LOL. Good stories.

The problem Bastiaan...is that I have no way of keeping a cat from going into my upstairs...I have no doors to keep it out.

I would really like to have a pet in my apartment (mainly because I'm finally allowed to, and I want a "roommate" [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] ). However, if I'm going to have many problems with a cat chewing on things and scratching...and leaving its mark...then maybe the best thing to do is NOT to get a pet.

I think i wasnt too clear.

I think scratching wouldnt be the biggest problem. They do like to get their nails into something, but mainly they like stuff like tables and chairs for that. Also a guitarcabinet would be nice for the to scratch... If they are allowed outside, they will scratch some trees too, and some less in the house. If they are male, you will have the marking problem. if they are not "fixed" soon enough. You could try making a cover drom a big plastic tablecloth to cover your equipment, and put everything away when not in use. Cats normally dont chew on cables...

They are also incredibly curious and persisting. They WILL try to look at your stuff, and walk over and in it.....

Hi ashenvy,

You could always start off with a kitten and train it for proper "studio etiquette". I did this and it has been wonderful. My cat, Mr. Quincy, likes to sit on my lap while I mix. Occasionally Mr. Q will swat at the mouse pointer on the screen thinking it is a fly [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I say go for it, but start small!

Catfish! perfect. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

I understood you, Bastiaan. I'm just thinking about all the possibilities for problems with having a cat wandering about. Any cat I am going to get is going to be fixed, so marking is not a problem, spraying may be...hmm.

The humane society has plenty of declawed cats available for adoption. I am not worried as much about scratching, just trying to think of what I may have to do upon getting a cat. Thanks for your help!

Still debating,

Ryan

Sometimes I come home from work and my cat is remixing my songs. She has great ears, and always gets the mix to sound better than I can. I think you should get a cat.
