"In The Summertime" From The Cats!

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.......


"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!!

Remember, keep a fresh supply of water available at all times for your kitties, outdoor kitties take your flea meds!

Keep them away from pools, lakes, BBQ's, fire pits, dangerous garden plants and other outdoor hazards.

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.


  1. This is definitely hilarious! I love all the pictures and the best I like is the 3 buddies. The three musketeers!!!

    Thanks for the summer advice. It goes well to the doggies too.

    Happy Summer!!!

  2. Priscilla thanks so much!!!
    I like that photo too. It is amazing how many cat photos are NOT available for use on the Internet due to copyright issues. I found a good site with photos that I CAN use!
    Have to start taking them of my own cat to get around that problem.
    Yes the advice IS great for doggies too!!
    Thanks for reading and commenting!

  7. I think we all can agree this version of the song is infinitely better than the original. OK, maybe dogs wouldn't agree. And dog owners. And people who don't like cats (WHAT?!?). But definitely everyone else.
