More thoughts about cats...

Well, I can claim most cat stories are boring (well, unless they're up to something really bad...for some reason, naughty animal behavior is always a compelling thing for me), but I don't want anyone to think that I find cats themselves boring! So not true. There's just something about watching a cat as opposed to hearing about it. I think just about all cat stories require a good visual to make them interesting.

My cousin posted this video on his Facebook page a couple days ago. I had seen Nora the piano playing cat before (and she's wonderful) but was not aware that her music career had stepped up a couple notches. Oh my, what a talented cat. A Lithuanian composer/conductor took it upon himself to create a video duet with the piano playing kitty and.....well, grab a cup of coffee and just slow down for five minutes and watch. If I told you about it, it might be a mildly interesting one sentence story, but watching the "CATcerto?" You'll be positively enchanted. :-)

Charming, especially the part where he rubs the keys with his head.

I usually lurk on your blog. But I had to comment. The Catcerto was time well spent. I am sending the link to my daughter who teaches piano.

Oh, it is, Maria!! Enchanting is quite the word. Love how this video came out.

I am still trying to catch up on my favorite blogs.
