So here it is on day 2 of learning to play the violin and apart from sounding like a scratched cat, when I play I have noticed that my female cat starts to meow and smooch around my legs and then my male cat Harry gets all ....ummm, well you know and then it's on for young and old. Is this normal?  It all finishes when I put down my violin.

BillyG says absolutely nothing !   LOL

But WELCOME to the forum, @Linda Ellis !   Enjoy your journey with the violin !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Cat's are a lot like people.

Anyway, I hope they let you practice. LOL

Welcome Linda!

my cat had a 'reaction' to my playing too, he'd come over and meow at me and lightly tap me on the shin.My mom's two did the same thing whenever she's play on her harmonica. It may have something to do with frequency and their hearing

It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself. Johann S.Bach

I usually practice away from my animals (my 3 little dogs hate the violin) but played for my cat to see what he'd do, and he started getting curious and meowing to me whenever I played a note for him. I could tell he liked it.

When I was going to let him sniff the violin, though, he hissed at it, lol.

One of my cats (Lenin) just runs off, and the other (Tiny Tina) just looks morose, and periodically winces...
