Longtime fans of CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory know all about “Soft Kitty” — a sweet little ditty Sheldon urges Penny to sing to him when he’s sick, just like his mom used to do.
Soft kitty, warm kitty
Little ball of fur
Happy kitty, sleepy kitty
Purr purr purr
The tune was an immediate sensation when it first appeared on the show in 2008, inspiring recurring appearances and an ever-growing line of merch, which will help get you get psyched for the show’s sixth season premiere on September 27.
What began as a simple line of T-shirts has morphed into a clothing collection. Recent additions include a dapper sweater, Soft Kitty Snuggler Blanket, and my purrsonal favorite, a hoodie that comes with ears, paw covers, and even a little tail!
Even if you don’t watch The Big Bang Theory, it’s hard not to be charmed by the tale of Soft Kitty. Who doesn’t agree that a warm, purring cat is the best cure of all, no matter what ails you?
