Just wanted to say "thanks" for the Jingle Bells version with bowing instructions...really enjoying it!  The cats are still running to other rooms while I practice but maybe they'll be deaf in time!! 🙂

The important thing is that they are allowing you to practice, play and have fun. 🙂

My cat likes to come listen and see what I am doing, at least sometimes. She may not stay for long though. Eventually she gets board and wanders off.

It kind of surprised me, that even in my earliest sessions, when I played my worst, she was curious about what I was doing. Not afraid of the noise at all.

That's funny. I have never been able to play around animals as my wife and our kids are quite allergic.

My cat likes the sound, especially if I slide my finger up the string, he'll chirp back at the sound. My dogs hate it. My oldest one wants to be by me when I play (just because he wants to follow me everywhere), but he'll lay by my feet and cry because he hates the sound, lol.

My brother tells me that his dog hates the sound of him playing the violin.

Perhaps at least some cats can tolerate the sound of a violin, while dogs can't take it.

I love dogs, but prefer not to have one while living in an apartment. Cats, however, do not mind apartment living at all, and are much lower maintenance.

I will have to see if my cat responds to sliding a finger up a string. I had not thought to try that. She is often curious as to what I am doing though.

As for animals and allergies, both sides of my family usually had pets around when I was growing up, especially my dad's side. None of us are allergic to cats, dogs, or any other animal that I have come across. Country living, early on, I guess, helps build up a resistance to that kind of thing.

My 1.5 year old Aussie pup stays in the room with me when I play and even will lay by my side.  Guess she approves?
