And Now, To Lighten the Mood, Here’s Pictures of Cats, Set to “Walking On Sunshine”

Because I said to myself: “After the last couple of days, ‘Walking on Sunshine’ would be nice for everyone to hear. Especially if pictures of cats were involved! I wonder if YouTube will provide?”

And yes. YouTube did provide.

Oh, YouTube. You never fail, when cats are concerned.

  1. Thank you, John!

    I was PARTICULARLY inspired by the several-times repeated pic of Ceiling Cat and Basement Cat stepping out together in apparently perfect sync.

    A deep metaphysical/metaphorical commentary for us to ponder…

  2. Thanks for the catchy earworm and restock of cuteness to counteract the gloom of some corners of reality. For people who need a little more cheering, how about “Everything is Awesome” from the Lego Movie (by Tegan and Sara):
    (Sorry if my formatting doesn’t work for that link…haven’t tried sharing a link here before.)

  3. @tariqata: User the force, Luke. Living well is the best revenge…hug a recruiter today! (says one who dealt with a wilfully ignorant boss by rage-quitting, but only because there was, actually, an offer on the table).

  4. Thank you John. This is exactly what I needed after yesterday. My brother has been living with my father and I since last Sept. when he tried to take his own life. He had been living a transgendered life for more than a decade. When he moved in, my father was still firm in his denial of everything about his old existence. And refused to allow Nicole at all.
    I didn’t give a crap. I was happy to have a sister who was alive then a dead brother.
    Well yesterday Paul died from heart failure after a stent was put in to a blocked carotid artery.
    Paul loved cats. Thank you.
    I love you Paul Boozer
    And I love you Nicole Louise Boozer.

  5. Last year, I was talking to a trauma counselor — about pets, not trauma, we were sharing Funny Pet Stories — who said that in fact, YouTube videos of (your favorite critter) are a useful tool in dealing with stress. Obviously, it’s bad if you retreat into only that, but as a short-term calming measure, they’re pretty darn good, and available 24/7 for free.

  6. @Susan Tait: Thanks for the words of encouragement! The thought of how much more fun the rage-quit is going to be if I can sweetly say that I’ve been offered a better job (or at least one with rational management) definitely helps keep me going. Along with the cats.

    @Mark Boozer: I’m sorry for the loss of your sister, but speaking as another person who is happy to have a living sister for whom the road to acceptance has been and still is rocky, I’m glad that yours had someone who did accept her.
