Songs of the Cat was released by Highbridge Audio in 1991. It is a collection of songs and spoken-word pieces about cats, performed by Garrison Keillor and Frederica von Stade. Other than the traditional The Cat Came Back, the selections were written by Keillor; some are entirely original, and some are recognizable as parodies set to other folk music or even to classical music.

The lyrics of one song, "Cat, You Better Come Back", were later illustrated and republished as a children's book with the same title.
