FlourishAnyway believes there is a playlist for just about any situation and is on a mission to unite and entertain the world through song.

Here's the ultimate playlist of songs for people who love cats.

Here's the ultimate playlist of songs for people who love cats.

Cat Lovers Are a Breed Apart

Give me a random cat and a random human and I'll tell you exactly which one I'd prefer to spend time with. We cat ladies and cat dudes are a special breed of "purr-son." Call us unusual, eccentric, or even a little nuts. No matter. We just love the quiet confidence and companionship of our cats.

Cat people eagerly strike up conversations with complete strangers over Lula's latest escapades or Mr. Twinkles' medical saga. We share our homes, our hearts, our beds, and yes, even our dinners with these intuitive four-legged divas. And we'll often go to great lengths to please and protect them.

Celebrate Your Love of Felines

Case in point: I've taken a cat right out of the arms of an animal control officer who arrived at a parking lot to pick up a stray cat in trouble. I told him that no, I was adopting that one.

Rather than being carted off to the Big House that day with no chance of parole (it's a kill shelter), that Kitty quickly came home with me, loose in my car. Desperate times call for desperate measures. (Yeah, it's probably good that I got married long before my love of cats took center stage.)

Whether you have two cats or 10, you can celebrate your affinity for frisky felines with your own cat lover's play list. Here is a list of pop, rock, and country song selections to help get you started.

Cat ladies and cat dudes love to share stories about their cats.

Cat ladies and cat dudes love to share stories about their cats.

Enough Already with the Stereotypes

Naysayers may depict cat dudes and ladies as lonely, unfashionable, and friendless. They particularly paint cat ladies as single older women who ride around with half-used bags of Meow Mix in their trunks feeding strays. They depict us as spending money we don't have spaying and neutering cats we don't know.

Well, I say enough already with those pesky stereotypes. A person could be toting worse cargo. And who couldn't use a good neutering? So, cat lovers, snuggle up with your feline friends, pull up your Hello Kitty knee socks, and have a little fun with the stereotype as you enjoy some good music.

1. "I Happen to Like Cats" by Granger Smith

This country star might mean this 2018 ditty as a joke, but cat ladies like me see him as one helluva catch! He'd rather spend his Saturday nights at home with his favorite four-legged friends than do anything else. What an awesome man. I bet he's an incredible conversationalist, too. Who doesn't love talking about Fluffy and Munchkins?

Celine Dion Looks Sad. Does She Need a Cat?

2. "All By Myself" by Celine Dion

This power ballad by Celine Dion (1996) is a remake of an old favorite by Eric Carmen. It reminds cat people that sometimes a little human contact won't hurt, especially if they, too, enjoy cats.

Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure.

All by myself
Don't want to be all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't want to live all by myself anymore.

3. "Super Freak" by Rick James

"She really loves cats. I mean Really. Loves. Cats." If your new boyfriend has to describe you this way, then perhaps this 1981 song by Rick James may be appropriate. Just roll with it.

4. "Another Saturday Night" by Cat Stevens

Maybe you're a cat-loving dude who finds himself at home on Saturday nights in the company of your cats while others go out on the town prowling. If so, then Mr. Lonesome Tomcat, you can identify with this 1963 song by Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens—how purrfect is that!?!).

Another Saturday night and I ain't got nobody,
I have some money 'cause I just got paid.
How I wish I had someone to talk to,
I'm in an awful way.

5. "Rescue Me" by Fontella Bass

Every cat lover knows that when you rescue a cat, there's no question the cat rescues you back.

Years ago, I rescued a beautiful tortie feral kitten who nearly lost her eye to complications from an upper respiratory infection. I nursed her back to health and spent so much on a veterinary eye specialist that I lovingly called Little Speedy my "money cat."

Several years later I developed optic neuritis, a very painful eye condition that left me temporarily temporarily blind in one eye. (It was a painful complication of Multiple Sclerosis lasting several months.) Little Speedy stuck my side the entire time, unwavering.

This song by Fontella Bass (1965) is a tribute to Little Speedy and all the feline heroes like her:

Rescue me
Oh take me in your arms
Rescue me
I want your tender charms
'Coz I'm lonely and I'm blue
I need you and your love too.

Love Me, Love My Cats

Cat ladies come with one condition:  love me, love my cats.

Cat ladies come with one condition: love me, love my cats.

6. "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" by Stevie Wonder

Cat lovers know that when they adopt a cat it's a lifelong "fur-ever" commitment. Stevie Wonder commemorates that bond of companionship and love in this 1970 classic.

