Behind Caturday Blue Eyes

No one knows what it’s like

To be the bad cat

To be the sad cat

Behind blue eyes


But my dreams

They aren’t as empty

As my food bowl seems to be

Kittehs Lizzie and Kiwi submitted by Kay M. I’m sure you all can come up with even MORE lyrics


  1. Rag Dolls!

    Dey tho PWITTY!!!!


  3. No one knows what it’s like to be the bad cat
    To be the sad cat behind blue eyes.
    No one knows what it’s like to hunt for Mice
    and only catch some flies!

    But my dreams, they aren’t as empty
    As my cat bowl seems to be
    So I am hunting little Critters
    And my claws are grabbing what I see.

    No one knows what it’s like to be sleeping
    And dreaming of sitting on a log
    and no one knows what it’s like to be chased
    up a tree by that stupid dog!

    Oh no one knows what it’s like to be the bad cat
    always the sad cat behind blue eyes.

    I’m imagining the kitties meowing the entire song but in the voice of Roger Daltrey.
    Sometimes, CO is just, well, trippy.

  5. Paunchie says:

    when I looked in her eyes they were blue, but, nobody home…..


    kitteh on left!

  6. Starlinguk says:

    Ragdolls? The right one looks like a long-haired Siamese to me. Actually, both just look like long-haired cats to me …

  7. kibblenibble says:

    Or perhaps Himalayans….dunno. Georgeous, regardless.

  8. ha, great caption, meg!!! and unbelievably cute kitties staring into my soul

  9. I don’t know when I’ve been so blue
    Don’t know what’s come over you
    You’ve found someone new
    And don’t it make my brown eyes blue

    I’ll be fine when you’re gone
    I’ll just cry all night long
    Say it isn’t true
    And don’t it make my brown eyes blue

    Tell me no secrets, tell me some lies
    Give me no reasons, give me alibis
    Tell me you love me and don’t let me cry
    Say anything but don’t say goodbye

    I didn’t mean to treat you bad
    Didn’t know just what I had
    But honey now I do
    And don’t it make my brown eyes
    Don’t it make my brown eyes
    Don’t it make my brown eyes blue?

  10. LizzyCat says:

    My floofy cat’s name is Lizz[ie] too!

    Er… obviously 😉

    Those two are darlin’.

    What beautiful kitties and hypnotic baby blues!

  12. chanpon says:

    Yes, kitties, I shall obey and open the can of tuna for you right away…

    Beautiful and hypnotic!

  13. Rhapsody in blue;
    You could drown in either of those pairs of eyes,
    Pale and limpid, or azure blue; they have so much to say
    Their love is right out there on the line
    For you to keep or throw away
    The choice is yours: undying devotion is waiting…..

  14. Woojah Dotray!

  15. If I swallow anything furry
    don’t be alarmed it’s just my stoat.
    And when I’m cold, just give up your blanket,
    Time for Webbies? Give me your vote.

  16. biscuithead says:


    LOL! thanks for that!

    Blue eyes
    Lizzie’s got blue eyes
    Like a deep blue sea
    On a blue blue day
    Blue eyes
    Kiwi’s got blue eyes
    When the morning comes
    I’ll be far away
    And I say Blue eyes
    Opening up the tuna
    pouring out the kibble
    Lizzie’s got blue eyes
    And she’s alone again Blue eyes
    Kiwi’s got blue eyes
    Like a clear blue sky
    Watching over me
    Blue eyes
    I love blue eyes
    When I’m by her side
    Where I long to be
    I will see Blue eyes laughing in the sun
    Not so much in the rain
    Baby’s got blue eyes
    And I am home, and I am home again

    (Blue Eyes by Elton John, slightly altered by Lucy’s Mommeh)

  18. ChloesMom says:

    awww the one on the right looks like my blue point raggy, only with a cream chin. too adorabuhls.

  19. Katrina says:

    I am NOT sticking any fingers down anyone’s throat, period. Ouch. But I will let you make biscuits on my coat.

  20. Lerrinus says:

    Pritty kittys! My, what beautiful eyes you both have! 🙂

  21. DaytimeDeb says:

    No one knows what it’s like
    To be the house cat
    To be the indoor cat
    Behind blue eyes
    And no one knows
    What it’s like to be sitting in a window
    To be fated to chasing only catnip mice

    But my dreams they aren’t as empty
    As my boring life seems to be
    I have hours, only lonely
    My claws are vengeance
    You just wait and see

  22. DaytimeDeb says:

    PS the one on the right has colored contacts, it’s so obvious. LOL

  23. Yep those are ragdolls… cream bicolour & blue mitted. QTE! I ❤ my seal point raggy!

  24. Ragdoll, living in a movie
    Hot tramp, daddy’s little cutie
    So fine, they never see you leaving
    By the back door.

  25. LaFeeVerte says:

    Purdy cats!

