No sane hoomin or furchild is happy all the time and the Furkids were “having a moment” this week. While I assured them that we all appreciate their mission to make life lovelier and more fun, I suggested that it would be okay to vent a little if they’re feeling low. That idea really perked them up and off they went searching for the most upbeat song they could find about feeling down. (What can I say… they’re furkids, right? Hoomin logic doesn’t apply.) But as it turns out, Elton John is on their wavelength and had the purrfect song.

So here’s their upbeat version of feeling low — and they hope you enjoy it!

I’m sorry to say it but they used their most pathetic expressions to con coins out of passers-by for the jukebox this week — seems to be their version of an April Fool’s joke, except it isn’t confined to April 1st.

Get yourself comfy, press play, then scroll down and sing along with the Furkids illustrated lyrics with gay abandon!

  1. Thank you Furkids and Michelle. And upbeat song despite the lyrics, and the photos matched the lyrics perfectly. Loved the coda too.

    Who doesn’t love Elton?

  2. {{{Michelle}}} Been there, Furkids. Been there. But you illustrate it so very well. It may not bring energy but it certainly brings a smile. Skritches & Healing Energy & moar {{{HUGS}}} all around as appropriate.

  3. Another epic, Mopsy! I see your pics in the library and wonder, “What will she come up this week?” And it’s always something so much more imaginative and inventive than I can dream of.

    Keep them coming!!
