Clipping Claws

I’ve learned from past experience that de-clawing cats often render them psychologically useless.

SawyerWhen I purchased my cat from the Humane Society, he was nearly a year old and I decided to let him keep his claws even though he’s purely a house cat. I clip his claws frequently and he seems to like it. He purrs. I clip. Not all cats are like Sawyer. I’m certain that as a stray kitten, he was raised by a dog. The result includes several dog traits like licking anything and everything, playing fetch, and barking (OK, I made that last one up). But he is very dog-like.

And loyal.

I think he knows I could have had him de-clawed, but chose not to and for that he likes me…for that and also because I feed him.

For my first post of 2008, here’s a tune from a Minneapolis group that continues to gain traction around the U.S. This is an excellent cover of Cyndi Lauper’s ’80s original. And, the vid is from a performance at 1st Ave.

Lyrics:

Lying in my bed
I hear the clock tick
And think of you
Caught up in circles
Confusion is nothing new

You say, go slow
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds

If you’’re lost
You can look
And you will find me
Time after time
If you fall
I will catch you
I’’ll be waiting
Time after time
Time after time
Time after time

Sometimes
You picture me
I’’m walking too far ahead
You’’re calling to me
I can’’t hear
Just what you’ve said

You say, go slow
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds

If you’’re lost
You can look
And you will find me
Time after time
If you fall
I will catch you
I’’ll be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades
And darkness has turned to gray
Watching through windows
You’’re wondering
If I’’m okay

You say, go slow
I fall behind
The drum beats out of time

If you’’re lost
You can look
And you will find me
Time after time
If you fall
I will catch you
I’’ll be waiting
If you’’re lost
You can look
And you will find me
Time after time
If you fall
I will catch you
I’’ll be waiting
Time after time
Time after time
