Cats: Tennis, wet, stray, cool, nashville, honky, long tail, and cradle

Yesterday I spiced up my life by going “door knocking.” That’s what I call it when someone stops by a blog, reads the most recent post, clicks on LIKE, possibly leaves a comment, and moves on. It’s like the two Mormon missionary boys who knock on my front door. No time to get to know me. They just have a task to do and that’s it (and it’s amazing how fast they skeedaddle out of here when I tell them I’m a gay man in an 18-year gay marriage).

One of the comments to my post yesterday asked if Zoey the Cool Cat approved of me watching tennis instead of blog camping. You be the judge:

Tennis is the only thing she watches on television, and that’s her tennis-watching position. Since it’s a liquid plasma TV, I think the angle from the chair to the TV allows her to see the tennis ball moving across the screen. She is never interested in anything else on TV, not the birds chirping, not the cats meowing, not the dogs barking…… just tennis.

Right after the Olympic men’s tennis final yesterday, here’s how Zoey the Cool Cat celebrated:

Okay, maybe she didn’t celebrate……… Isn’t it cute how she’s sticking her little pink tongue out at me because I gave her a bath?….lol

In honor of Zoey the Cool (wet tennis) Cat, I thought we would explore cat songs today. Following are favorites from my music collection. “Cat’s in the Cradle” by Harry Chapin, from 1974, is a commentary on the state of the family. It’s even more relevant today than it was 38 years ago.
