Hang in there! Loveable songs for fans of felines.

The perfect mood-setter for people who like their lovers loyal, cuddly and coughing up hair. Between the USA for Africa parody, the finger-popping swing tune and the New Order rip ("Mixed-Up Human Race" actually nails their sense of alienation), the target audience for Love Songs for Cat Lovers appears to be anyone who gets a visceral reaction when they hear the word "cat." Friskiest of all is "From Here On Out," a Stephanie Mills-styled soul tribute to a neglected kitty that's so sultry and wet that it's got to be breaking some law — hey, Mittens, it worked out for Beauty and the Beast, right?
