    To the tune of the Doors' "Riders On The Storm"

    Kittens In The Sun

    Kittens in the sun
    Kittens in the sun

    If you give the cats some nip
    They'll run and rip

    If you give the dog a bone
    She'll leave the cats alone

    Kittens in the sun

    There's a possum in the yard
    We're not going all that far

    Take a long holiday
    Let your kittens play

    You know you gotta love your cats
    Yeah you gotta love your cats

    Take them by the paw
    Make them go "awwwww"

    The world will always end, but nine lives never end

    Gotta love your cats

    Kittens in the sun
    Kittens in the sun

    Into a house you're thrown
    So make it all your own

    Just give the dog a bone
    She'll leave the cats alone

    Kittens in the sun ...

    @Tobermorey - My cats don't write songs; in fact, Moo Shu is the only one who even plays an instrument. Are you certain that you wouldn't like a nice Snowshoe cat? Comes with her own electric tuba and three amplifiers! I know that you already know her song:

    (To the tune of Beautiful Dreamer, of course):

    Beautiful Snowshoe, you are so sweet,
    You're Siamese but you have four white feet;
    You've got the Nose Dots, Skunkie Stripe too,
    Beautiful Snowshoe, I'll always Love you.

    Snowshoes are lovely, Snowshoes are smart,
    Snowshoes make rainbows when they poop and f*rt,
    Little black ears and fuzzy black tail,
    I'd never shove you in the garbage pail.

    Snowshoes are just like other Siamese,
    That means their owners can't do as they please,
    At night when I want to lay down my head,
    One rotten Snowshoe takes up the whole bed.

    If you Love Snowshoes, listen to me,
    You'd benefit from some psychiatry;
    When they commit you, I will assume,
    There'll be no Snowshoes in your rubber room.

    To the tune of Fly Me to the Moon:

    He's my Beamer cat,
    Oh yes, he is my Beamer kit cat,
    He's my baby boy,
    oh yes he is my baby doll
    He is my love, yes he is
    He's very sweet, yes he is is...
    not going to finish it, but it went on.
    He loved that song and knew it was his. I miss singing it to him.

    @LisaT. - That's sweet, but you can still sing it. I still sing "their song" to kitties who've been gone forty years and more.

    Since we're doing our cats' purrsonal songs, here's White Tip's. She was the wildest feral I've even known, and even my veterinarian - a close Friend who never gives up - said, "put her back outside." It took years just to be able to touch her once she and her Son, Oz, had come inside. Sssshhhh... she's asleep on the desk beside me right now.


    My little kitty is the best little kitty,
    She is black and white;
    The black shows up in the daytime and
    The white shows up at night;
    She's always smelled good like a nice kitty should,
    She's never been a smelly cat;
    When she came in, she was bones and skin,
    But now she has belly fat!

    My little kitty is the best little kitty,
    Her tail tip is white;
    She plays Mousie-Hockey in
    The middle of the night;
    Her little boy is her pride and joy,
    He's smooth and sleek and black,
    They were born in the great outdoors
    But they're never going back!

    We all know that feral kitties
    Cannot live inside,
    Scared to death of Humans, they will
    Always run and hide;
    White Tip Kitty's past is something
    She can scarce recall,
    White Tip's learned Life's secret -
    That Love will conquer all.

    Wasn't he handsome? :) This is my sweet, gentle Beamer. He passed in January of bone marrow cancer. I have to write a tribute to him. It will be one of these days though. Still hurts too much to write about my baby.

    Beamer’s sweet expression makes me smile, and I want to hold him. Since I can’t, I’ll hold the memory of him in my thoughts. I’m so sorry for your loss, @LisaT. I understand your pain. It took a year before I could write about my Max in the Crossing the Bridge forum.

    Okay, stopping now. My eyes are watering.

    @Tobermorey - Christmas is coming - writing the final verse to O! Tannenbaum Tortitude will distract you. It would also help me out since I'm stuck for a third verse!


