  1. Hi Kelli Ann,

    Here is what it says about the author in Wikipedia:

    “And the Cat Came Back” (also known as “The Cat Came Back” or simply “The Cat”) is a children’s folk song written by Harry S. Miller in 1893.


  2. thanks for another great show:: i’ve always wondered who wrote the song ‘the cat came back.’ do you know, sienna? (there’s even a French version by (american) singer steve waring on our playlist at home…)

  3. Hi Persephone and Sienna! Thanks for having me on the show! I just listened, and totally enjoyed it. Somehow it seemed longer in the studio, though! ;-) I posted a couple of photos from the recording session on my blog at MontyHarper.blogspot.com. Hey, do I get a Sugar Free All-Stars CD now? Just kidding – actually, I’ll throw in a copy of “Paws Claws Scales and Tales” for your contest winner, if they also post a comment to my blog!
