Ian Anderson (you may know him as the frontman for Jethro Tull) put out a charming album in 2003 titled Rupi's Dance. Rupi at the time was a wee black girl kitten who has a song of the same name in her honor among the tracks. Another is called "Old Black Cat," and starts so:
My old black cat passed away this morning
He never knew what a hard day was.
Woke up late and danced on tin roofs.
