Ever since we got Gershwin 10 years ago, we've had this jazzy little number for him, since he's allllll about lurking at windows and spying on people:

Detective kitty!
Keepin' the streets safe
Detective kitty!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Not the greatest song, but he gets quite chuffed when we sing it.

A song I sang to jdfunks about our cats:
Jess never scoops-the-poop. Jess never scoops-the-poop. Why don't you EVER scoop the poop?
Then Jess yells from the other room: She's. not. my. cat.

And "Zelda Scone, Zelda Scone, Zeld Zeld Zelda Scone. She's white and brown with a little bit of black and when she doesn't wanna be pet she turns her back. She's small and witty, she's a very pretty kitty, she's Zelda Marie Scone."

I wish I could convey tone here.

I sing Hux "Whatever You Like" by TI.

Huxley you the hottest. Love the way you drop it. Purr so good coulda sworn you went to college. Hundred K deposits. Vacations in the tropics. ... The rest of the song is the actual song with no cat fill in words. Mostly I just tell Huxley I like the way he drops it (aka dances, not poops.)

jlegume, that's so forking cute.

When you pet Gershwin enough, he starts happily flopping all over the place, which we call the tootsie roll. So when he starts that, we start singing that song by the 69 Boyz.

Yeah, tootsie roll
Let me see that tootsie roll
Get up and roll just make that tootsie oooooooooohhhhh

My friend Kim is amazing at this. Think of any song you've ever heard on the Muzak at Whole Foods, and she's turned it into a song about one of her 4 cats.

I was just brushing my kitties teeth and when it came time to brush Thurston's I went to pick him up and began singing "He ain't heavy, he's my Thursty..." to the tune of He Ain't Heavy He's My Bruddah because Thurston weighs 20+ lbs.

Ooh, I remembered some more. (I should mention that while our kitty is officially named "Mrs. Fuzzbutt Heidegger" we usually just call her "kitty" or "poes".)

To the tune of I Kissed a Girl:

I kissed a kitteh and I liked it
The smell of her fur was fantastic
She was so cute, she was so nice
So I kissed her twice!


Then there's the feline version of Barbie Girl:

She's a kitty girl
In her kitty world
She so cu-ute
In her little fur suit!


And sometimes when she's got a bug up her butt and is running around like a wild kitty bouncing off the furniture, we start singing "Pinball kitty". It's not very exciting though, because we haven't worked out lyrics beyond "She's a pinball kitty...."

If I am home alone with our cat Mindl I will sometimes sing tunes I learned in church as a kid/teenager, with or without changed lyrics. My partner hates it, so I don't do it when he's around. One of my favorites is 'Don't eat animals, take your B12' sung very loudly on the tune of 'Read your bible, pray every day' I make up all kinds of weird variations. When I do that the cat looks at me like I'm out of my mind. I guess she's right.

we fit the phrase "chicken breast" into every song possible. the dog has a spot on his .... brisket? not sure what to call it? the lowest point of his rib cage, where when you touch it even gently, he immediately changes his demeanor. casts his eyes down, tail down, etc. when we discovered this for some reason we started calling the dog "chicken breast". none of this makes any sense but it would seem to fit right in with the other classics here!

I'm so pleased to find out I'm not the only one who sings to my pets. I thought that was confessional-type material, but I'm glad we're ownin' it.

Maddy is a rescue (Aussie shepard) and she was really standoffish for a long while. So, we thought that her edge was because she was from (start song here) "from the streets from the streets!" That's pretty much the whole song, sung over and over in a punk staccato style.

There are many more - I have to think of the more involved ones.

Awww I love this thread! I sing to my dog all the time. My husband made up a rap song about him entitled "Pillows and Poop" because when we first adopted him his favorite activities seemed to be stealing cat poop out of the litter box and tearing apart our pillows.

My husband sings Dean Martin's Volare using their names (Oh, Mad-dy or Oh, Zo-ey, Cantare, oh oh oh oh). He'd not be pleased knowing I put that tidbit out on the interwebz.

And there's Chesters and Chesters,
And business Chesterers,
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

Soft puppy,
Warm puppy,
Little ball of fur.
Happy puppy,
Sleepy puppy,
Purr, purr, purr.

For my boyfriend's cat Marie she gets the whole opening number of Beauty and the Beast starting with "MARIE! THE BAGUETTES! HURRY UP!" as well as
Cat City, bisque
Cat Cat City bisque
Ten ten ten twenties and fifties on them kitties, bisque

We're not very progressive.
