Kat's Song #2

At Sitka’s request, I wrote a new song. Many of my loyal fans will remember my first song, “Before They Leave”, which is sure to be a number one song on the Dogboard Music Charts any day now. This new song is titled “Traction (I Can’t Get No)”. I was inspired to write this song after one too many days of trying to run through the house only to find that I can’t get a good grip on the floors. And now, without further ado, I hope you enjoy my new song. (You should sing it to the tune of The Rolling Stones’ song “Satisfaction (I Can’t Get No)”.)

Traction (I Can’t Get No)
By Katherine Olivia

I can't get no four paw traction
I can't get no four paw traction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm runnin' in my house
And I want to run to the patio
I keep slippin’ on the floor
That useless hardwood floor
It keeps me from where I want to go
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what I say

I can't get no four paw traction
I can't get no four paw traction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm sleepin' on the bed
And that cat comes up and hurdles me
I want to chase him down the hall
But I can't because I just slip and slide
Then he goes and gets away
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what I say

I can't get no four paw traction
I can't get no four paw traction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm chewin' on my Nylabone
And I’m gettin' barked at by silly Steve
And I'm tryin' to ignore him but it’s hard
I want to jump up and chase him away
But if I do, I’ll probably slide into the wall
I can't get no, oh no no no
Hey hey hey, that's what I say

I can't get no, I can't get no
I can't get no four paw traction
No four paw traction, no four paw traction, no four paw traction

That was a wonderful song!! We have hard wood floors here too. Luckily, cuz Abby has the hardest time getting around, we have lots of area rugs and runners so we can have traction for where we need to go. Maybe your humans can buy some of those for the areas you mentioned.

What, you're not going to sing it for us? I had such high hopes.

We're going to changing over to hardwood floors soon. The boxes of flooring have been aging in the family room for a few years. They wanted to wait until Eva was "dependable", then to get over her fear of hard floors and then they just got lazy.
