Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

Stray Cat Strut---

These photos are not recent [except for the Christmas Mouse], I've taken them from the cats' archives and 'jazzed 'em up a little with cropping'....fitting for the lyrics I hope. Also, the video of the song that I found on You Tube is hilariously funny...cats lip syncing the song ---link at the end of my post.

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Black and orange stray cat sittin' on a fence

I ain't got enough dough to pay the rent

I'm flat broke but I don't care

I strut right by with my tail in the air

Stray cat strut, well, I'm a ladies cat
I'm a feline Casanova, hey man that's that
Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man
Get my dinner from a garbage can

Don't go crossing my path

I don't bother chasing mice around

I'm slinkin' down the alleyway looking for a fight
Howling to the moonlight on a hot summer night
Singin' the blues while the lady cats cry
"Wild stray cat, you're a real gone guy"
I wish I could be as carefree and wild
I got cat class and I got cat style

Photos are of our cats, Tahoe and Winston.

  9. How clever are you!!!??? This was sooo cute!

  10. OH MY GOSH!! Thanks for posting that video link, it brought such a big smile...that guy KNOWS cats, don't ya think?! And at the end he puts in the cast credits (their own cats, I would guess) and a special appearance by Fella as the Back Alley Thug, the black silhouette of cat with guitar, LOL!

    You also did a great job of putting your own winsome felines with the lyrics..."Ain't got enough dough to pay the rent" put me in stitches...he looks so despairing in that box!!

  11. Omigosh how awesome is that video?!! I'd heard the song by the Stray Cats but never saw that video, it's brilliant.

    Loved the pictures you used to go with the song, that black and orange glass cat is just are your real kitties:-) xoxo
