Ear Worms! Curious Cat Wants to Know. . .

Posted on May 5, 2010 by Lisa Ricard Claro   8 Comments | Posted in bailey · cat · curious · ear worms · scratch
Good day.

I am Bailey, Tabitha’s sister.  I am not a member of SCRATCH (Smart Cats Rebel Against Totally Crazy Humans) and I do not covet world domination. I am a house cat, and an exceptional specimen of feline intelligence.  It is not lack of ability that causes me to eschew aspirations of world domination.  Rather, it seems to me that world domination requires much work and diabolical thinking.  This would interfere with my naps, and we can’t have that.

Since Tabby is otherwise occupied, having claimed a spot in front of the kitchen pantry–the prime location for scoring kitty treats–I thought I’d give this curious cat thing a try.  I am a cat, I am curious, and as it happens there is something I’ve been itching to know:
My pet complains of ear worms which are not, as you might suppose, either playthings or snacks.  An ear worm is a song  or jingle that plays in one’s head without respite, often a tune of an aggravating nature. My pet once complained of the Meow Mix song keeping her up all night. I find it rather soothing, myself, but she deemed it an assault on her sanity.  What is the worst ear worm with which you have suffered?
Thank you very much for your attention. It has been lovely.  Really.

    Ewww…when I first read the words "ear worm"…a song or tune did not enter my mind! I guess that's a phrase I've never heard before! Is that something just the humans in The South suffer from?? Gosh….I think I'll have to ponder this and come back later!!

    MeOw Bailey, I haven't decided if I'm a member of the SCRATCH club or not. But I can tell you my most annoying ear worm was that Who Let the Dogs Out. We felines might be wise in creating an ear worm for dogs, maybe something like, Let the Cats In! Thanks for filling in for Tabitha.MeOwOwOwSmeagol

    Becky – Greetings! I look forward to learning about your ear worms. And I wouldn't say that to just anyone. ^^Smeagol – Tabby has meowed your praises! I agree with your choice for worst ear worm, and your Who Let the Cats In idea is brilliant. I can't wait to tell Tabby. And thank you for commenting on my fur. It is just as soft as it looks. ^^Meow -Bailey

    Hubby has the radio tuned to the oldies, so when I get in his car, the first song I hear gets stuck in my ear groove and is there all day worming around. Bailey is gorgeous.

    Linda – Thank you for the compliment! My pets take my feline pulchritude for granted and do not comment on it as often as I would like. My pet listens to the oldies, too. She likes Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, and I admit they qualify as cool cats.Thank you for visiting!Meow -Bailey

    Smelly Cat. Hmmm, truly an anomaly. Catchy tune, though. I told my pet of your response and she said, "Holy cow! Why did you tell me that? I'll have that goofy song stuck in my head all day!" I think it to be rather apropos. ^^Meow -Bailey
