You know you’re a cat lady when you do the following:
- Buy a catnip plant that you keep in your front yard — not just for your cat, but for all of the neighborhood kitties.
- You never feel fully dressed unless you have a handful of cat treats in your pocket or a can of gravy in your purse.
- You make up new song lyrics for your favorite tunes, replacing words with references to your cat.
El Hub and I will be cruising down the highway and a song will come on the radio, and suddenly we’ll start singing the Tabs version that suited his personality or what he was doing at a particular time in his professional life. Treasure by Bruno Mars is still one of my faves. I heard it this morning on my run. When Bruno sings, “Pretty girl, pretty girl, pretty girl, you should be smiling,” I hear “Pretty boy, pretty boy, pretty boy, pretty boy tabby!”
Sing it out loud. Trust me it works.
But THE BEST is Fleetwood Mac’s Little Lies.
Replace “tell me lies” with “tabby thighs,” so instead of “Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies,” we have, “Tabby thighs, touch his sweet tabby thighs.”
You’re welcome. 😊
Another favorite is I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys. This one is more of a straight-up ode.
Let me ask you this: Is Tabs your fire? Your one desire? Believe when I say, “Tabs wants it that way.”
Oops! I Did It Again by Britney Spears was an El Hub creation. “Oops! Tabs did it again. He played with my heart. Got lost in the crowd.”
I’m pretty sure those lyrics are completely wrong, but he still made it work. I just stood in the corner and did a slow clap. 👏
