    Brilliant clip thank you! Have a peaceful Memorial Day, Caren,Cody and Dakota! Take care

  5. @Kim, EXACTLY!!! MOL!! Happy Memorial Day! xoxo

    @Old Kitty, I know!! The human did sing well too! We are gonna have a HOT Memorial day...going to be 90!!! Hope to be by to visit you soon! I didn't have time again :( Much love to you and Charlie!

    @Cat from Sydney, I'm not going on a picnic but Mom and Dad are! I am staying home with the nice air conditioning! :)

    @Mr.Puddy, I hope your Mom is feeling much better! Ohhh I laugh when I watch this too! I sing for Cody sometimes but I used to sing for Bobo ALL the time!!! I had a special song I used to sing for him called "The Bobo Song!!!" Sometimes I still sing it but change the name to Cody lol. Hope you have a wonderful day!!! xoxoxo

  6. Beautiful voice!
    Thanks for the link, Caren. It helps a lot : )
    By the way, I give Eva normal biscuits but I usually break it into very tiny pieces as I've to watch her diet too.

  7. That was a great video. Just read where you will have 90! Wow, I thought it was going to be hot here with 82 and high humidity.

  8. Awww that is one VERY patriotic puss!! SO cute.♡

  9. WOW! That was terrific fur sure, I loved it!

  10. We think we need a MUCH shorter national anthem!

  11. Hi Caren! As a cat expert, you might be able to help me... My little Avalon has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism this weekend and I really can use all the advice I can get concerning alternative treatments, food to avoid etc.

    Happy Memorial Day... And thank you for the funny video and upcoming advice...

    Kitty kisses xxxxx

    Vanessa & Avalon

  12. @Priscilla THANK YOU! Also I am glad you liked the link :) I was thinking of you this morning. I was just making a broccoli salad to bring to a BBQ this afternoon and I was stirring dressing. Dakota doesn't like when I stir and he barks. I said "Nice boy!!" and he stopped (that is what I do at night before he gets a treat before bed, he barks if Cody gets a treat first so I say "Be a nice boy" and it works) lol. Thanks for the tip!

    @Katnip awwwww I like it!!! :)

    @Brian I loved it too! Glad you liked it!

    @Gods Little People, for sure!!

    @Mario yep 90. Trust me , I am NOT amused lol. I don't do well in this kind of heat due to my chronic kidney stones (medullary sponge kidneys)....we have to go to a BBQ. I told my husband we may only stay no more than an hour or hour and a half if the entire thing is outside. I will never make it in that kind of heat. I don't like summer anymore, (or I should say super hot temps), because of my kidneys. We will eat and run! MOL!!!

    I will try and get to the blogs this evening (I am hoping that I can but I am not sure)...if not...I will be reading them tomorrow night! I haven't been deliberately not coming around!

    Have a great day all!

  13. Ha ha ha -- that kitty's Human has a good voice! You would NOT want to hear mine attempt to sing that (or anything else, MOL)

    Thanks to all who serve our country, from this WWII vet's daughter.

  14. That is PURRty amazing!! I wonder how long it took to train him??

  15. @Spitty same with me!! I can't sing worth a darn but I love to sing!

    @Art and Sew Forth I don't know but he/she sure is good!

  16. @Vanessa & Avalon...whoa!! Noooo I'm not a "cat expert" I am a "cat lover" like YOU! I defer to the "experts" when I have them guest blog about various things. I am soooo sorry to hear about Avalon's diagnosis. What does the vet say? My advice is DO NOT GOOGLE IT. My vet advised that I NEVER Google medical conditions because they will scare the daylights out of you. I have some readers whose cats also have hyperthyroidism and they may have advice for you. Neither of my cats had it so I am not knowledgeable at all about it. There are a couple people you may want to contact on Facebook if you haven't already, Darlene Arden (who wrote "The Complete Cat's Meow" and Ingrid King who wrote "Buckley Story"...both of them are quite well-versed in various feline health issues. If you contact them, tell them I sent you. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

  17. Great video! And what a beautiful voice!!
    We hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day holiday!!

  18. That was one smart Kitty! When our Mom sings, we put our paws over our ears and purray she stops soon, and Winston howls...get the picture!!!

  19. @Tamago I loved it too!!! Thank you!! We had a nice Memorial day but it was sooooooooooooo hot! 90!! Hope you had a great day too!

    @Benny and Lily MOL!

    @Chloe and Cecil another MOL!!!!!

  20. Happy Memorial Day doesn't' sound right, nor does Sad Memorial Day. So we'll say have a nice day with the kitties.

  21. Oh my gosh, that is so cute and hilarious. I laughed every time the cat meowed. Not a bad way to start the day, on a Tuesday when you're all discombobulated and thinking it is Monday. MOL.

  22. Wow what a great video! We never sing along with our mom like that!

    We hope you had a good Memorial Day!

  23. Caren
    That was a great video!

  24. Cody,
    Stop by our house for a fun Meme..we chose you to join with us!

  25. Oh my gosh, what a wonderful video! Adorable!! Thanks for sharing, this really made me smile. :)

  26. We hope you had a great Memorial day !
