When a Cat Loves a Bunneh

[Apologies to Percy Sledge and, um, Michael Bolton]

When a cat loves a bunneh
he can’t keep his mind on nothing else
He’ll trade the world for the good thing he’s found
If she is bad, he can’t see it, she can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down

When a cat loves a bunneh, spend his very last dime
Tryin’ to hold on to what he needs
He’d give up all his comforts, sleep out in the rain
If she said that’s the way it ought to be

Well, this cat loves a bunneh
I gave you everything I had
Tryin’ to hold on to your precious love
Baby, please don’t treat me bad

When a cat loves a bunneh, down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she played him for a fool, he’s the last one to know
Lovin’ eyes can’t ever see

When a cat loves a bunneh, he can do her no wrong
He can never own some other hamster
Yes, when a cat loves a bunneh I know exactly how he feels’Cause baby, baby, baby, you’re my world

  1. Kitteh looks just like my Nellie!

  2. warrior rabbit says:

    Bun love, Bun heart,
    Let’s get together and feel all right

    Also, matchingks!

    P.S. — Who’s the interloper in shot 4?

  3. cellarmouse says:

    and this is why meg will be time magazine’s person-of-the-year…

  4. bunny pillow!! oh my favorite ❤

  5. Pic #4 reminds me of the ‘kitty cat dance’ meme:
    Caution: earworm and purrvocative posing!

  6. I can never get to much kitties and bunnies.
    Michael Bolton…not so much.

  7. Honestly, I think the bunneh’s the stalker here. Looks like the cat was just minding his own business and wham! Bunny hops into his bed, hanging out by his feet so that kitty doesn’t see him right away.

  8. Methinks I see some bunny “beads” in the bed with them.

  9. that is DEFINITELY one of my favorite things in the entire world, it never gets old!!

  10. The kitteh and bunneh are kind of matchingks!

  11. Look at the fourth picture down– the dark kitteh head coming in on the right, saying “Hey bro, you all right down there?”

  12. Blue Footed Booby says:

    My roommates randomly walk around singing this and it makes me want to light them on fire.

  13. click on the website link, some of the pics are EVEN CUTER than these ones!

  14. He does kind of look like he’s checking to see like he’s breathing.

  15. Moi, Actually says:

    You’re right. Who would have thought it possible. Must be a great household with wonderful rescue-oriented peeps.

  16. It looks like the bunneh also loves the cat – but highly disapproves of Michael Bolton…

  17. People sneer at Michael Bolton a lot, but he’s the only pop singer I’ve ever heard who didn’t sound like a complete hack when singing with a trained opera singer.

  18. I love Percy Sledge. Hearing his amazing and passionate live performance of this song throughout this post!

  19. Alice Shortcake says:

    I suspect that Grey Cat is staging an intervention.

  20. Did you live a sheltered life? Or what’s the reason you don’t know this:

  21. Um… Freddie Mercury? Who did an album of duets with an opera singer, famously.

  22. Grey Cat (Sir-not-appearing-in-this-Tumblr, AKA Aggie) was just aiming to annoy Relic by interrupting lazytime.

  23. *clap clap clap*

    Today is also Smudge’s one year adoptiversary!

  24. Judas Priest’s Rob Halford also has a four-octave range, and I read an online article once, written by someone who was actually trained as an opera singer, evaluating his and other heavy metal vocalists’ voices in terms of classical music chops. Halford rated quite highly, as I recall.

    Don’t think he’s ever done a cover of “When A Man Loves A Woman,” though. 🙂

  25. I don’t know, but the cowkitty doesn’t seem to mind. ♥

  26. I would be surprised too. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  27. I think I’m the only one who read the text as “Michael Bolton HoverCRAFT…”

  28. Fird Birfle says:

    I love the love ‘tween these two critters …..

    The Love that Dare not Speak Its Name …

  29. amen! no Bolton for me, only Mr. Sledge does this song!!!

  30. Michael Bolton fact #6: he got very angry and huffy when the judges criticized his dancing on DWTS. He felt disrespected and obviously didn’t realize what kind of gig he’d signed up for.

  31. Was it full of eels?


  32. YIPEE 😀

  33. AWW 😀 So sweet to see a cat and a rabbit snuggling each other 😀

  34. The bunny is all “Why are you kissin’ mah cat?!”

  35. You realize I had to watch it after you said that!
