Another one.

I was trying to make a serious video, of my own composition.

 

My cat jumped up on my shoulder.

 

So, now it's not so serious :)

Thats great. clap

Your friend there, looks content. I have humming birds that stop flying at the window feeders and "Watch" when I play. 1 or 2 at a time, but its still nice to have an audience of humming birds or other critters.

Wow, that looks lovely! Sounds nice too once I listen to is without seeing the cat and getting all distracted...! clap I might just teach my cat to lay on my shoulders like that, just for the cozy look of it. She already likes my violin playing, so I don't see why it's wouldn't work. Then again, maybe she likes it a bit too much; she'd probably try to eat the bow... or at least whap at it with her paws... rofl

When I used to practice my music, my dog used to lay on my feet and go to sleep.

 

By the way, I love your playing.

So does the cat get a writing credit, or is he/she just a session bloke?

No, there's not a lot of tension there. I like to keep it 'un-tight' :)

hehe! Actually, I do tie a little bit of pink fluorescent ribbon to the end of my bow, when I go to the Fidde Hell events. A few years back, when I got home after one of these events, I found I had a cheap and nasty bow, and someone ended up with my Coda NX. I don't know if it was accidental, or planned. So, from now on, it's really obvious which bow is mine.

On a sad note, my little cat you saw in the video is no longer with us, but she did have a great life ...

Sorry to hear about the loss of your cat. Must have been hard. I'm sure she did have a great life.