7. "Stray Cat Strut" by The Stray Cats

This 1980s rockabilly band was called The Stray Cats, and in 1981 they released this single that paid homage to alley cats, who get their meals wherever they can find them and often find themselves in fisticuffs with other strays. Feed the ferals, and fix them too!

8. "You Belong To Me" by Carly Simon

Like people, some cats spend time on the down low at the neighbors' house, believing you won't find out their secret. Missing collars, weight gain, spending more time away from home ... those are tell-tale signs that your cat has been steppin' out.

If you have a cat like I do who enjoys sharing two homes, this 1978 song by Carly Simon can help you sing your sorrows until Kitty returns:

You don't have to prove to me
That you're beautiful to strangers
Well I've got lovin' eyes of my own, my own.

Cats: They Cheat Too

When my Maine Coon cat, George Clooney, started packing on the pounds, we discovered that he had been splitting his time between our home and a neighbor's.  Divided loyalties?

9. "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" by Frankie Valli

From the tickle of their whiskers to their outstretched paws, what animal could possibly be more beautiful to behold than a cat? Pay homage to the grace and beauty of your feline friends with this 1967 pop song by Frankie Valli.

Pull up a Pillow and Talk to Mama

What cat isn't comforted by the heartbeat and tender hands of a loving human?  What human isn't comforted by the soft purring of a content cat?

What cat isn't comforted by the heartbeat and tender hands of a loving human? What human isn't comforted by the soft purring of a content cat?

10. "You Really Got A Hold On Me" by The Miracles

Not all cats are well behaved, but somehow cat people still put up with their misdeeds. When I was a child, our family took in a pesky white stray that we named Snowball Pete after the ice cream man.

Snowball Pete enjoyed hiding behind corners so he could jump out at my mother and bite her legs hard, kicking at her with all fours. He'd also hop up on the kitchen table at breakfast to steal the bacon before all of us kids could arrive to the table. Fun times!

If you can't help but loving a cat like Snowball Pete, then you'll identify with these 1962 lyrics by The Miracles:

I don't like you, but I love you
Seems that I'm always thinkin' of you
Though you treat me badly, I love you madly
You've really got a hold on me.

11. "Because You Loved Me" by Celine Dion

In this 1996 pop song, Celine Dion thanks someone special for their love, support and encouragement. Could she be sending a shout-out to a dear feline in her life? Cat lovers know that there's no one who listens to problems quite like Kitty.

Cat Convention: Meeting Of the Minds

Board meeting of the fat cats.

Board meeting of the fat cats.

12. "What's New Pussycat" by Tom Jones

It's hard to believe that women ever tolerated Tom Jones or any man calling them "pussycat" without some severe scratches to his face or bites to his nether regions. However, you do have to admit that the 1965 song is catchy. Sing it to your cat and she probably won't mind.

Hey, Cat Lady! Looks like the Word Is Out

You know the word is out if you get a security challenge that says this.

You know the word is out if you get a security challenge that says this.

13. "Lean On Me" by Bill Withers

Bill Withers (1972) knows that there's no one quite like a cat to lend support and friendship, in good times and bad:

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on.

If you suspect animal hoarding, don't just stay silent.  Report the situation to your local police, animal control and/or Humane Society.  Lives depend on you.  Hoarding is not rescuing.  Real cat ladies and dudes don't hoard.

If you suspect animal hoarding, don't just stay silent. Report the situation to your local police, animal control and/or Humane Society. Lives depend on you. Hoarding is not rescuing. Real cat ladies and dudes don't hoard.

14. "You've Got A Friend" by James Taylor

In this 1971 classic, James Taylor seems to understand the reliability and companionship that only a cat can provide. If you're sad, cats will help you binge watch episodes of CSI while you stuff your face with Oreos and get a good caffeine buzz off Dr. Pepper. Then Kitty will help you follow it up with a three-hour nap. Who else would do that for you?

When you're down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night.

Friends don't eat friends.

Friends don't eat friends.

15. "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" by The Tokens

At the heart of every house cat is a fierce lion. His jungle may only be your living room, but he utterly the king of it. This 1961 song by The Tokens captures the royalty that is cats large and small.

16. "Maneater" by Hall & Oates

This 1982 Hall & Oates song refers to an untamed "she-cat" who will "chew you up" and "really rip your world apart." The song duo seems suspiciously familiar with feral cats. Could they be cat dudes?

Cat whiskers should never be trimmed.  Cats use them for several key purposes:  navigation, expressing his or her mood, and assessing whether the cat can fit through an opening.

