It's Summer and for this Kitty the Livin' is Easy!

Hi my furiends! The Summer Solstice officially arrived in the Eastern Time Zone at exactly 11:54 am !! Today will be the LONGEST day of 2019 for anyone living north of the equator.

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 was called "Cat Chat" back then), 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.......


"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.


  1. Happy first day of summer, Cody. Looks like you're having a great time already. So fun.

    I linked this post to Feline Friday.

    Have a purrfect day and weekend. My best to your mom. ♥

  2. Happy first day of summer. Looks like you got some good planned activities!

  3. Cody, it's GLORIOUS outside today! We just finished a picnic at the office; wonderful sunshine, good folks, and the breeze is to die for!

    1. Yes it IS glorious, but we haven't gone out yet! Hoping to get out this weekend. I used to love outside picnics when I worked in an office.......perfect day for it!

  4. What a fun post! Love the photograph of Cody fishing for Dakota.

  5. MOL, MOL! Loved your meowsinging!
    And Hooray, the sun IS out here too! Maybe the soggy yard will get a bit drier so the peeps don't go squishy when they have to mow that mile high grass...

    Happy Summmertime!

    PS: We can't seem to get our comments to show up on Dakota's blog, nor any WP blogs for that matter...sigh...

    1. thank you!!!! I hope it dries for you too!! That is so strange about Dakota's blog, Terry (Brian's Home) mentioned the same thing. I have no clue why that is happening but you did make me feel better that it is happening to you on all WordPress blogs (I am not happy it's happening, but I am happy it isn't just Dakota's!). Wish I knew how to fix it! (if there is a fix).

  6. Happy first day of summer! With our cold spring and cool temps even now (for the most part), this will be the "hottest" thing of the season. :-P

    1. we have had the same weather as you, crazy! Starting today we are having "summer-like" probably will too!

  7. We enjoyed your song and your pics too! Happy Summer to all of you!

  8. Aww, that last photo is over-the-top adorable! It's overcast and cloudy here on the first day of summer.

  9. Happy First Day of Summer to you Too!!! We love the laying on the beach photo and you getting some rays of the lounge chairs. Too cute. Thanks for the share. Have a pawsome upcoming weekend.

  10. Cody, you are so sweet! We hope Summer brings you all that you hope it does!

  11. After 2 weeks of torrential rain and temperatures in the low 40s, summer arrived today! Happy Summer Solstice!

  12. Hooray for Summer Cody, I’ll join the beach pawty!

  13. Happy Summer Solstice! Although I have to say, we're a little bit unhappy with it here - it RAINED (yes, in southern California!) this morning and it has been gray all day. Hmph.

  14. What a wonderful musical post for a perfect day. It's been into the 90's here regularly, and when it does rain it doesn't last or cool things down much. Have an awesome weekend!

    1. thank you!!! But...please keep the 90s there! 80s are as high as we wanna go!

  15. That is one of our favorite songs and you made it even better because I think your lyrics are better than the original. Very creative mama Caren!!!

  16. Happy Summer, Cody and Caren! We loved what you did with that song. :)

  17. What a great summertime parody for a post great job. Now if we can get rid of all this rain and get some warm weather and sun we'll be in good shape. LOL

    1. thank you!!! We have sunshine and warm temps today! Will send some your way!

  18. Always love this fun post and what’s not to celebrate the longest day of the year!
    We have a three day weekend here and we’re happy the sun is finally out!
    It’s ‘nip time let’s celebrate Cody!

  19. CATZOWEY! Theeeee longest day of the year hit my house in San Franfuncisco at 8:54 am and I was catnapping after Staff served me and myself a purrrfecto breakfast. Pssst I just didn't feel like I got an extra nano meowvalous second of catnapping but purrrrhaps I catnapped through the longest day of the year! Hoorayzatini!
