Most pianists have hearts and feelings, maybe they understand cats more than others.

Cats keep mice out of the action. Also, on a typically unrelated note, when I was a kid taking lessons we had a cat who would climb up on the bench next to me. Once I would start practicing literature (not scales, arpeggios or Hanon but real pieces of music) if I stopped he would swat me with a soft paw (no claws out) to get me to resume playing. I have 1.5 dogs now, but I will never forget that cat. Maybe a cat in the future? My big dog would be OK with that, she's mellow (STD poodle): the little one? No.


Practice makes permanent. CORRECT practice makes perfect.

btw...my cats are not allowed on my pianos...


I would agree with this as well. We own a Siamese cat and my wife loves her independence. She doesn't even need to be carried out if she wants to play, as we have installed a cat door, a recent home feature that I definitely love, due to the convenience it provides for our cat to come and go as she please.
