    I always LOVED the idea of a Collector's Item. Something limited edition. Extra cool. That's one reason I set aside about 20 copies of Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers 16 years ago. So that some day in the future I could sell them and call them a "Collector's Item".

    Here we are and my crappy memory wasn't even sure that's what these were. So I did a double check. Were these first or second edition CDs? How do I know?

    After the first printing of 1000 CDs, I changed the copyright.

    The original copyright was in 2005 on the Jewel Case CDs. The following year, I printed the next edition and changed the copyright to 2006.

    But if you're unsure, there's one other thing I did with the 2005 release that I did not do in the 2006 release. The first edition CD also includes the original version of "Harry Potter and the Rising of the Moon".

    I didn't include it, or even list it on the CD, because I was unsure about what the Rowling Estate would think about that. I tried to reach out to them. I never heard back.

    A couple years later, I learned about the Wizard Rock movement. So I released the song officially on Whiskers in the Jar.

    Interestingly, when I printed the CD Jackets, I changed the copyright back to 2005. But I don't remember what edition those CDs were.

    All that to say, I am very pleased to sell the last copies of my 1st Edition of Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers.

    You can now own one of the final 20 copies of the CD. I'll even autograph it on request.

My tabby cats are indoor kitties. This means every week or so I have to pin my tabbys down to clip their nails, because I am not about to have them declawed. You try cutting off one of your fingers to the first knuckle and you’ll know what I mean.

Fortunately, my boys aren’t nearly as bad as this little angel who shows her love… by using those unclipped claws to shred every bit o’furniture in the house in this latest addition to my future Irish Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers CD. Based on the Irish song, “I’ll Tell My Ma (When I Come Home).” This parody could also be called “The Pussywhipped Song.”


I'll tell my cat when I come home,
“Leave the furniture alone.”
She tore my sheets and shred my couch.
I'm tired of coming home a grouch.

But she is loving. She is pretty.
And I am so whipped by my kitty.
Her claws catch my sleeve, rips 1, 2, 3
Please won't you leave the curtains be.

I tell her each morning that I love her.
But my shoes need laces so please don't chew 'em.
She mews real sweet then knocks over a candle
Now she's gnawing on my sandles.

Out of the bathroom she struts quite bold,
A roll of toilet paper clung to her toe.
I really wonder if I will kill her
When her mouth has feathers from my pillow.

Let the thunder storms crash all night long
She'll be too scared to rend my thong.
She may be shivering from fright,
But at least this weekend I'll have my tights.

I bought her a scratch post of her own.
So she'll leave my living room alone.
But I come home to see only fluff and filling
If she hadn't just meowed, there'd be a killin'.

–last chorus–
She is loving. She is pretty.
And I am so whipped by my kitty.
Her claws catch my sleeve, rips 1, 2, 3
I never liked those curtains anyway.
