Steven's Feline Friday: Sing It Elvis :)


"Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it."

-Elvis Presley

Sometimes people ask me, why I named my cat Elvis. The above photos tells the whole story. He looked so much like the "King" himself when he was a little guy, and he still does. He even enjoys rock music. LOL. No kidding. One of our best laughs, came one day when we put a CD of Elvis on the player, and about half way through we noticed he was no longer playing with his siblings, he was standing in place, shaking his hips. LOL. I am not kidding, it was like Elvis Presley had just been reincarnated into the our new little kitten! Unfortunately, that is also when we realized that if that were true it meant that Elvis really was dead. Something I try real hard not to believe. LOL. This is Elvis the early years, but just so you know, my kitty is now over 30 pounds...so we also have Elvis the later years. Except my Elvis has 9 lives, and doesn't do catnip in his sandbox! LOL.

My friend Steven hosts a great little weekly meme, he calls, "Feline Friday." It's a lot of fun and a great way to show off your favorite feline. Pay a visit to his journal, "(sometimes) photoblog" for all the details.

And now a musical interlude...

A Little Less Conversation
By Elvis

A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite, and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby

Baby close your eyes and listen to the music
Drifting through a summer breeze
It's a groovy night and I can show you to use it
Come along with me an put your mind at ease

A little less conversation, a little less action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite, and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
satisfy me baby

Come on baby I'm tired of talking
grab your coat and let's start walking
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Don't procrastinate, don't articulate
Girl it's gettin late, gettin' upset waitin' around

A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me
A little more bite, a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby.
