Pit A Pat The Tabby Cat- unknown author

Looking for the words to this poem from an old nursery rhymes book of my children. We had 2 cats named Pit a Pat.

"Pit a Pat was a tabby cat, who never could remember; she'd frequently roam and forget her home, and not get back 'til December. She'd chew her soup and drink her bread, in summer she'd ride around on a sled...Pit a Pat couldn't remember."

There were quite a few verses to it.

If you find it, kindly email.

Thanks Everyone!
by: Jessica

Thanks to everyone in helping to find this. 'Pitapat' was the most important nursery rhyme of my childhood. For years I have longed to find it and hear it again. Now that I have, my sister plans to read it to me on my 68th birthday next week, just like she did when I was 5 years old.

I am so grateful. Thanks to all. Means so much to me.

Pitter Pat
by: Helen

Cannot believe there are so many other people that remember this lovely little storey - no one of my age whom I know has heard of it. Good to know others enjoyed it as well. It appeared in a little cat-shaped book with a kind of felt type material on the front cover with her face and back cover with the back of her. I remember pictures of her bed (pink with heart-shaped holes on head and foot boards)? It was my mother and aunts' favourite book to read to me when very small - we all loved Pitter Pat! Lovely warm memories of childhood.

She'd get to the door of the grocery store and forget what it was what she was going for. She never could remember.

Pit a pat
by: Judy Dutruch

This little poem was published as a single book, and also in a larger book of children's stories and poems. I know because we used to have the book, and this was one of my favorites. I would love to find that book and buy it.

Thank you. I have been looking for the words to this for years. It was my favourite poem as a child and my Dad read it to me over and over again and again. The poem was part of a bigger book that had stories and pies in it not a singular book.

Pit-a-pat
by: Anonymous

Pitapat was a tabby cat who never could remember.
She'd frequently roam and forget her home and not get back till December. Pitapat, the tabby cat, did everything upside down. She'd wear her boots when the sun was bright, when you'd say good morning, she'd say good night! Though she didn't mean to be impolite, she never could ever get any-
thing right--Pitapat couldn't remember. Pitapat, the forgetful cat, was always dreaming. She'd get to the door of the grocery store and forget what it was she was going for, she'd have to go home and start over once more--Pitapat couldn't remember. Oh, she'd chew her soup and drink her bread; she'd sleep in the bathtub instead of her bed; in summer she'd ride around on a sled! But one day something happened! This remarkable cat named Pitapat was playing at being an acrobat. She was swinging away on a high trapeze, her whiskers were blowing about in the breeze--when suddenly she stopped, in the middle to sneeze--right in the middle of the sir, if you please! Down Pitapat went--paws over tail, flip-flop-plop, in her mother's pail. Well, they put her to bed and gave her some pills, her friends bought bouquets of daffodils, and Father Cat paid all the doctor bills. In a day or two Pitapat felt better; she was able to go to an operetta. But from that day on she never forgot things like--rain is wet, and stoves are hot, she remembered her name and where she was going. She learned to read books and do fancy sewing. And now when Pitapat goes to the store, she remembers what she is going for. She drinks her soup and chews her bread, she even remembers to sleep in her bed. It
was really a pity that Pitapat fell, but now she remembers, I'm happy to tell. And that is the story of Pitapat , the remarkable little girl tabby cat.

Pit A Pat
by: John

Annie, Poem wasn't printed in a book. I have it as a softback book cut in the shape of a cat. Says it was copyright 1949 by Whitman Publishing Co, Racine, Wisconsin. I got it for Christmas in 1953. That's it. Sorry to be so long in replying. John

Pitapat
by: John

Sorry, I can't include the cute pictures, but here is the story.

PIT-A-PAT by Florence Sarah Winship

PITAPAT was a tabby cat
Who never could remember.
She’d frequently roam and forget her home
And not get back till December.

Pitapat, the tabby cat,
Did everything upside down.
She’d wear her boots when the sun was bright ,
When you’d say good morning, she’d say good night!
Though she didn’t meant to be impolite,
She never could ever get anything right---
Pitapat couldn’t remember.

Pitapat, the forgetful cat,
Was always dreaming.
She’d get to the door of the grocery store
And forget what it was she was going for,
She’d have to go home and start over once more---
Pitapat couldn’t remember.

Oh, she’d chew her soup and drink her bread;
She’d sleep in the bathtub instead o her bed;
In summer she’d ride around on a sled!

But one day something happened!

This remarkable cat named Pitapat
Was playing at being an acrobat.
She was swinging away on a high trapeze,
Her whiskers were blowing about in the breeze,
When suddenly she stopped, in the middle to sneeze---
Right in the middle of the air, if you please!

Down Pitapat went---paws over tail,
Flip-flop-plop, in her mother’s pail.

Well, they put her to bed and gave her some pills,
Her friends brought bouquets of daffodils,
And Father Cat paid all the doctor bills.
In a day or two Pitapat felt better;
She was able to go to an operetta.

But from that day on she never forgot
Things like---rain is wet, and stoves are hot,
She remembered her name and where she was going.
She learned to read books and do fancy sewing.

And now when Pitapat goes to the store,
She remembers what she is going for.
She drinks her soup and chews her bread,
She even remembers to sleep in her bed.

It was really a pity that Pitapat fell,
But now she remembers, I’m happy to tell.
And that is the story of Pitapat
The remarkable little girl tabby cat.
