I'm not sure why, but cats seem to hate accordions! My old cat, Stripe, used to just get up and leave the room when I played, but these two will come running from any part of the house just to put a stop to it! 😁 I've come to the conclusion that they must be sensitive to the vibrations it emanates. They love the piano which is just as loud (and even try to play it themselves!) so it isn't the volume. And it isn't the sound, because they don't mind when I listen to recordings of accordion music! But whatever the reason, this is what happens every time I try to play! We have a concert tomorrow, so if my stand partner asks me why I obviously didn't practice, this is my excuse! Both kitties were sleeping in the kitchen when I started playing, but it didn't take them long to come marching in! At first they weren't really biting that hard...
But then when I tried to play again, Olga became more insistent! 😁
These two are so much fun...there is never a dull moment anymore! 😊
