Cats and Audio
No, this will not be another monologue where I profess my undying love for Larry, our house cat, the furry little monster with a taste for human flesh and a weird fascination with the refrigerator. Larry is a music lover too. Ever since he was a kitten, we surrounded him with the sounds of Yes, Flying Lotus, and Dvorak, and now his long legs fumble into any room where music is playing. Larry will then sprawl himself out, close his eyes, and listen along.
Alright. I've broken my promise already by talking too much about Larry.
Here are a couple pictures from Reddit user whitekeys of his Adcom GFA 5802 amplifier after years of his feline friend using it as a heated chair.
After whitekeys cleaned his amp of cat hair, he said he heard improvements in the bass.
Larry tends to stay away from my Cambridge 540a integrated amplifier. Rather than comfort, Larry seeks excitement and dreams of becoming a DJ. I can't stop him from jumping up on my Rega P1 and pressing his paws against the spinning vinyl. Scratch-Scratch.
