The Cat's in the Kettle at the Peking Moon

Song parodies are awesome! Sometimes. You be the judge. Do you like Chinese food? Do you like kitty cats?  You can see where this is going? Do you always remember to ask the waiter, 'what is it?'

It ain't pork or chicken, but a fat Siamese,

Yet the food tastes great, so ya don't complain,
But that's not chicken in your chicken chow mein.
Seems to me I ordered sweet and sour pork,
But Garfield's on my fork,
Did you ever think when you eat Chinese,He's purrin here on my fork...

There's a cat in the kettle at the Peking Moon,
The place that I eat everyday at noon,
They can feed you cat and you'll never know,
Once they wrap it up in dough, boys,
They fry it real crisp in dough.

 Chou Lin asked if I wanted more,
As he was dialin up his buddy at the old pet store,
I said not today, I lost my apettite,
There's two cats in my belly and they want to fight,
I was suckin on a Rolaid and a Tums or two,
When I swear I heard it mew, boy,
And that is when I knew...

There's a cat in the kettle at the Peking Moon,
I think I gotta stop eating there at noon,
They say that it's beef or fish or pork,
But it's purrin there on my fork,
There's a hairball on my fork.

It's a Cat's Life. What to Do? What to Do?

Do you wonder what goes through the mind of your cat? What do they think about all day? What would their daily calendar look like it they had one?

8:00 am. Stretch. Curl up. Time to take a nap.

10:00 am. Look out the window. Nap in a sunbeam.

12:00 pm. Lick paws after lunch. Lay down and rest. Snooze.

2:00 pm. Check on the baby. Chase tail twice then lie down for a bit.

4:00 pm. Stretch. Play with yarn for 2 minutes. Rest again.

6:00 pm. Sniff the smells in the kitchen. Pass out under the table.

8:00 pm. My humans are yawning. Me too. Better catch a few ZZZZzzzz's.

10:00 pm. Humans are going to bed. Joining them on their bed.

12:00 am. The house is quiet. Rummage the kitchen, open the cabinets, claw open the kitty nibblets, the barbecue potato chips, and the sweet bread. Pull open the refrigerator and lick the milk carton. Drag the baby's stuffed toys out of the toy box and hide them under the sectional and the recliner. Take a tongue bath. Leave the coughed up hairballs on the dining room tablecloth.

2:00 am. Rejoin the humans upstairs. Approach their snoring faces cautiously. Decide it this is the night to sleep on the male's face or the female's face. Sniff gingerly. Test their reflexes to find the most comatose. Knead claws on their chest to confirm. Carefully curl up in a ball on top of their face.

4:00 am. Stretch. Meow for food. Meow again. Louder. Knead claws on their bellies. Periodically extend a claw, especially into their calves and feet, it works really well. Duck when they throw the first 2 pillows. Rub fur against their legs intermittently as then begin walking toward the kitchen.

6:00 am. Nap Time.
