A black and white kitty showed up at our door,
A mouse in its jaws it held.
So fat it could not have been hungry,
But on a tender heart it fell.

The cat looked like a panda bear,
So Mom gave it Panda for its name
And summarily disposed of its gift,
Got a bowl of milk Panda drained.

One stormy day Mom was hanging clothes,
Panda curled around her mewing,
That night Panda disappeared,
Mama grieved when the morning came dewing.

A few days later Panda came back!
Holding a baby now in her teeth,
Now the poor kitty was a mom herself,
And my mom laughed with relief.
