ID:	188109This is Boris. He unfortunately passed away last month but I thought he looked good in his case and had to share. He liked to listen to and sing along with whatever I was playing. He also was a big meowing fan of classical mandolin and solo violin CDs.
    I am so sorry for your loss. I know how Lasting and deep that pain can be. Boris was a real beauty and I am glad you shared his picture with us. Was Boris a seal-point Birman? He looks very much like one. We have known a number of Birmans and they have all had wonderful, loving personalities. Thank you very much for sharing your memories of Boris with us. There are few pleasures as heart-warming as sharing music with a cat who enjoys it.

    Best wishes,

    Bob

    Thanks for that Bob.
    It's always hard losing a pet/family member. Boris was a Ragdoll and, like Birmans, very laidback and affectionate.

    Cheers,
    Bradley

    What's cuter than a cat in a case? Two cats in a case! That's Neptune tending to Gryphon, who tolerates the attention.

    Though getting the case all to himself isn't so bad, either.

    Between those photos, I see at least 5 instruments out, so it seems that if they wanted a case to themselves, it should be available. I'm envious that your cats are bonded. Mine would never share a case. It would be more like, can I chase the other guy out so that I can get comfortable there instead?

    Not in my case (didn't have a mando then), but in the case of a friend who passed last year.

    p.s. I do have a case now, and she (same cat) gets in or on it as soon as an opportunity arises. I may just give her the case, since it (older Eastman Bobelock style) has both zippers broken. Repair likely more than a decent replacement.

    Ha ha ha! Good eye! Actually, the only cases are mine and my friend's ukulele case. In an earlier post, Gryphon was snoozing in the ukulele case. They moved up to this configuration.

    But these were from visits to my friend's place. So not all the instruments had cases, at least not open and ready for habitation. The cats are brothers, and Neptune was the runt of the litter, so perhaps that was motivation for currying favor with Gryphon this way. But yes - it did seem extraordinary they would carry like this, sharing such a small space.

    I enjoy walking barefoot and playing my mandolin, and if I can do both at once, you'd be hard pressed to find a happier soul.

    Thanks, I think? I don't see anything particularly special about these cats, though they surely are pleasant enough. There are some cats in this thread, though, who are true visual delights. And they know how to fill a case.

    Neptune has the funniest, cutest, tiniest little voice, though.

    I think he's saying, "Here's the can. Where's the tuna?"

    My avatar is my sweet boy Gabe who journeyed to the rainbow bridge a few weeks ago. He would always sit with me while I played, helped me change strings, and attended all the Zoom sessions this last year…after 15 years together he’s left a big hole in my heart for sure…

    Bigskygirl, I'm so sorry for your loss. Even though we know they can't live forever, it's always tough.

    Here's a strange but comforting story about a cat's passing. My daughter left her cat, Whiskers, at home when she went to college in Maryland. Whiskers was an amazing huntress in her younger days, but as she got older, she developed multiple serious health issues. One morning she couldn't breathe right; we took her to the emergency vet and she didn't come home. My daughter's boyfriend (now husband) was at home in Oregon then, and had no idea of what had happened. He was sleeping when Whiskers passed, but at the same time it happened, he had a dream about her running free through a beautiful meadow.

    Hi Sue, thank you for that wonderful story. Gabe has since come to me in a dream - he was very sick at the end after battling multiple infections and had lost his strength..in the dream he was strong and moving around like a young cat. I had a similar dream when my dad died after a long illness and a friend told me they were letting me know they were ok now…here’s a pic from a few years ago of him helping me build a guitar.

    So St Peter needs a break and asks God to take his seat for a bit,. While God is sitting at the Golden Gates and he sees two dogs and a cat approach. When in front of him he says"explain yourselves and why you should be admitted into Heaven." The first dog says " I have always been a good dog and once saved a child from drowning in a pond". "Very well, you may enter and sit beside me on my right side". He turns to the second dog and asks "and how about you?" The second dog says" well, I have always been a good too but while have never saved a child, I have never bitten let alone growled at anyone". "Very well, come in and sit at my left side", responds God. God, then looks at the cat and asks"what about you"? The cat replies "I believe you are sitting in my chair".

    Great thread idea, and it certainly brings out a few uptight attitudes!

    You should always buy two instruments at a time so they won't feel the need to compete (good idea, huh?)!