17. "Missing You" by Tyler Hilton

Tyler Hilton (2012) knows that there's nothing worse than a loved one who has left you or gone missing:

Every time I think of you
I always catch my breath
And I'm still standing here and you're miles away

And I wonder why you left
And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight.

18. "Dear Future Husband" by Meghan Trainor

All I have to say about this song by Meghan Trainor (2014) is "Dear Future Husband, Marry me, marry my cats." As if the cat eye make-up and leopard print bustier didn't give it away already!

This is one of my cats, Stella, rescued from a paper mill that was closing.  She was fearful and dirty gray at the time, but she cleaned up  beautifully.  She is such a good friend.

This is one of my cats, Stella, rescued from a paper mill that was closing. She was fearful and dirty gray at the time, but she cleaned up beautifully. She is such a good friend.

19. "Baby Come Back" by Player

This 1977 song by Player captures the heartbreak and desperation of wanting a loved one who has gone away to return. Even while you try to go about your normal routine, you may find yourself obsessing about if and when they'll return.

If you've lost your cat, look everywhere for him or her and don't give up. They tend to stick close to home and may be hiding or stuck in a neighbor's shed or crawl space. Offer rewards, hang flyers, and talk with your neighbors. Check your local animal shelters repeatedly. Don't just call; go there to look for your cat. Also, consider microchipping as a preventive measure.

Cats sleep from 12-20 hours a day, primarily in the form of brief naps.  They experience REM, suggesting they do dream.

20. "Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars

You must have respect for an animal who sleeps an average of 15 hours a day and doesn't feel guilty about it. In this 2011 song, Bruno Mars downshifts and adopts the cool cat lifestyle, at least for the day. We could all afford to do that from time-to-time.

21. "Thank You For Being A Friend" by Andrew Gold

The close relationship between cat and cat lover is beautifully reflected in this 1978 song by Andrew Gold:

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidante.

Smitten with His Kitten

Looks like someone loves his kitty cat!

Looks like someone loves his kitty cat!

22. "Diva" by Beyoncé Knowles

Even when you take cats off the street and set them up in a cushy home, you can't forget that they're carrying weapons: razor-sharp claws and teeth.

This song by Beyoncé Knowles (2009) is edgy and street-wise, just like cats and those who must bow down to them.

Time to Call in Technical Support

Got computer work?  If you're a cat lover, you're never short of technical assistance.  These two cats are standing by ready to lend a paw or walk over a keyboard.

23. "Royals" by Lorde

Most of us can never hope to be royalty, but thanks to our cats we can rub whiskers with nobility every day. Pay homage to their blue blood and your lack of it with this 2013 song by Lorde.

Royal Cat

This cat lounges on the grounds of Versailles in Paris.  Could he be royalty?

We had a new one, a unique silver tabby, show up on our porch a few months ago (that's the second "volunteer" in less than a year). He must have known we were grieving the loss of our cancer cat whom we lost in early April. Seven cats are a handful but I wouldn't trade them for anything. They've been great company during the lockdown.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on July 17, 2020:

Your house sounds like a great place to show up if in need of a good home. Your furry babies must provide many smiles each day. Give them some extra petting sessions from me. (Smile)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 11, 2020:

Peggy - They certainly do! They are people in fur coats, some brash and bold, others shy, agreeable, or anxious. Right now I have six indoor cats, all former ferals or rescues from our neighborhood who knew where to come. Our numbers fluctuate a little because we have older cats with medical issues and "volunteers" who show up at our door looking for a spay/neuter, shots, regular food source, and sometimes a home inside. We have always had a large house where the happy pets outnumber the people.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 11, 2020:

I grew up in a family that had both dogs and cats. Now my husband and I have had both. They are great. Every one of them has had a distinct personality, and they all bring smiles and joy into our lives.

Suzie from Carson City on April 17, 2019:

He wanted to cuddle and hug like a human baby! I couldn't get over that video......a wild cat being so sweet and lovable. The boys hair is the identical color of that cat's fur.......it is a very touching scenario. After watching it, my own babies seemed so small!

Yes! Very glad he was rescued. Looks like no one is more grateful than Kitty himself! I sent it to a few of my cat-loving friends. They all love it too.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 17, 2019:

Paula - He's beautiful. I'm so glad the boy saved him. I always worry about the animals in forest fires. Wonder if they have problems with him scratching the furniture?

