Tabby used to scare the birds away from her garden, but one day something happened to change this. When she needed help, it came from somewhere unexpected.

Children's Story: by
Poor old Mrs Tabby was a sad old cat;
Sitting on her sofa, dressed in coat and hat.
She had a leaking roof and didn't know what to do;
Her house was soaking wet and she was wet through, too.
Children's Story: by
She asked a downy duckling if he would fix her leak;
But he was in a hurry and didn't even speak.
She asked a boxer dog, who was going to a fight;
But he, in answer, said to her. "I'm much too scared of heights!"
She asked her best friend Polly, but Polly said. "Meow!
You know I cannot do that. I really don't know how!"
Mr Jackdaw flew down then, as Tabby shed a tear;
He sat down and he waited, her sad tale to hear.
"Is that your only trouble, Mrs Tabby cat?
Give me just a little while. I can see to that!"
Mr Jackdaw flew away. Tabby thought he'd gone;
But soon he came back down again and this time, not alone.
He had brought his family. Tabby let them in;
He asked her for some biscuit crumbs and she fetched the tin.
Tabby didn't realise what they waited for;
Until a dozen roofing tiles were dropped against her door.
Mr Jackdaw got to work with all his family;
They mended Tabby's roof and she made them stay for tea.
Nevermore did Tabby chase them off her land;
She never would forget how they lent a helping hand.
