played;
And summer nights they climbed a tree
And sand, "My love, oh, come to me!"

Five Little Kittens
Five little kittens, sleeping on a chair.
One rolled off, leaving four there.
Four little kittens, one climbed a tree
To look in a bird's nest; then there were three.
Three little kittens, wondered what to do.
One saw a mouse; then there were two.
Two little kittens, playing near a wall.
One little kitten chased a red ball.
One little kitten, with fur soft as silk,
Left all alone to drink a dish of milk.

Hey Diddle Diddle, the Cat and the Fiddle

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

Three Little Kittens
Three little kittens,
They lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh mother dear,
We sadly fear,
That we have lost our mittens.

What! Lost your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow,
No, you shall have no pie.

The three little kittens,
They found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,
See here, see here,
We have found our mittens.

What! Found your mittens,
You silly kittens!
Then you shall have some pie.
Purr-r, purr-r, purr-r,
Oh, let us have some pie.

The three little kittens,
Put on their mittens,
And soon ate up the pie;

Oh, mother dear,
We greatly fear,
That we have soiled our mittens.

What! Soiled your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then they began to sigh,
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
Then they began to sigh.

The three little kittens,
They washed their mittens,
And hung them out to dry;
Oh mother dear,

Look here, look here,
We have washed our mittens.
What! Washed your mittens,
You're good little kittens .
But I smell a mouse close by!
Hush! Hush! Hush!
I smell a mouse close by

My Kitten Stretches
My kitten stretches one paw high,
With the other she'll touch the sky.
Then says "Meow" and turns around,
Then folds her paws and sits right down!

Two Little Kittens
Two little kittens, one stormy night,
Begun to quarrel, and then to fight;
One had a mouse, the other had none,
And that's the way the quarrel begun.

"I'll have that mouse," said the biggest cat;
"You'll have that mouse? We'll see about that!"
"I will have that mouse," said the eldest son;
"You shan't have the mouse," said the little one.

I told you before 'twas a stormy night;
When these two little kittens began to fight;
The old woman seized her sweeping broom,
And swept the kittens right out of the room.

The ground was covered with frost and snow,
And the two little kittens had no where to go;
So they laid them down on the mat at the door,
While the old woman finished sweeping the floor.

Then they crept in, as quiet as mice,
All wet with snow, and cold as ice,
For they found it was better, that stormy night,
To lie down and sleep than to quarrel and fight.

Kitten Fingers
Five little kittens, standing in a row.
See them bow to the children so.
They run to the left. They run to the right.
They stand up and str-e-tch in the bright sunlight.
Along comes a dog,
Looking for some fun.
MEOW! See those five kittens run!

The Owl and the Kitty-Cat

The Owl and the Kitty-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Kitty! O Kitty, my love,
What a beautiful Kitty you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Kitty you are!"

Kitty said to the Owl, "You elegant fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed away for a year and a day,
To the land where the Bong-tree grows,
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
You ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will."

So they took it way and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

Cat Kisses

Sandpaper kisses
On a cheek or a chin -
That is the way
for a day to begin!

Sandpaper kisses
A cuddle and a purr.
I have an alarm clock
That's covered in fur!

I'm only a Cat

I'm only a cat,
and I stay in my place...
Up there on your chair,
on your bed or your face!

I'm only a cat,
and I don't finick much...
I'm happy with cream
and anchovies and such!

I'm only a cat,
and we'll get along fine...
As long as you know
I'm not yours... you're all mine!
