Sad Cats and Bored Cats

In 1993 Eli and I recorded a sweet little song called "Song For a Sad Cat." I mention this because now, 13 years later, he's come up with a sequel as part of his very disciplined "song-a-day" exercise.

To hear "Song For a Sad Cat" (1993), click here.

To hear "Song For a Bored Cat" (2006), click here and follow the link.

I'd like to point out that my present cat doesn't respond in any way to either song. Like, she doesn't perk up her ears as though there's really a cat in the room. Or maybe she just doesn't like the songs.

Seriously, my cat Ian seemed to enjoy both these songs. His response inspired me to sing a few bars of "cat-neep dream, cat-neep dream, me-ow meow-meow!", to which he did not respond.

Ian's an unusually smart cat, but I guess even HE is unable to handle J-Pop! "A gleen flog firred with cat-neep..."

"Song For A Sad Cat": Gomiya perks up her ears slightly at the loud meow roughly halfway through. Wicket opens one eye toward the end of the song. China does not react.

"Song For A Bored Cat": Gomiya looks over, mildly curious; the sound of Tarquin's voice sometimes means that Tarquin may get food, which she can then steal from him. China continues to sleep. Wicket covers his face with both paws.
