Living in the lap of luxury.

A cat died of natural causes and went to heaven, where he was greeted by the Lord himself. The Lord said to the cat, "you lived a good life, and if I can make your stay in Heaven any more comfortable please let me know."

The cat said, "Lord, all of my life I've lived with a poor family and had to sleep on a hard wooden floor."

The Lord stopped the cat and said, "say no more." A large, puffy pillow appeared for the cat.

A few days later six mice were killed in a tragic farm accident. They went to Heaven where they also met the Lord, and were greeted with the same offer.

"Well, all our lives we've had to run from cats, dogs, and even women with brooms. Running, running, running! We're tired of running! Do you think we could have some roller skates so we don't have to run anymore?"

The Lord said, "say no more," and he fit each mouse with beautiful new roller skates.

A week later the Lord stopped by to see the cat and found him snoozing on the brand new pillow. The Lord gently woke the cat and asked him, "how are things since you got here?"

The cat stretched and yawned and replied, "it is absolutely wonderful here, Lord! Better than I could have ever expected. Oh, and by the way, those meals on wheels you've been sending are the best!"