Suzie from Carson City on April 17, 2019:

LOL...THAT's what I call a C A T !!!! Would love to have him. :))

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on April 17, 2019:

Paula - Totally made my day! Thanks for sharing!

Suzie from Carson City on April 17, 2019:

Hi!! Had to find a way to send this to you. I just know you're gonna love it!!...Paula

Kristen L. Wilson - Aww. Although my activism has traditionally been in spay/neuter, I previously fostered and adopted out cats with a very small humane group about 10-15 years ago. I love that you're using some of the songs in this way, as I totally understand the challenge of getting people to see the kitten or cat on display as potentially theirs. Give hugs to all your kitties. May they all find terrific furr-ever homes!

Kirsten L. Wilson on January 27, 2019:

Thanks for this comprehensive list of CAT songs. I am a one cat parent and every song applies to my sweetheart really. But my objective in this search was to find one i could apply to videos of cats up for adoption at the place where i volunteer and i was able to find several. I hope to make the videos of the cars out of their cages while they are at play an addition to our website with only standard in cage photos to appeal more to the public. The music can often make the moment and hold onto a heart as we all know...

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 20, 2018:

Paula - He's a one in a million, alright!

Suzie from Carson City on June 20, 2018:

Apparently he sense he's headed for stardom. Don't fight it, Flourish. Just give him what he demands!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 20, 2018:

Paula - I have a deaf and low vision cat who plays "tennis" like nobody's business. He is obese and cannot see much else but amazingly, if you bounce that ping pong ball his way and he "hits" it back to you like a spry kitten. We've thought about videoing him but we have yet to work out his publication rights. He's demanding more food and a better space on my bed. We'll see where the negotiations head.

Suzie from Carson City on June 20, 2018:

LOL!! I knew you would love it. Personally, I was bowled over. All of my cats have owned me & I've actually been the one to do hand stands & somersaults to entertain THEM! No doubt you & average cat-lovers understand that scenario.

Your comment is hilarious...."number of hours it took the cats to train their humans......" Love it.

At least your cat answers you. Mine gives me looks of disgust as she walks past me.....like, "I hope you're not talking to me because I'm not listening."

I've seen circus lions perform, but domestic cats is a first for me! Now I'm searching for more videos of trained felines!

Glad you enjoyed this. Paula

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 20, 2018:

Paula - That was FABULOUS! I loved it so much. I can't imagine the number of hours that it took the cats to train their humans to give them the treats in order to allow them to showcase their talents like that. Splendid. My cats, however, have told me there's no chance.

Suzie from Carson City on June 16, 2018:

Flourish.....From one cat lover to another...absolutely had to send this to you! Check it out and tell me what you think!! I love it! Paula..

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on May 18, 2017:

Hello again, I thought of an idiom I heard once, 'busy as a cat trying to cover up poo with feathers on a windy day' have a blessed day.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 18, 2017:

GalaxyRat - When the time is right, I hope one blesses your life. Black cats especially need love. They are often the "leftovers" in shelters simply because of their color and people's superstitions. Thank you for reading.

GalaxyRat on May 18, 2017:

I love this list, thanks Flourish! I don't have cats, but I wouldn't mind getting some!

'Super Freak' has always been a favourite for me...now I know why. Great idea for a hub and made me smile

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on March 06, 2016:

Peggy W - Thank you for sharing. Some of my favorite souls have four feet and purr loudly. Bless sweet Dusty (RIP) and Peaches and those who rescue.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 06, 2016:

You shared some good information in this hub along with the cute photos and of course the songs. Another one to pin and share! Will also give it a tweet. Dusty (now departed) and Peaches were both rescues. In fact all of my parent's cats I believe were also rescues. We wear our cat hair proudly. Ha!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 08, 2015:

DzyMsLizzy - Thank you for your helpful, excellent comment. Have a wonderful weekend, from one cat lady to another. Meow.

Liz Elias from Oakley, CA on August 07, 2015:

What a great bunch of song choices. I have always been partial to "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." It's one of the "oldies" from my growing up years.

Your list of cat expressions is great, as well (though you've duplicated #6 with #9.) I've heard that expression as "Nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs." Some cats don't have much of a tail, (American Bobtail, for example) or none at all (Manx). They'd probably be safe in the presence of rocking chairs. LOL

What a lot of work you had to do to come up with all those great videos. Bookmarked to watch them all now and then at leisure.

Voted up, funny, and interesting.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 29, 2015:

Mona - Thanks so much for stopping by! Cats really have a special place in my heart. Two are at my keyboard right now! Have a wonderful week!

