The Baboo Kitty Has Spoken

Cat of the Day-a tribute to my Catster friends!

There was once a sweet boycat with orange stripped fur
He loved to play and to eat and to sleep and to purr
He liked the girlcats of every hue,
Those spotted and striped and those white black and blue
He liked sweet calicos, he liked siamese
He liked them all and he liked to tease

Orange Ruffy's my name I was named for a fish
From Daddy's Gulf Coast where it's served in a dish
I once was so skinny I had a big head
But now I'm a big cat who always gets fed
And I have the nicest disposition I'm told
I'm a dark mango color and so soft to hold

Ah but those girlcats, who get me right here
With their little whiskers and sweet eyes so clear
There's my Kaci Sunshine who makes my heart sing,
There's my little Ingen who makes my heart zing!
There's a little girl cat who's pure royalty,
Theres some innocent little furs who are so cute and so free!

And you know that I'm honored, by your attention its true
I never knew I was special til I met you
For a ginger ruffy cat that I am
Mommy said once I was just a ham
But I don't know about that, I like adventere it's true
and for my friends I'd do anything for you

So as I sit here, cat of the day
I'm moved by this honor, thats all I can say
And share it with every kit in from the cold
Because we just get better
We never get old.

So wistfully I gaze out into what must be Catster Haze
To celebrate with all of you cool nights and warm days
To welcome new additions, watch wings over Rainbow Bridge
As I wave to Boxie Brown, Hazel Lucy on that Ridge
And be just in the moment, welcoming you all

Here come the Trouttown tabbies to join me in Last Call!

So thanks for all the honor, thanks for all the love
Thanks for being the best of friends
Right here and up above
As I look back at the shadow of a skinny orange cat
Who meows to me in memory
Saying How bout that!
Cause in us all is greatness, in every shabby stray
All we ever needed was love
To be Cat of the Day
