Bull, Dan - Stroking A Cat Lyrics

This is not a subject many are approaching in rap
Among the showboating and boasts, I know I'm so full of crap
But I won't be complete without penning an ode to the fact
That I feel most at home stroking a cat
I feel his paws on my shoulder so I turn and I'm poking him back
He kneads my knees and I know he's cozy
The chap's hoping to doze in my lap
It's fairly safe to say I'm open to that
Because I'm most at home stroking a cat

I'm stroking a cat
See him doze in my lap
There's few feelings closer than that
I'm at home when I'm stroking a cat

Behind the ears, now under the chin
Tickle the tummy, and feel the fluff on your skin

I had a cold heart, but that frost was going to melt
Because your fine fluffy fur was the softest thing I've felt
Put me in contact with my lost and inner self
But gosh, your droppings are the most obnoxious thing I've smelt
If Jay Z had a baby with a crazy cat lady
Their DNA would mutate to make me
It may be crazy that I cradle cats in place of babies
But you wouldn't make me change my behaviour if you paid me
Maybe it's love, perhaps it's toxoplasmosis
Honestly, I'm kind of shocked that I wrote this
I'm too far gone, I'm lost and I'm hopeless
Put a poster on the lamp post for me, and hope someone will notice

I'm stroking a cat
See him doze in my lap
There's few feelings closer than that
I'm at home when I'm stroking a cat

Behind the ears, now under the chin
Tickle the tummy, and feel the fluff on your skin

I try not to treat you anthropormorphically
But damn, if you could talk to me
That'd be awesome, see
I need to reassure you that I'll always be here for you
Though we are mere mortal beings
I would run a mile for every single minute that I fear for you
I'm no loyalist but to me you are the real royal
Developed and bred up as a vicious predator
I found it tricky to picture, 'til you ripped that stick of feathers up
You're like a teddy bear, but sentient with agency
That's why I savour the sentiment you'd deign to play with me
The wide world is dangerous; home's a haven, sweet
And if you need love enough, I'm sure we have a vacancy

I'm stroking a cat
See him doze in my lap
There's few feelings closer than that
I'm at home when I'm stroking a cat

Behind the ears, now under the chin
Tickle the tummy, and feel the fluff on your skin

Aside from mewling, I'll never get to hear you speak
But we communicate in other ways, enough to know you're unique
The pet sanctuary was a feline Who's Who
Perusing kittens like I was trying on a new shoe
I wonder what the factor was that made me choose you
Don't know, perhaps you chose me, and I just knew too
You had a true cuteness I never grew used to
It rips my heart apart knowing that soon I'll lose you

I don't want to lose you
I love you

    "I don't want to lose you" hit so close to home. I lost my buddy Felix a couple of months ago.

  2. becca starr

  6. Troltergeist


  7. Angry Space Marine

    Dan, this song made me cry. Made me think of my first cat. Haven’t thought about him in years. But then that reminded me of my mother who loved that cat with all her heart and the time I wasted instead of being with her. Thank you for this even though you kind of made it as a joke.

  8. Anne Niza

    I love this cat rap,i love it.

  14. Anders ᛖᛚᛁᚨᛋᛖᚾ

    I had to relocate my old cat Figaro because i was moving to the big city in a apartment. I wanted him to be able to run outside and catch mice so I got him back to the farm he came from. but the day after i visited him a car drove him over. I cant stop blaming myself because i promised him to always be there and i feel like i took the wrong decision. But forever in my heart

  15. greentea su

    Wow is this cat rap it can kill me ohh!!!!

  16. Ninja chickens YT

    My cat is called "Flekken" (its Spot in norwegain) its called that cause of its spot on back, FORTUNATELY he moved to my grandfather, its fortunate cause he lives all alone now...

  17. GeekJokes

    I lost my cat 2 weeks ago, this is the first time im listening to this since
    I'd sing this to her almost everyday


    I still cry to this song


    And to keep tradition, i cried again


    And once more
    Its not everytime that i end up crying, just...when i refrain myself for a couple of months

  18. wes h

  55. A Nerd's Guide to Fiction

    I which my cats loved me as much as they seem to love you.
    Great rap by the way.

  56. James Bennett

    I'm watching this while all 3 of my cats are cuddling with me. Wolfie, Batfink, and Pedro Megatron.

    Don't know what i'd do without the damnably expensive poop-machines. Love them to bits.

    I wrote a cat rap: https://youtu.be/hANb4qL6zuE

  58. Rahil Shaikh

    175 people missed the like button, or they can't appreciate incredible music. WTF? How are people so blind that they miss the like button and hit the dislike one?

  59. Colin Newbury

    who is the crazy %#%*²*$(%)*)( that disliked this video. I mean I get it, there are dog people (my self included, but I love my cat stitch, and my dog Isabel(she died after this video came out, my current dog is Roxanne)) but you just cant not love cats. even if you´re allergic(I am, but stitch is a hypo allergenic cat, so yeah).the rest of my pets are rocky(cat, really old), lilo(cat) and nani(kitten), and a turtle(we can think of a good name after 3 years of having him, any suggestions?)

  60. OneCup

    1:02 In sync

  61. William Wallace

    I approve of your cats and this video. I miss Mouse... and all the other friends that have come and gone over the years. Often you catch flak for caring so much about a "pet" but... friend is a friend, 4 legs, 2 legs, or none... doesn't matter. :)

  62. Frost Quake

    This song brought a tear to my eye. Part of me says "this is sappy as hell," but I've always felt this way about my kitties, too.

  63. Stim

    this is odd

  64. Idk

    ;-; plz don’t tell me he’s dead

  65. HeyItsSam

    Oof... this got me right in the feels

  66. Minias

    This brought tears to my eyes. Honestly. Beautiful. Made me think of my dogs, who are both getting up there in age. I love them so much. Very beautiful change from the silliness.

  67. eidod23

    replace cat with pussy in this song instant funny

  68. Ben2 B2

    Oh me...aww shucks...see I got two dogs...a red-brown old lady by the name Ille' Kai...and a black and white baby by the alias of MaHina....sigh...and I love them so much if I lost them I'd literally die... wheather it's from poisons or a bullet in my eye...I mean I know ill loose them in due time...but if in the now I can't keep them healthy and alive...i'd go to the roof and try to prove I can fly...

  69. omar robelli

  70. Swordsquire

    Suddenly I miss my old cat Twinkie...

  71. windows 97 ャ陰ぜ

    This is truly the cutest thing I've ever heard