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez from Philippines on July 28, 2015:

After your dog list, I really was interested in seeing what you would come up with cats. Very nice! You have a deep understanding of these mysterious felines (although I would really rather that the lion sleep at night).

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 26, 2015:

Victoria - I've never met (or seen) a cat I didn't like. Looks like I have good company in you. Thanks for stopping by!

Carolyn Emerick on June 20, 2015:

Hi Flourish! As always you were imaginative as you provided a well written article filled with humor. As a cat lady myself, I really enjoyed this and I am going to share it with my cat lady relatives right now :-)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on June 19, 2015:

"... often above people ..." Lol! ... People should learn to purr and say "ngyaeow!" Then, hopefully they would qualify to compete with cats!!!

Cheers!

This is another fun and interesting hub, Flourish. I love the cat photos!

Snakesmum on May 24, 2015:

Didn't listen to all the songs, but loved your photos of the cats. Beautiful creatures. I'd have more than one, but my girl doesn't like her own kind. :-)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 24, 2015:

Shyron - That video about hugging cats was hilarious. You know, I'm giving it a good try as far as hugging as many cats as I can. Rolling around with them is fun, too. So funny! Thanks for the laugh! Take care of that black neighbor kitty. He would buy you Zyrtec if he could. Have a great holiday weekend and thanks for stopping by and for sharing!

Flourish, I love your frisky feline featured songs, but Celine Dion has a has a female Labrador called Charlie. I have allergies and cannot have a cat, we do have a visiting one that belongs to a neighbor that comes around at 9 pm every night. He is big and solid black and he is so handsome. I worry about him on Halloween and when I hear the coyote howl.

Very interesting voted that way ++++ and shared.

Blessings and have a purr rrrfect Memorial day.

Bill - Four cats is a very healthy start! Meow to your son!

catfish33 - Let's hear it for the cat crazies! Meow!

John - Anyone with four cats has a good start in my book! Thanks for voting and stopping by!

Jeffrey Yelton from Maryland on May 21, 2015:

Love this hub! I'm sharing it with my facebook cat crazies.

Bill De Giulio from Massachusetts on May 21, 2015:

Hi Flourish. Another great play list. We don't have a cat at the moment, just our 13 year old shih tzu. But, our son has 4 cats so we get our fill when visiting. They are all so different with very distinct personalities. Great list and photos.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on May 21, 2015:

A great collection of songs dedicated to our furry feline friends Flourish....say that 5 times fast :) Halfway through I was going to say you missed out "year of the Cat" and "cat's in the Cradle" but then you covered them under "Even More Songs Dedicated to Cat Lovers." One other saying is "Not enough room to swing a cat" for a tiny room etc. not that's very nice and I wouldn't try to swing any of my four cats anyway. Great hub, good collection of songs too. Voted up.

Audrey - Thank you! Have a great day! Meow to you!

Audrey Howitt from California on May 21, 2015:

Love, love your sense of humor!

Nadine May - I'm glad you enjoyed this. Thank you for reading and taking a look.

Nadine May from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on May 21, 2015:

What a great post and I loved all the photos and verses. We have an adorable Siamese and she does all the things you see in the pictures.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 20, 2015:

catfish33 - Glad you enjoyed the pictures at least. Thanks for commenting and sharing. Have a great week.

Jeffrey Yelton from Maryland on May 19, 2015:

Love it! I don't like all the music but I love the cat pix! I'm gonna share this with all my cat-loving friends!

cat on a soapbox - Stella is more intelligent and feeling than many humans I have known. I am so glad you enjoyed my offbeat sense of humor. Have a purrfectly lovely rest of your week.

Catherine Tally from Los Angeles on May 19, 2015:

OMG! You made my day with this fabulous and funny hub:) I can tell that many a cat is lucky to have you in its life. I have to say that Stella just won my heart- what a cutie! The picture of the fat cats having a board meeting is priceless- "Man Eater" - haha. I'm STILL smiling! Thanks for the treat!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Linda - I love them as much as I do most people if you know what I mean. They sure don't pretend; you know what you're getting even if it's difficult. Cats can turn even the hardest of hearts. I've seen it before. People who say they don't like cats just haven't met one determined enough to change their mind.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Larry - A dog playlist is in the future! Thanks for taking a gander at this cat hub.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

MsDora - They have told me secrets no one else knows, and I, them. We have a certain connection. And I find that as long as someone values cats, I can find something good about them no matter how different they are from me. Thanks for stopping by my cat hub. I'm going to give cats a rest and turn to other subjects after this!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Peg - I love that song! Sad but one of my favorites. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Linda Lum from Washington State, USA on May 19, 2015:

I absolutely LOVED this. I think purr-haps you and I are twins separated at birth. Love the photos, love the songs you selected. (And who knew that Bill is a closet cat-lover??!!) Voted up!

