Rosie wants to start a new neighborhood cat band, and believe it or not, I’m finding myself experiencing Déjà vu.

You see, once upon a time, Tabs asked me to audition neighborhood cats for a new cat band called “Meow.”

It was supposed to be a fusion of classic rock, house music and ’70s disco divas.

(You know Tabs.)

I could never see the vision quite as clearly as he could, but he was a marketing genius, so I didn’t question him.

Anyway, we had barely started the auditions when the whole plan fell apart. It fell apart because Tabs realized that he wasn’t willing to share the stage with any other cats. Our kitty neighbor, Harris, was extremely disappointed because he was really interested in playing drums in the band. 🙁


Speaking of Harris, I’ve been spending a lot of time with him lately, because I’ve been cat sitting for him while his human assistant is out of town.

I assured Rosie that I would not conspire with the enemy (she and Harris don’t get along), but after she saw these pics, she has her suspicions…

Harris and I talked about his musical endeavors today. Turns out he’s an accomplished cat musician, and he’s in between gigs at the moment.

I brought this up with Rosie because she’s, coincidentally, been thinking about starting — wait for it — a neighborhood cat band herself!

Is this a phase all cats go through?? I don’t know.


Rosie actually plays keyboard. In fact, she recently listened to a Ted Talk about how to be more academically successful, and it suggested pursuing artistic hobbies, specifically music.

Even though she and Harris haven’t seen eye to eye in the past, she’s decided to make peace with him in the pursuit of academic excellence.

I can’t wait to go to one of their shows, although something tells me I’ll be in charge of the merch. 🙂
