"Kitty" is the name of the third single by the post-grunge/alternative rock band The Presidents of the United States of America. The song, along with "Lump", and "Peaches" helped propel Presidents of the United States of America to a platinum level.

"Kitty" had originally appeared on the demo tape Froggystyle. This version was entitled "Kitty at My Foot". According to Dave Dederer, the song was based "as far as I know" on a true story about "a bad little cat that lived in some apartment Chris shared with some folks in Boston."[1]
