Subject: Help: Cuddly Pets

I am looking for both the complete lyrics and more information about a song my mom sang to my sister and me in the early 1950s. We called it Cuddly Pets and what we can remember is

Cuddly pets are cute and tidy
Cuddly pets don't need a diddie
Junior's ooky, junior's wet
Trade him for a cuddly pet.

We know there were several verses. My mother found this masterpiece in a science fiction story that she read in one of the science fiction magazines of about 1950, in a tale about android pets that involves the patenting process. The song was part of an advertising campaign. The story may have been titled "Love and Gratitude," or maybe not. We would love to find the story, because one of the characters in it was modeled after my Uncle Herbie, who was a federal judge at the US Patent Office Court of Appeals. Apparently the author knew my uncle, and was familiar with the patent office. Unfortunately, Herb is no longer with us, and no one else in the family has any more information.My mom, my sister and I would love to know more, and to read the story, if possible.

I remember the story.
I read it in a hard bound anthology I got at the local library in the 50s.

A dishonest person hacks into a computer system.
It had some sort of voice recognition capability.
He sings the cuddly pets song while he is working.
He returns home to find his house full of cuddly pets.

Unfortunately, that's all I remember (or perhaps misremember)

Good luck.

Thank you all for your input. I'm off to search those science fiction leads.