Larry Rankin from Oklahoma on May 19, 2015:

As always, a lot of fun. I'm a dog person, but I love our cat as well.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on May 19, 2015:

Flourish, your understanding of cats and your ability to relate the lyrics, make this article a cut above the rest, in my opinion. I really like it.

Peg Cole from Northeast of Dallas, Texas on May 19, 2015:

Cats are cool. These songs are too!

I want to sing them in Kathmandu.

Love the Super Freaky photos and the way you tied in the celebs with the songs. One of my favorites is Cat Stevens.

I didn't see "Cats in the Cradle", Harry Chapin, also a favorite.

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on May 19, 2015:

I think I'd like that bless you

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Frank - Thanks for stopping by. Maybe I'll do a dog playlist just for you.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Tillsontitan - Pebbles worked her magic! Thanks for reading, commenting, and voting.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Patricia - Definitely been there. I currently have a "retirement home" for unadoptables who are living out there golden years. Of course, a couple neighborhood strays whose owners had abandoned them volunteered to keep them company. We try to neuter the world. Thanks for the share, comment, and up vote. Have a wonderful week.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Sha - Meow to you, my friend, from one cat lady to another.

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on May 19, 2015:

Awesome hub...love love the felines....I have several who adopted me and I am head over heels. Have had many many at once thanks to a daughter who worked for a vet....

Cats are music for our souls. What fun this was to read. Shared and voted up++++

Angels are on the way this morning ps

Mary Craig from New York on May 19, 2015:

What a great job Flourish! It must've taken you hours to round up all those songs and great pictures.

Like Bill, I was never a cat person but then my daughter left her Persian, Pebbles, with us and I was a goner. I loved that cat and she loved me. They do have a way of getting under your skin.

Voted up, useful, funny, and interesting.

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on May 19, 2015:

I always enjoy your playlists.. and this one is a Cat... LOl I am a dog person and never owned a cat.. but a pet lover is a pet lover and we are all the same... Great hub my friend

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on May 19, 2015:

As a cat person I can totally relate to this. Cat lovers are a special breed. Ha ha. Loved the songs. Your playlists are always so much fun!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Faith Reaper - Thank you for your kind thoughts and for voting, sharing. Those Georges know they are gorgeous. They just cannot help it. Mine was a walk up and we assume someone abandoned him, moved and left him behind. He settled in quickly. In the summer he gets shaved bald and looks hilarious, but in the heat he enjoys it. I get embarrassed for him, especially because it looks so funny around the back end.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Heidi - Thank you for stopping by and admiring George Clooney and Bay Bay. They always appreciate it.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 19, 2015:

Bill - She sure sounds like a keeper. It all starts with one! They have a way of convincing even the toughest of critics.

Faith Reaper from southern USA on May 18, 2015:

Hahaha ... oh my, Flourish, this one is beyond hilarious and cute too! Your George Cooney looks just like my George! He stays out all night some nights ...hmm, now he is busted LOL.

You have found the purr-fect videos too. That one about the future husband is too cool.

You have outdone yourself once again. What a way to end this hub with that last photo : )

Thank you for the laughs. I have always loved my cats ...and dogs.

Up awesome, funny and interesting, tweeting, pinning and sharing

Heidi Thorne from Chicago Area on May 18, 2015:

You already know I'm lobbying for cats as my "retirement" pets. So I'm a cat purr-son wannabe at this point. LOVE all the cat pics, but the ones of your kitty-kins are precious! Thanks for a fun start to the week!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on May 18, 2015:

Jeannie - Thank you! I've always had cats but would love to have a mild mannered cat-loving dog one day. Have a great week!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on May 18, 2015:

I'll be honest, I have never been a cat person. I love animals but man alive, they can sure be obstinate and finicky. Having said that, Bev came home with a tabby last year, and wouldn't you know it, I fell in love with the damned thing. She drapes herself on my shoulder at night and purrs so sweetly. Of course, I know she just loves me because I feed her but still, it is too sweet to ignore. LOL

Jeannie Marie from Baltimore, MD on May 18, 2015:

What adorable cat photos! I have a dog right now, but I do love cats as well. These are some great cat songs that are sure to please cats and cat owners.
