This leaves me wondering what the left-out verb is in that reply.

I would "love" for anyone to hear me singing to the kitties?
I would "laugh my ass off" for anyone to hear me singing to the kitties?
I would "die of mortification"?

I hate it when I do that...

about nonsense songs..."

I know exactly what you mean. Someone could have an opportunity for
extortion if they had a tape of me singing my made-up songs to my cats.
Particularly if it was a video tape.

Then again, considering that I've posted here about these songs in detail,
including lyrics, tunes, and description of the little dances that I often
do with them, perhaps not. (I do the dances in order to elicit airplane
ears from Licky.)

Last night we were watching "University Challenge" and one of the teams was
from Durham, which set me to recalling that ghastly old joke "How do you know
the Pink Panther comes from Durham?"

(If you've heard the theme to the "Pink Panther" films then you'll get it-
otherwise don't bother)

Next thing I'm singing "Dun-zee, Dun-zee, Dun-zee, " to the same tune

Panther thing. O----T O---T O---T. Pig gie, Pig gie, Pig gie! Willow

probably stay with me all day!!!.

OMG Pearl HATES it when I sing. And I'm a trained, good singer! She
doesn't like any music though. How did I end up with this cat???
