Malvina the cat.

We were practicing the other night, Danielle on violin and me on cello, and looked out the window to find a cat sitting out back about twenty from the house, listening. We never see it unless we play music, which is every night. We were playing Malvina at the time, so that is the name we gave this cat. This morning I was playing the cello and it appeared again. Kind of nice for some reason.

Otherwise we are getting ready for fiddle camp. So exciting. Getting a new tent for this year, and a solar panel for charging cell phones, and a lamp. I will be studying the cello this year, but will play fiddle at the contra dances and jam sessions.

My cat runs to the door when I get out the fiddle, banjo, ukulele or guitar. He looks stressed and wants out! Have fun at MFC. Interesting comment about a solar panel for charging, where should I look to find a source? Have you had a good experience with the one you purchased?

Thanks, Sue.
Solar panels come various sizes from $50 and up.
Just Google solar panels. I got this one from Harbor Freight.

My daughter brought her moma cat and kitten home from her apartment at college. We sat them up in my son's room so as to keep them save from our large tom cat. I thought that they must be getting bored in that little room so I set up my music stand and played a tune or two. They were NOT AMUSED but they did help clean out some of the dust bunnies living under my son's bed after the way they shot like lightning under there. Have fun at camp!

I had a similar situation with a neighbor's cat. Would see her come around when I was playing. She even left me one of her fresh-bagged shrews. But the cat was very skiddish when being approached by strangers. Even if she liked the music, NOT friendly. All cats are the same, but different. :D
