First enjoy this video:
So! Now that you’ve met a rapping robot cat named Gato from the anime version of the SNES game Chronotrigger, we can proceed.
This is a novel, presumably written for adults, by the British poet May Sarton in 1957. It’s about a Gentleman Cat who begrudgingly gets named Tom Jones, because he is a foundling, who after two years on his own announces to the world that he may be kept, by a suitable caretaker.
That caretaker is presumably May Sarton. The book then follows his adventures and misadventures, and includes many of the songs he sings to whoever will hear him out.
This seems like it will quite likely be a hit with the crowd here — as a fellow cat owner, I perceive many of you to be cat owners and as we all sing to our cats and our cats sing to us, you should likely enjoy this one.
It absolutely exudes charm and knowledge and love, and I promise you will love it.
In fact, I only learned about its very existence this morning and went out to the public library in order to grab it, and I was not disappointed.
Here’s the name of a chapter from the book:
So there you go.
Oh, would you like to know one of his song?
“Thank you, thank you,
You and no other
Dear gentle voice,
Dear human mother,
For your delicate air,
For you savoir-faire
For your kind soft touch
Thank you very much.”
