The Catur-a-day-late Post

IN THE CLASSIC DISNEY animated feature, Lady and the Tramp, two of the supporting cast are a pair of purely Slinky McEvil* Siamese cats. They are evil enough to be considered primary antagonists to the cultured Lady and her beloved bad boy, Tramp. In a major tour de force of sound recording (for the day), Peggy Lee sang a tight-harmony duet between the pair, “We Are Siamese, If You Please.” (We are Siamese if you DON’T please.) During the routine the two cats slink around Lady’s Gilded Age Kansas City house, causing all sorts of mayhem.

We have three.

Schuyler (“Sky”) is the one giving the camera the evil eye. He’s actually the nicest one of the bunch.
