Caturday — How Not To Tread Stealthily

This doesn’t really have much to do with cats, but I have the song stuck in my head and I thought I’d pass it on to as many people as possible.

I, like so many others through the years, am a Gilbert and Sullivan addict. There is no known cure. Operettas Anonymous doesn’t help; I went to a meeting once, and we all ended up singing “I’ve Got A Little List” from The Mikado.

This song in my head now is “With Catlike Tread”, which squiggles it in under the wire on Caturday. It does here, anyway. It’s my dang blog, and what I say goes, right? Right.

If you want to listen to The Pirates of Penzance, from which this video comes, transferred from 78 rpm vinyl records, click on this link to If you want to know more about Gilbert and Sullivan, hit The Gilbert And Sullivan Archive. To learn more about the Kevin Kline (sigh) version from which this clip comes, check out the Pirates of Penzance page at the Internet Movie DataBase. If you want to buy a copy of this or another version, check out the Amazon Pirates of Penzance page and go from there.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, I give you “With Catlike Tread” from The Pirates of Penzance.

You’re welcome.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character wants someone to be quiet but gets no cooperation.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
