Atticus on Piano

  1. Very elegant! Does he like the violine? I’d suppose, that this might not be his favourite instrument…
    We had a burmese tomcat, that went wild when he heard hurdy-gurdies 😉

    • Wasn’t he got excited with the wheel and the pedaling foot, not with the sound. 😀

      • Haha! No – it was the voice. He probably heard monsters, meowing cats, howling wind, whatever…
        He tried to attack the hurdy-gurdy 😉

    • Thank you, Stefan. No, you’re right, Atticus isn’t too fond of the violin. 🙂 That’s pretty funny about your burmese tomcat and the hurdy-gurdy.

  2. Atticus looks quite happy up on top of the piano…..waiting for the concert to begin perhaps??

    • Yes, he was quite settled in there. It is one of his favorite spots UNTIL the music starts. 😉

  3. Well, I do love cats and violins both. And usually cats, even more than violins. Very nice.

    • Wonderful. You’d be right at home in our house then, Shimon. 🙂 Thank you very much for your nice comment, and for the visit.

  4. what a splendid way to immerse yourself with the better things in life ! (was he named after the Atticus in the novel ‘To kill a mockingbird’? a truly fine character that is)

    • Thank you, Katrien. Yes, Atticus is indeed named after Atticus Finch. 🙂

  5. Cats like to stay somewhere high on top.
    (and jump onto the shoulder)
    Doesn’t he chase your fingers playing on the key ?
    Or you just smack him off 😀

    • Atticus doesn’t usually stick around once the music starts. 😀 Too much noise for his delicate ears.

  6. Cats, violins, pianos and retro prints…..
    Thats my kinda house you have there!

    • Why thank you, Stuart! It’s our kinda house, too. We love it (when we’re not dealing with the many problems that come up in old homes). It’s a Victorian house, built in 1900. Lots of character. 🙂
      Thanks for the visit, Stuart!

      • Talking of visits I’m free for christmas…I don’t mind sharing the top of the piano with Atticus.

  7. Ah, I would happily join Stuart! 😉 I hated the sound of the piano about as much as Atticus for many years because Lucy forced all three of us to take piano lessons. I played London Bridge, badly, in a recital. I think that must have been the end of my musical training. I like this image very much.
