If it’s true that one must suffer in order to sing the blues, then this cat must have been put through the wringer. Poor kitty! He’s been down so long, it’s starting to look like up.

As someone in the background plays a blues riff on guitar, kitty meows in time in what seems like classic call-and-response. In fact, kitty seems so beat down by the world that he barely lifts his head off his paw, managing only a feeble meow now and then.

It looks like kitty had led a seriously hard-luck life. Or maybe, just maybe, he’s simply ticked off because some guitar player won’t let him nap. Either way, we call it the blues.
