Welcome Summer!!

It wouldn't be the first day of Summer without me repeating the song that I first posted on Cat Chat on June 21st 2010, it has now become our little tradition...Enjoy!

This should be Meowed or sung to the tune of Mungo Jerry's classic "In The Summertime".......

"purr purr-purr uh, purr purr-purr, uh


purr purr-purr, uh, purr purr-purr, uh..."



"In the summertime when the weather is hot

You can stretch right out and be on your favorite cot,


When the weather's fine


You got playing, you got romping on your mind


Have some nip, have a climb



Go out and see what you can find"




"If her Daddy's rich, take her out for some filet,


If her Daddy's poor, just stay in and play,



Speed around the house,



really speed, really speeeed big time my friend,



When the sun goes down, you can make it



make it home before day's end"


"We're no threat, we kitties, we're not dirty, we're not mean


We love everybody, but we do as we please



When the weather's fine

We go fishing or go climbing up some trees


We're always happy



Life's for living, yeah that's our "felineosophy"


"Sing along with us, mew-mew-mew-mew-mew


purr-purr-purr-purr-purr yeah, we're hap-happy.......



mew-mew-mew-mew-mew...."



"Purr purr-purr, uh, purr purr-purr, uh



Purr purr-purr, uh, purr purr-purr, uh...."


"When the winter's here, yeah it's sleepy time


Bring a toy mouse



Wear your finest fur, it'll soon be summertime



And we'll sing again



We'll go jumpin' or maybe we'll settle down



If she's got "noms" or if she's got mice



Bring your kitty friends and we'll all go into town...."



Happy First Day Of Summer All!!

Make This A Great Summer For You And Your Favorite Felines!!


Thanks to Mungo Jerry's "In The Summertime" for the inspiration for this parody.

  32. Hi Cody and Caren,

    Okay, long story, but I had to go through Facebook to get to your site. So hopefully, that PM I sent you is no longer relevant.

    Anyway, welcome to the first day of summer, the um "longest" day in the Northern Hemisphere. Yes, weird, still only 24 hours. And of course, our friends in the Southern Hemisphere are having the first day of winter. The "shortest" day of their year. Yes, weird, still only 24 hours.

    Penny's human,

    Gary :)

  41. I have had beautiful weather here in Washington as well. You might want to be careful, as the photo of those cats in bikinis may be close to violating Google decency standards! :) Meow to Cody!
