Hamper Hiding with Nora…

HamperHiding

Around here, B & B call this Hamper Hiding, and no one does it better than yours truly. Actually, I’m the only one of seven cats who does it. It’s my snuggy winter home, a definite retreat from sibling rivalry, and a quiet place for relaxation and reflection. It’s my Bodhi tree. Photo credit: Burnell Yow!

Nora Holding Court Wherever She Wants

by Nora The Piano Cat on September 30, 2014

When you are the diva of piano-playing cats, you may hold court wherever you please. And it often pleases me to do so at the bottom of the stairs on the second floor, which also happens to be my piano studio. From this vantage point I can monitor any of my siblings as they venture from the third floor bedroom or computer room. And I am the first to know when a student arrives at the front door. While it is very important to be aware of the comings and goings of all who are not moi, that bottom stair also affords the opportunity to disappear quite qucikly beneath the stairs should the need arise. Because, while it is true that I am the diva, I am not without my detractors, namely my sibling Max, who is frequently up to no good. But that’s a whole other story.

Nora Lends A Paw…Both, Actually

September 17, 2014

Natale Carabello is my piano tuner. One thing I really like about Natale, in addition to his ability to make my piano sing under my paws, is that he doesn’t mind me keeping a very close eye on the goings on, and on my guarding his bag of tools from would be saboteurs – I’m […]

I may not have opposable thumbs, but I do oppose internet censorship…

August 13, 2014

To my freedom-loving fans and friends: Do you care about censorship of information online? There’s a new internet anti-censorship movement afoot. Or should I say “apaw”? It’s called The Pussy Cat Riot <http://thepussycatriot.org/>. It’s cat-inspired, so it naturally caught my eye. But even my fur-challenged friends might like to check it out.

It’s not all interviews, paparazzi, and bright lights…

August 13, 2014

Some people, and even my many feline friends and fans, tend to think my life as The Piano Cat is one of constant excitement and unending adoration from my purrsonal assistants. Not so! Most days I spend a good deal of time in my favorite chair in the piano studio. It was Burnell’s first gift […]

Nora Welcomes Gabby To Her Piano…

June 20, 2014

This has been quite a day, indeed! And frankly I’m just as confused as you probably are! I’m sure you’ve seen the videos where I react possessively when anyone, human or cat, approaches the keys of my beloved piano. Gabby (pictured above – she’s the smaller one) has on more than one occasion been subjected […]

Where’s Nora?

May 26, 2014

Alright, I agree that I’m much too much a star to ever really blend in. But on those rare occasions when I seek a little anonymity, I head on down to under-the-piano land and join an animal cast of characters that includes frogs, lizards, snakes, cats, fish, and even a turkey. And if I keep […]
