This is the English version of a song I wrote in French in a Paris hotel on my honeymoon in july 1994. I then recorded it the following month with Kahimi Karie. (…)
I wrote the English lyrics at the request of Mike Alway. The song is about a cat who falls tragically in love with a human. It owes something to Natsume Soseki’s excellent novel ‘I am a cat’. ‘I am a kitten’ joins a long list of Momus songs about impossible love.
