Kingston has been a part of my household for a long time, so it isn't too surprising that there's a song about him.

Kingston

It all came about when he got a case of the fleas.

After months of combing him a couple times a day with the proverbial fine tooth comb it got to the point he was expecting it. He'd jump up on the hamper when I told him to "get on the box!" and he always looked so proud up there that he seemed like one of those fancy cats in a cat show.

I've been singing the showcat song to him for years now as we go through the routine. (oh, the fleas are gone, of course, he just likes being combed) Vic started singing along after witnessing the event every time she was over, so it was decided that we should share it with the world!

That's Victoria Mowrer on percussions and backing vocals- Thanks, Vic!

Show Cat

Showcat, sleek and sassy- Showcat, lookin classy
Hes got a long tail. Hes got a long tail.
Showcat, perky little ears- Showcat, hes got no peers
Hes got a long tail. Hes got a long tail.

Hes got four little paws on the ends of his legs
Hes got long grey whiskers- And he never ever eats eggs

Showcat, grey and stripy, Showcat, never gripey
Hes got a long tail!

(verse break- Showcat. Showcat. Hes got a long tail. Hes got a long tail.)

Hes got two pointy ears on the top of his head
Hes got big green eyes, no theyre never ever ever red

Showcat, covered in fur- Showcat, listen to him purr
Hes got a long tail!

Showcat, when hes out prowlin- Showcat, hear him yowlin
Hes got a long tail. Hes got a long tail.
Showcat, perky little ears- Showcat, hes got no peers
Hes got a long tail. Hes got a long tail.

Hes got four little paws on the ends of his legs
Hes got long grey whiskers- And he never ever eats eggs

Showcat, fat and sassy- Showcat, lookin classy!
Hes got a loooooong tail- SHOWCAT!
