Pet Adoption | "One Little Kitten Named Mittens"

This playful little Tuxedo kitten has been named Mittens, for a pretty obvious reason. Those tiny, 3-month-old paws, just as snowy white as can be, are all about trying to catch whatever may be moving. And just like with humans wearing mittens, it’s sometimes very difficult to grasp and hold onto things, but she’s not giving up, just like she’s not giving up looking for a forever home.
Ms. Mittens is up for adoption at Aransas County Animal Control. Please call 361-790-0151 to make an appointment to meet her.
In the meantime, here’s the poem/song that so many are familiar with.
The three little kittens they lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear, we sadly fear
Our mittens we have lost
What? Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
We shall have no pie.
Our mittens we have lost.

The three little kittens they found their mittens,
And they began to smile,
Oh, mother dear, see here, see here,
Our mittens we have found
What? Found your mittens, you good little kittens,
And you shall have some pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
We shall have some pie.
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
Our mittens we have soiled
What? Soiled your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then they began to sigh,
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
Our mittens we have soiled.
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,
Our mittens we have washed
What? Washed your mittens, you good little kittens,
But I smell a rat close by.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
We smell a rat close by.
Let's all have some pie.


From Follen, New Nursery Songs for All Good Children (1843)
