Frankie the dog was sleeping when his friend Poppy the cat came in. They were at home, in Cabra in Dublin, with their family.
Poppy jumped on top of Frankie. Frankie woke up and said, “I want breakfast.”
“I want some too,” said Poppy. They went downstairs to the kitchen. Their human family was getting their breakfast ready but Poppy and Frankie jumped up on the table and started eating the human breakfast.

Poppy tried to get back into the house, but the door was locked.
Frankie said, “We probably shouldn’t be bad like this, because Santa wouldn’t like it and we’ll be on the Naughty List.”
They decided to write a letter to Santa to help them.

We really need your help because we’re starving, and we’re really sorry about stealing them sausages!
