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…

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 […]

April 21, 2014

Rennie was adopted not long after me. He was the cutest kitten, and we got along very well. Unfortunately, a few years down the road he became intolerant of a later adoptee named Ellie. For reasons which I won’t go into here, it became necessary to separate the two of them. That’s when Rennie became […]

Possessive Or Playful Or Both?

March 30, 2014

It seems that lately I’ve garnered quite a reputation in the gossip rags for being possessive of my piano – often to the point of rudeness. And while there is some truth to that (the possessive part, anyway), my reluctance to share the instrument is tempered by my inherent playfulness, as seen in this video […]
