Sometimes cats walk on the piano keyboard and give me new exciting ideas. )

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.

Hi. For the last 8 years i have had a female cat and yesterday in the morning i found it dead outside probably after some kind of bird attack and now i am devastated. We had spent so many time together and she loved me so much that just an eye contact was able to comunicate so many things between us. I have been crying and barely can eat. Its not just a cat it was part of me and i can feel dead inside of me. There is no much more i can say. But those of you who have cats oh man enjoy their company and never treat thene as if the things they do make no sense. They are smart and their company is such a blessing.
Live must keep going on but now i almost am going crazy. Just 2 days ago she was there waiting for me, running around, looking at me with those deep eyes. It's going to be a very sad autumn this year for me.
Many people will say it was just a cat. I myself am trying to convence myself that it was just a cat. Then i look around the places she used to be, to sit, eat, run, tears come down my face.
I hope soon this pain will cease. I am no strong enough to endure it for a long time.
Thanks for reading. I know there is out there people with real problems that make mine a ridiculous thing. I intellectually know it but anyway my body refuses to accept it.
