Subtraction Cat

fat cat
A cat that was fat,
Liked to subtract,
Liked making small things go away...
One day she spied mice,
She treated them nice,
3 of them joined cat to play...
But then
1was gone,
And fat cat played on,
Playing with
2 little mice,
Until there was
And cat wasn't done,
Playing with cat,
Had a price...
Then there were none,
What had cat done?
She'd eaten the last little mouse...
Fat lazy cat,
Hadn't done that,
She'd brought them to play at her house...
