Critics

Posted by Tom Smith on Sunday, December 15, 2013

This morning I sat on my back steps to practice. I was just warming up when a neighborhood tomcat walked up and sat right in front of me. I didn't pay too much attention until peripherally I noticed he had stood up and was facing away from me, and an instant after that he was starting to pee on my left leg. I took a swipe at him with my right foot, I saved myself from the brunt of it, but he still got me a little bit. No tip is one thing, but I think that was a little harsh. Besides, I was just warming up. JMO

Maybe not a criticism, maybe he was "marking" you as one of his friends and he liked your picking.

I think in cat world that's a performing contract. He just marked you as one of his artists now. Same place, same gig tomorrow. ;-)

Could be he was just letting you know he had those tunes trademarked.

Oh, crap. I didn't think of it that way. Maybe it just a cultrual difference. Now I feel bad at having rejected his friend request so rudely. I'm not sure how to handle the situation in the future. I don't want to be mean, but I prefer compliments expressed differently. How do I explain that to a cat?
If it was an ASCAP cat (ASCAT?), I just may return the favor if he returns.

Don't know about "lucky", but I guess I could have been more unlucky ... :)

Hi Tom. You must have a Water pistol beside you....... When my wife see our cats climbing on the bird boxes, to catch the birds, she gives theme a shot of Water....Then they hop Down, and Wonder from where the Water comes.

No offense intended, but maybe he mistook your practicing for another tomcat caterwauling, and just wanted to let you know you was trespassing in his 'hood.' My claim to fame is that our sheep no longer stampede when I play on the verandah . . . Guess that's not saying a lot, but at least they don't try to pee on me!

That would be an easy mistake to make, I suppose. The "indoor" cats seem to like (tolerate) my playing, but this outside cat believes he owns the yard and perhaps has different musical tastes. I'm glad you don't have the same problem with sheep. I've never been peed on by a sheep, but it sounds like it would be worse...

I guess I should be more gracious in accepting his compliment. :)
