Apparently, the only songs I know about cats were written while I was in high school. Not that this is a bad thing, I’m just starting to feel a little dated on my musical knowledge.
Today’s song comes from The Karl Hendricks Trio, an indie band out of Pittsburgh. Written in 1993, How’s the Cat? is the final track on their Some Girls Like Cigarettes album. Unfortunately I couldn’t find either a video or a link to the song anywhere on the internet. I did, however, upload the track myself so you can grab an MP3 of it here. You can also go listen to the whole album on Spotify here.
How’s the cat?
I haven’t seen her in awhile, and it makes me sad
‘Cause I always used to smile
When I saw her walking across the floor to me
Stumbling on those little kitty feet
Do you still get mad, when she fucks up all your stuff?
Well, that’s too bad
That cat was never good for much
But I sure could use her with me right now
A little warmth might really help me out.
And I’m not gonna ask about you
‘Cause I can tell that you’re getting kinda bored
And I’m not gonna ask about all that other stuff
Guess it doesn’t really matter anymore
So…how’s the cat?
Would she remember who I am? Well, that’s too bad.
Cats sure are fickle friends
But I remember when she was walking across the floor to me
Stumbling on those little kitty feet.
