Sing these songs with your child:
My Kitty
I have a little kitty (hold up first and fourth fingers as ears)
He is quick as he can be (make a quick, side-ways motion with hand)
He jumps upon my lap (cup one hand in the palm of the other hand)
And purrs a song to me

Frisky Puppy
See the frisky puppy
With whiskers on his nose
He wiggles his tail
And he bounces on his toes
When he gets hungry
What do you suppose?
He grabs a tasty bone
And away he goes

1 Little, 2 Little, 3 Little Fishes
(To the tune of 1 Little, 2 Little, 3 Little Indians)

1 little, 2 little, 3 little fishes,
4 little, 5 little, 6 little fishes,
7 little, 8 little, 9 little fishes,
10 little fishes in the pond.

How Much is that Doggy in the Window?
How much is that doggy in the window? Ruff, Ruff
The one with the wiggly tail
How much is that doggy in the window? Ruff, Ruff
I do hope that doggy's for sale

The Veterinarian
(Sung to Oh my Darlin)

Bring your dogs, bring your cats,
Bring your hamsters one by one.
I take care of the animals,
I am a veterinarian.
