Sadly yes.... I went down to get the mail. I left the CT (that's an
old Selmer clarinet model, not intended to describe a girl I dated in
high school) resting on top of the open case. Real old case like the
clarinet, wood shell, blue plush lining. Buncha mouthpieces and
ligatures and a reed case in the accessory compartment.

Back up with the mail...and Pushkin El Pussygatto is sitting on the
table, and I swear to God she's grinning. Oh wow...somebody fetch the
lysol, quick. I thought cats, when they got mad at you, only did that
in places like your shoes or on the bed.... The repairman thought he
was going crazy when I brought it in for an overhaul. "Jesus K. Reyst,
buddy," he asked me, "was your cat trying to play this?" "No," I said,
"and that wasn't a silver bullet she left either."

Someone had taken the Buddy DeFranco CD out of the stereo. I found
myself listening to Betty Buckley cat-terwauling "Midnight."
