A Day In the Life

The day 28 prompt from NaPoWriMo: Tell a story backwards. The first line should say what happened last, and work its way through the past until you get to the beginning. Keep it simple!
One last paw-smudge, knead the warm lump, curl into peace,
call the day done! 
Dash through the halls and crash with abandon,
into paper bags harboring
braided string teasing.
Temptations of fate! Another snake slain!
Tail a’twitch, ears the same, eyes narrowly watch
spring birds flit and flutter, land on bobbing buds
not yet open this springtime.
Hair stands on end when alarm clock jingles,
warm lump of clay groggily grumbles:

“Off, cat! Awake! The new day has called us.”