    ( and for some reason I now have “Baba O’Riley” stuck in my head even though you’re referencing “Behind Blue Eyes” o_____O )

  26. No one knows what it’s liiiiiiiike…
    To be a floof-cat…
    Next to a poof cat…
    We gots blues eyes.

    First there’s mine, then she gots some more…
    I think it adds up to four,
    Cuz we each haz two —
    And we’re looking at YOU!

  27. oh no!!! feed kittehs!!! lol >_<

  28. puddlepeppers says:

    J. and lucy’s mommeh…thanks for the songs. my heart went with them.

  29. MadameX says:

    ¿Qué es poesía? preguntas
    Mientras clavas en mi tu mirada azul
    ¿Qué es poesía? ¿Y tu lo preguntas?
    Poesía… eres tu.

    With apologies to Gustavo Adolfo Becquer…

  30. AWW 🙂 What a pair of cuties 🙂 I would just LOVE to pick them both up and cuddle, cuddle cuddle 🙂

  31. …And if I purr
    Take a-way my catnip
    Before I twirl and act like a fool….

  32. berthaservant says:

    I don’t know when I’ve bleen so blue
    Don’t know what’s come over you
    You’ve found someone new
    And don’t it make my brown eyes blue

    I’ll be fine when you’re gone
    I’ll just baroo all night long
    Say it isn’t true
    And don’t it make my brown eyes blue

  33. Raemie L. says:

    I have hours, only napping
    My “gifts” are vengeance
    They’re never random

    No one knows what it’s like
    To eat just dry food
    Like I do
    I blame my hooman

  34. Raemie L. says:

    When my heart closes, give it Teh Qte
    Better melted than let ill will brew*
    When I sniffle, please tell me a joke
    Yet, let me both cry and smile all the way through

    If I barf up any McNuffets
    Show your kindness and your reason
    If I spit anger, please give me a blanket
    Wool or linen, no matter the season

    No one knows what it’s like
    To be the bad peep
    The sad or mad peep
    Behind the screen

    * well, not brew for too long.

  35. Katrina says:

    YAY DaytimeDeb! Great job! You can have an entire pack of Oreos or Reese’s Peanut Butter cups for that! Way to go! I think I’d better go eat some breakfast……

  36. Just beautiful!

  37. Alyssa Day says:

    The D’Artigo Sisters–half-human, half-fae operatives for the Otherworld Agency–are investigating a secret society that has unleashed dangerous magic. But before they’re done, they’ll have to stop a demon from devouring one of their souls…

  38. Ragdoll cats. Thank you. I looked them up. Feels like I need one now.

    Great lyrics here! Raemie L., niiice.


    “Rag Doll, livin’ in a movie…
    Hot tramp, Daddy’s little CUTIE…”

  39. I have a theory. The sweeter a cat looks, the more likely it is to be trouble. The ugly, old and gnarled cats I’ve known have been great. The ones who look (and are treated) like little princesses are just as likely to claw your face off as look at you.

    Adopt an ugly cat today! The miracle is, the first time they curl up in your lap, or playfully bat at you while you rub their bellies, they magically stop being ugly.

  40. Edward — I have plenty of experience which both supports and detracts from your theory. So much depends on the cat, the weather, attitudes of visitors, status of the food bowl, a red wheelbarrow…

  41. lol! all I can think of is that episode of buffy where they walk in on Giles singing that song at the coffee shop. The look on their faces….classic. i may have to watch that now.

  42. gfeeser says:

    On the blankie
    up there yonder,
    Blue eyes mewing on the screen…

    (sorry Willie)

  43. DaytimeDeb says:

    Thanks, Katrina. I’ll take the Reeses, please!

    Actually, it was easy inspiration… my cats hate being indoors. Especially now that we have:

    1. A stray cat who shows up and hangs out in “their” backyard, and
    2. A paid of bluejays who torment the stray cat when he comes into the yard, and when he is not there, they hop back and forth in front of my sliding glass door to torment my cats! I tell ya, I get dirty looks all the time when I refuse to let them out!

  44. the one on the right looks slightly disapproving.

  45. sooo cute. blue eyes r adorable. soooooo cute I luv kitties!

  46. What gorgeous girls! I swear I could get lost in their eyes… (looks around) Wait, where am I?

  47. Looks like it’s tuck-in time for teh kitties.

    Where are the cats’ pajamas?!

  48. Leslie Thomas says:

    to meg: as always, brilliance (LOL @ lyrics ending with ” food bowl….seems to be”)

    to theo: “red wheelbarrows”??
    (perhaps it’s what I used to call “a location joke”: Ya hadda be there, to get it???”)

    And don’t forget about the influence of white chickens.

  50. Actually they are my cats and they are ragdolls. That is a breed. They are sisters and they are 4 years old. I got them when they were 12 weeks old. They are so sweet although KiWi the blue point cream mitted can be a terror. Lizzie the flame point is the sweetest cat on the planet. Ragdolls actually love dogs so they have to stay inside – they own three. They are the boss and it is a riot to see them curled up on the dogs heads. I missed that photo op but I will try next time.
