Gizmo's RevengeIn Retrospect

Funky Shuffle dedicated to my cat, Gizmo. Gizmo coveted my son Brennan's pet lizard, observing it patiently while it taunted Gizmo from the safety of its glass cage for months. When the lizard escaped the cage one evening, Gizmo exacted a terrible revenge. Listen for the cat stalking his prey halfway through the tune.
