Youre lucky youre dealing with a lightweight bird.
If our cat hears me playing and can get in the door he jumps on my shoulder and sits on top of the accordion. Only issue is that he weighs 7 kilos and its game over. I was thinking of teaching him to play, but am frightened he would turn out to be a better player than I am.
Our new neighbours have named him Scrapper, as he has been seen fighting with several local cats. We had two regulars in our garden but we havent seen either of them now for over a month. No second prizes yet, but the vet is only along the road if we need him.
I'll have you know that birds no lightweight... Cats are terrified of him... In fact they love it when i get the accordion out as they get to hide in the case..
Thanks for the Dr Louie link, first time I've encountered him... Though I'd hopefully been influenced by Prof Lonnie Smith, the hammond player, on this one....
