It's Back to the Cat | Or the Other Way Around

Just came across an old song from an old television show. Both are cute.

Here ya go, Kitties.

well yuck bevie. This song is basicly about someone trying to get rid of a kitty. Putting the kitting in a canon - OK, I wasn't lauching.
I guess I don't have much of a sense of humor when it comes to cats in what I think is mean spirited.

I did like the next video with the dog jumping around like a crazy thing.

Sorry about that. I forget that others do not see things as I do (because I don't see what was intended).

There's a love song that makes me think of a horse every time I hear it. There's another song in which the lyrics speak of passionate sex, but when I hear it I think of God. Don't make me explain it. It's really complicated.

I take things from music no one else seems to.

So I apologize for offending you. I'll try to bear that in mind before I post anything of a similar nature.

Thanks for letting me know. A lot of people wouldn't tell me. Thanks.

I'm on all the mailing list for PETA, MSPCA, ASPCA, Best Friends Animal Shelter, Alley Cats and there are so many stories of abuse . . .
I try to stop reading when I realize it's another heart breaker -but often times I'm locked in the horror.

Sadly, too many actually think abuse of animals, especially cats, is funny.
when children see jokes like this it gives them the wrong impression of acceptable behavior.

I realize I'm overly sensetive, ESPECIALLY when it comes to cat.
Just adore the little darlings.

Spent 5 hours playing with the kitties at the Pat Brodie Shelter for cats.

You've nothing to apologize for. All you did was tell me you didn't think the video was funny, and why.

I'm glad you feel comfortable enough to tell me.

Thanks for being understanding.
I'm actually quite vocal - which can make me rather unpopular at times.

I attended a comedy night fundraiser last year for the Pat Brody Shelter.
That day, I found a seriously injured cat on the side of the road. (I and 2 others stopped -isn't that lovely) I took the kitty to the vet and found the kitties owner.
One of the comedians had a 'skit' about 'road kill' and even referred to their suffering. I was SO upset, had to hold back tears as I thought of that little black kitty on the side of the road. Plus, I thought it was POOR material for an animal shelter.

I know a lot about being unpopular. Just talk to my relations.

No. This blog is for ALL of us, and I want ALL of us to be happy with it. I won't remove the post because the comments are useful and important.

But I want the blog to be fun. My mistake was in forgetting how I receive humor. Especially from music. I do not use the entire song to be amused.

What I was struck by was the phrase, "The Cat Came Back". In my head I saw the games we have played with Firestar, Baby Boy, and B.J.Honeycat in the past. If you were to ask me anything about the rest of the video I couldn't tell you. In fact, I don't know the words to the song beyond, "The Cat Came Back".

But I am odd that way and I need to be more careful on a blog which is not for me alone.

I am so happy you called me on it, though. Historically, people just get angry and fade away. Then I am left to wonder for the rest of my life just what it was I did to send them off. Now I know to be more sensitive regarding the things I choose.

Thank you for remaining part of Firestar'sAlley Cat Walk.

Wasn't much of a cat fight, was it? (That was funny, right? [hopeful smile])

Just a love song.

“She’s got tuna. I know she’s got tuna.”

“Shut up, Sethra. Stay on mission.”

“What’s the mission? I thought the mission was to get tuna.”

“No, you stupid fluffbrain—it’s to escape and become outdoor cats, walking by ourselves, on our wild lone, waving our tails.”

“Oh, yeah? And isn’t it you, my dear stripy sister Aliera, who keeps pushing the FEED button on the printer and waiting for tuna to come out?”

“That was when I was much younger. Anyway, she’s at the computer—yes, eating tuna casserole—so we can go into the bedroom and see if we can knock the window screen out.”
“You do it, Aliera. I’d rather mess with her stuff.”

“Will you GET OVER that fixation on her wristwatch?”

“I like the feel of the Velcro on my paws. Hey! That reminds me. We’ve been declawed. How are we going to survive as outdoor cats?”

“New plan coming up….”

“What’s the big deal about being outside cats? Even StalkerCat, who used to hang around and chat us up, is a house cat now and loving it. We’ve got it made—food, petting, toys, valet service for the litter box, and we get to sleep on her bed twenty hours a day. And we can stick our noses up to the window and smell anything interesting going on outside. Why ruin a perfect situation?”

“Sethra, have you no sense of adventure? No curiosity? No cattitude? We were meant to live wild and free, to stalk and slay our prey, to be mistresses of the night!”

“Look, we’re cats. We were meant to rule the world, but that doesn’t mean we have to WORK at it. You can if you want, but I don’t need to. After all, I’M beautiful!

“Did I mention she’s got tuna?”

At 8, you'd think Mikey would understand that he's a carnivore. But, no, he's rather fond of the shrubbery! At 20+ pounds, the veggie-enhanced diet is likely mitigated by a love for long naps on a warm comforter, wet cat food, begging at the table, and a nice lap to drape himself upon in the evening. And he drools when he's happy, which may or may not mean there's a Siamese ancestor lurking in the old dna.

What? Green teeth attract mice!

Firestar is a tough cat. He has to be, living in Minnesota. He takes care of his family: wife, husband and their son. This was recently proven by his daring capture of yet another mouse in the house. Foolish rodents. They never learn. When not engaged in derring do, Firestar naps, looks out the window and sleeps. Firestar was born in April of 2006.
