Welcome


Twas three weeks before the CCR bottle drive,

And all through the fog,

Not a creature was stirring,

Except for a Dog,

 

For Rascal was too busy,

There was no time to waste,

Her turkey dinner sat untouched,

No time for even a taste,

 

For Rascal was awake,

There was no time to spare,

The CCR bottle drive date,

Rascal had to share,

 

There were cans to collect,

Sick kittens to save,

Rascal had to ensure,

Bottles and cans everyone gave,

 

The money would help,

Sick kittens get better,

And find forever homes,

In answer to Christmas letters,

 

Some rescued kittens, 

Were nestled snug in their beds,

While visions of catnip mice,

Danced in their heads,

 

Other rescued kittens,

Preferred space in a barn,

Where they could be kept safe,

And help out a farm,

 

And the CCR volunteers,

With kittens in their laps,

Had just settled down,

For quick cat naps,

 

When out on the driveway,

There arose such a clatter,

Rascal sprang to the window,

To see what was the matter,

 

When what to her wonderous,

Puppy eyes did appear,

But a bottle depot truck,

Pulled by eight strong reindeer,

 

The driver emerged,

So lively and quick,

That Rascal knew in a moment,

It must be St. Nick,

 

St. Nick came to see Rascal,

As he heard of her heart,

And Rascal's love of kittens,

And the fact she was smart,

 

St. Nick told Rascal,

She had set an example,

A horse trailer full of bottles,

Was just a sample,

 

Rascal also fostered,

There was a need for that,

It took a big team,

To turn a sick kitten into a cat,

 

St. Nick looked at Rascal's list,

Knowing an easy task,

For nothing for herself,

Did the little dog ask,

 

Rascal wanted donations,

The pandemic had been tough,

For animal rescue charities,

Fundraising had been tough,

 

Donations to help dogs,

And sick little kittens,

Like Yogi and Boo Boo,

The poor little mittens,

 

Rascal's Christmas wish,

Was help for dogs and cats,

There was nothing more complicated,

Or easy than that,

 

Rascal did not choose, 

Which rescue it should go to,

As animals needed help,

No matter who they belonged to,

 

St. Nick fed Rascal,

And tucked her into bed,

Told Rascal not to worry,

And to rest her tired head,

 

St. Nick told Rascal,

She need not worry,

Christmas would bring help, 

Including for those furry,

 

The CCR bottle drive,

Would bring people in cars,

Dropping off bottles and cans,

Safely from inside their cars,

 

Kittens would be helped,

There was not doubt of that,

With people's' kind hearts,

They would grow into healthy cats,

 

A life off the streets,

Forever homes kittens would find,

With bottles and cans,

People would be kind,

 

2020 would be gone,

Thank goodness for that,

What better way to celebrate,

Than to rescue a cat,

 

As St. Nick turned to depart,

He left cans from the elves,

Lovingly collected for Rascal,

On their toy shelves,

 

And Rascal heard St. Nick exclaim,

As he departed into the night,

To a safe and successful bottle drive,

And to all a good nite!

 

Save your bottles and cans!

Love Rascal
