Don't you just love cats! So unpredictable! I'm quite sure Briggsy thought he was doing you a great service by cleaning your bowhair. Life is never dull with a cat in the house!

Well, that COULD be. But the "If you weren't the one who feeds me, I'd claw you to shreds for picking up that fiddle!" looks I get from him might indicate otherwise.

LOL! Bj someday you avatar has to have you and that poor cat sitting with the fiddle between you two!

Well, actually, if you look at my avatar, the cat is glaring at me and the fiddle IS between us, as he comtemplates using it as a scratching post. Or, worse, a litter pan.

I hear that cats like the taste of antifreeze (ethylene glycol). Don't you go tasting that, ya hear?

I have to wonder if it's a racial memory from the time when catgut was used for the strings.
The minute I put the fiddle down he is the most lovey lapcat I've ever been possessed by.

Great story. I dreamed last night that our cat ate my banjo neck that I just made the other day. They do do the strangest things...

Cats have a sixth sense. He knew you had a problem and was willing to help.

ROFL! He's got a sixth sense all right! He knows exactly how to bedevil me!

LOL! Doesn't that just beat all!
I think what it is is that cats (or some cats, anyway)
are VERY intelligent, but have totally different
priorities and interests from human beings.
Our fascinating fiddles are just noisemakers to them.
And it has nothing to do with cat gut-
my cat hates the harmonica just as bad-
it's gotta be the treble.
Any animal that hunts birds and mice has to have a sense of hearing that's very sensitive to hearing high pitched squeaks and chirps.
But instead of these short little sounds,
fiddles/violins (and harmonicas) put out these continuous streams of high pitched sound. Gotta be a serious circuit overload going on!
