The Lyrics

Up this morning
Before the sun
Reheated some sausage, the 'wave set to stun
Jumped in the bathtub
In the water I sat
Meowing through the door was my nine-pound ca-a-a-at!

Curled by my side
Next to my back
I can't believe he's gotten so fat
Some like their puppies
Think that's where it's at
But I'm very happy with my nine pound ca-a-a-at.

The early morning he always gets me up
He starts pawing at my face
When you're talking 'bout my nine pound cat son
He always puts me in my place

Jumped in my Lumina
I hit high gear
I fire her up, leave the slowpokes in the rear
I fly on down that highway
Like a hell-escapin' bat
On my lap is my nine pound ca-a-a-at!

(instrumental interlude)

I know the perfect place
To take Spot for a walk
But when I put the leash on, he always balks
I take him home
I open the bag
It's dinner time, you nine pound ca-a-a-at!

That old sun is setting
The sky is clear
I open my window to let in some air
The shades start moving......
I hear a crash.....
My plants are a casualty of my nine pound ca-a-a-a-a-a-a-at!

That's a nine pound cat son...
Aw it's big as that old Garfield!

Hey, 9 lb (4 kg) isn't a bad size for a cat if she is Norwegian forest cat, Siberian, Maine Coon or Ragdoll. The largest Ragdoll I have seen is the size of a lynx - and her owner said she is still kitty and will grow...

SV -- True :) Actually Spot is about 10 1/2, and he's probably a Bombay cat, they're long and slender even when they weigh that much. -- MM
