Cats, cats, cats

Well, this is actually quite sad. The CfMRF... family has been stricken with the loss of one of its own; Spencer's cat, Pepper, passed away a few days ago.

What a gorgeous cat.
RIP Pepper, 2001-2007.

The rest of the CfMRF... family sends its love and condolences to Spencer, Dina and Harry.

In other feline-related news, Corinna and I welcomed two kittens to our house: Butter Pecan Caramel Swirl and Fantoma. I would post a photo, but my phone is a piece of crap and we don't have a digital camera.

So here's a clowder of cat-related songs, in memory of Pepper, and in dedication to Harry, Butter Pecan Caramel Swirl, Fantoma, Hunter, Hazmangs and all the other pets in the CfMRF... pantheon:

Wild Cats of Kilkenny - The Pogues, from 'Rum, Sodomy & The Lash'.
Clyde - The Twilight Singers, from the album 'twilight'. 'Clyde' is Greg Dulli's cat, a photo of whom can be found on the inside sleeve of the album 'Blackberry Belle', which I recommend highly.
Wildcattin' - Belittle League, from 'Oh, I Fell Down'. This track uses a sample of Owen Wilson in 'The Royal Tenenbaums'. Belittle League's Myspace: here.
Cat Man - Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps, this version taken from 'Original Seeds, Vol. 1', which is a collection of tracks that influenced Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds over the years. It's well worth having a listen.
Catwoman - Shakespear's Sister, from 'Hormonally Yours'. If there's a Cat Man, there has to be a Cat Woman, right?
High School Hellcats - James Intveld, from the soundtrack to 'Cry-Baby'.

Oh yeah, and Merry Xmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, End Of Year or whatever takes your fancy. And I guess I should tie that in with a Lolcat, huh?
