Jump back! Kevin Bacon has some advice for cat lovers. (Did you catch that reference to Kevin – Jump back. Am I a hip cat or what!)
Here’s what Kevin had to say, via his charity SixDegrees.Org on Twitter.

The name of Kevin’s charity is based on the philosophy that “Any one person (including me, Kevin Bacon) is connected to any other person through six or fewer relationships, because it’s a small world.” That’s what it says on the SixDegrees.Org website.
So, how many degrees of separation does that put between me and Kevin. Well, I’m here to tell you that Kevin and I have a lot in common. We’re both handsome and fashionable. Hey, I keep my coat well-groomed and in perfect condition at all times! All I need is a maroon jacket…ha! We’re also both smart, popular, sought after, talented. Do I need to go on? Cuz’ I can go on all day!
Now, in honor of Kevin’s help in promoting us (cats, I mean), I’m planning a special reprisal of his 1984 blockbuster movie, Footloose. Here are some of the songs I have planned.
- “I Need a Feline” (instead of “I Need a Hero”)
- “Let’s Hear It for the Cat” (instead of “Let’s Hear It for the Boy”)
- “Somebody’s Paws” (instead of “Somebody’s Eyes”)
- “That Tom Gets Around” (instead of “That Girl Gets Around”)
- “Dancing in the ‘Nip” (instead of “Dancing in the Sheets”) – ‘Nip, Catnip; get it?
- “I’ve Been Waiting for a Home Like Yours” (instead of “I’ve Been Waiting for a Girl Like You”)
More titles and lyrics coming. But that’s what I have so far. What do you think?
Oh, and who will do the instrumentals? Why Keyboard Cat, of course. Who else?
For my female love interest, I’m thinking of Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy Cat. Do you think she would do it?
On a serious note, though, all of us here at CATalyst Council want to sincerely thank Kevin and his SixDegrees.Org team for helping us promote our favorite species, the cat. Any and all help is greatly appreciated and these folks are wonderful to acknowledge what we already know, that cats make the purrfect companion. We can always use help getting the word out that cats, especially shelter/rescue cats, make great pets but they also require love and regular veterinary health care. So, thank you very much, Kevin and SixDegrees.Org. Four paws up to you!
Now, LET’S DANCE!
