SueH Lyr/Chords Req: Songs about cats (108* d) RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Songs about cats 03 Oct 01


Heavens, Grab, you really do have an attitude don't you? Most cats which have been reared with any thought & subsquently neutered ('altered') use their litter trays or go outside.

I breed Burmese. They aren't fluffy. They crap in their trays. And you won't have encountered any of my kittens; I don't sell them to people who let them out, nor to those who don't treat them properly. They get in cars & end up hundreds of miles away. They traumatise all moggies within a 5 mile radius. They go into your neighbours' houses & make themselves at home. They are called 'the dogs of the cat world', because they are so people-oriented - but they are the epitome of the difference between the dog & the cat. I am proud to have bred them for the last 20 years.

Fortunately, they also housetrain themselves, so whoever wrote the song Genie quoted didn't have Burmese. Nor did the people you have encountered - nor did they own any other properly bred pedigree kitten, for that matter.

Farms? Of course, farmers with entire(un-neutered) cats ('we keep them to keep the rats/mice/vermin/(*insert own word here) down') & other irresponsible people are in fact responsible for 90-odd percent of the general, untrained, unneutered moggie population. And the litters of kittens with leukaemia, feline Aids, etc, etc., put down en masse by rescue centres. You hate cats? What about the irresponsible people who put these cats on the street, in the care of irresponsible owners? 'Farms' are probably responsible for 50% of the cats you are ranting about.

Apologies for the rant; but you really can't blame the animal for its conception or its owner. Incidentally, I also own dogs & birds (& used to own various rodents when the children were younger, including rats) & I should feel just as strongly about the random & irresponsible breeding of any of them, too). Just remember where the fault lies.
Just to keep on topic, our flautist (also a cat owner & lover) loves the 'Nobody's Moggy Now' song. And a number of others. So far we have managed to disuade him from performing them in public.
