    You should write a tune "Cat Hair in my Calton"

    If any of my cats ever even attempted sleeping in my case I'd be posting a picture in a thread entitled "Post a Picture of Your Cat on a Rotisserie"

    Don't get me wrong ... I love my cats (4 of 'em) but I sure don't want any of them in any of my cases ...

    Our cat is so dang skittish, she wouldn't even think of going in a case, although the calton looks like a "purr-fect" sleeping space. I even describe the large one I have as a queen-size bed for the F-5.

    Hey Wayne,

    You don't know me, but I played on Tom Hanway's CD with Barry and Vassar, which I think you did too.

    Ok ... I have to admit ... it does look like a wonderful resting place for a cat but I still don't want one of mine anywahere near my case. Many things could happen, few of them good.

    AlanN ... you're right! I was on Tom's CD ... last cut as I recall as part of the mando quartet that provided the intro to "Moscow Nights" ... That was a while ago but a fun session. What cut(s) were you on? I'll have to dig it out and give it a listen.

    Here is my little Gandalf doing the same. #Notice the cuddling of my string wiping cloth. Great neck support though isn't it?

    fmspinc --- is it just my imagination, or is that an exceptionally large cat sleeping in your case?

    Hey Wayne,

    Yeah, Tom wanted me on that "Moscow Nights", couldn't get it it together, as I recall. I played on "Nashville Blues", Barry and I did a twin break, came out pretty good, with Bob Harris and Vassar. I know Ben Freed; should you see him, tell him I said hi.

    - Alan

    This is no joke. I keep my empty cases closed because our cat has difficulty telling the difference between a litter box and any opened box/case. He hasn't ruined an instrument case, but I had a really nice hard computer case that had to be trashed.

    Otherwise, he's quite cool.

    Hey AlanN and Wayne, the thread is about cats in mando cases! #Congratulations though (PM him)! #Hoyt, the Calton you see actually has a spot in it where my frind's cat pi&*ed one night. #I was so mad and it took quite a few chemicals to get rid of the smell, plus the plush isn't exactly as plush as it used to be!

    Mad Dog, no the cat is normal size, its just the angle. Although our new kitten (at 8 mos. is already bigger than this cat, and we expect he could top out at about 20 lbs.)

    Hi mandoJeremy BushJunior ... apologies to you and anyone else who felt that my brief "conversation" with Alan was an attempt at hijacking the thread ... certainly wasn't my intent and I'd dare say wasn't Allan's either. I think we were probably caught in in the "gee it's a small world, we're on the same CD and here we are in the same thread too" syndrome.

    We apparently both have cats too, hence our original interest in this thread.

    Anyway, please accept my apologies again for the 'non cat in the case content'

    Wayne

    Introducing "Mac" or Ms. McWilliams, the Cafe's grandma cat who has her own dedicated case for sleeping. Has anyone else noticed that if you leave a Calton or a TKL open cats choose the most expensive option every time?

    I guess these are F-style cats?...

    My mother-in-laws cat likes to stretch and pull her claws through the rug. I hope your cats aren't doing that with your nice Calton tartan linings!

    I don't want to point the thread in any manner more scatological than it already is, but I too have had a cat 'poo' on a nice new smalldog case cover. It washed out OK , but was , obviously, never new again. Still, cats will crawl into anything left open, and I really don't mind.

    My cat Max - just waking up.
    His request - "O Solo Meow."
    I told him I only play Bluegrass.
    So he asked for "Little Birdie".

    Our cat threw up on my Dad's case, seeped in and ruined the finish on a brand new top-of-the-line Samick 12-string guitar.

    Russ: VERY funny. Whole new meaning to playing on cat gut.
    It's "Appalachia," (Apple-at-chuh), like I'm gunna throw an apple atcha' if you correct me again.

    Cat pee doesn't come out. My cat went in a banjo case. I called the maker to see what could be done. He said "yea there's something you can do, throw it away." So the Stelling got a new case, and I promised the cat to take up the mandolin. Now everyone's happy.



    We few, we happy few.