    Oh tortitude, oh tortitude,
    It always leaves me feelin' screwed;
    Oh tortitude, oh tortitude,
    A frightful mood do you exude.
    Their ways are crude, and often lewd,
    And I conclude they're simply rude;
    Oh tortitude, oh tortitude,
    Engenders such disquietude!

    Oh tortitude, oh tortitude,
    You use up all my fortitude;
    Oh tortitude, oh tortitude,
    You prey upon my servitude;
    My sofa's scratched, my shoes are chewed,
    You knead me when my knees are nude;
    Oh tortitude, oh tortitude,
    With attitude you are imbued.

    Ooof. A challenge from the master.

    Oh tortitude, oh tortitude
    How beautiful your pattern
    Oh tortitude, oh tortitude
    Your eyes shine like a lantern
    All glowing green they watch me now
    I hear your loud command, “MEOW!”
    Oh tortitude, oh tortitude
    I serve you now with kitty food.

    The alternative (evil) Snowshoe Song (to the tune of Anne Murray's Snowbird):


    Beneath its Snowshoe mantle soft and warm,
    The Snowshoe heart is beating,
    Like a demon taking form;
    The Snowshoe sings the song she always sings,
    It sounds like a wailing Banshee
    Being strangled with shoestrings!

    When I was young my heart was young then too,
    Anything that it would tell me
    That's the thing that I would do;
    She broke into my house one Saturday,
    And she looked so sweet that I decided
    I would let her stay.

    Get this Snowshoe Cat away from me -
    She turns the water on and changes
    Channels on TV;
    She shreds the curtains, Lord, I do beseech,
    Please send this evil Snowshoe
    Far away from Olcott Beach!

    My Friend shows up with pizza, to relax,
    And with him comes his giant English
    Mastiff, Monster Max;
    The doggie screams, we run; what comes in view?
    Two hundred pounds of Mastiff cornered
    By the vile Snowshoe!

    Get this cat away from me once more,
    She opens all the cupboards,
    Pushes dishes on the floor;
    She plays with every light switch she can reach,
    Won't someone take this cat
    A thousand miles from Olcott Beach?

    I set the toaster oven as I choose,
    And I walk away to listen to
    Some story on the news;
    When I return she's standing on the bar,
    And she's looking through the little window
    While two slices char.

    Spread your Demon wings and fly away,
    And go back into the depths of Hades
    Whence you came that day;
    Oh evil Snowshoe I don't know why you chose me,
    I only wish that you would fly
    Away so speedily;
    If I could, you know that I would make you fly away –
    Away from me!

    I was just singing Olive’s song to her last night! She was on a Phantom of the Opera kick.

    Angle of Meowsic, purrs so sweetly
    Bask in my caresses!
    Angel of Meowsic, please dont bite me
    I promise to feed you shortly ...

    To the tune of "Teach Your Children Well," Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

    You who are owned by cats
    Aristocrats that make you sappy
    You buy them all new food
    Because the old won’t make them happy.

    Treat your kitties well,
    You’ll be in hell if you ignore them,
    And feed only the best
    The one they’ll eat, only today though.
    Don't you ever ask them why, they won’t tell you so don’t try,
    You just look at them and sigh
    And know you love them.

    And you, of tender hearts,
    Can't know the arts that your kitties thrive on,
    And so please help them with their food,
    Their attitude will only drain you.

    Treat your kitties well,
    You’ll be in hell if you ignore them,
    And feed only the best
    The one they’ll eat, only today though.
    Don't you ever ask them why, they won’t tell you so don’t try,
    So just look at them and sigh and know you love them.

    @Tobermorey - "Ah, but then one night in some empty room
    Where no curtains ever hung,
    Like a miracle...."


    Once more:
    Encore!
    Also:
    Bravo!

    To the tune of "Feelings" (lyrics by Morris Albert and sung by a slew of people who should have known better)

    Felines, everything is felines,
    Trying to make happy the felines that I love
    Cat drool rolling down on my face.
    Trying to make happy the felines that I love
    Felines, I’ve always loved those felines
    I wish I could have more of you; but three will have to do.
    Felines, wo-o-o felines,
    Wo-o-o, felines snuggled in my arms.

    Etc.
