Get your grass blower. Take the cover off the amp. Stand back about 10 feet. And blow the crap out... Wait a minute! Are you one of the cats?

The cat hair (unless they're very clever and removed the cover themselves) got in through the vent slots. Have you tried the vacuum cleaner with the little dusting brush attachment to get it out the same way?

Buy a can of computer Dust-Off ($7). Unplug the unit and take it to the basement, garage, front porch...what ever. Take the cover off and blow the dust and whatever lurks out. Repeat one a year.

Hirsute felines are devilishly, insidiously clever . . .

What, no one has said that amplifier can really PURR! I know I just stumbled into WP territory. He has got to have a picture for this. Or does it just have a "furry" sound?

It's Friday and I am old.

If the PUSSYcat hair bothers you, get a shaved PUSSYcat, those hairless ones. Surely you have seen the hairless PUSSYcats i refer to.

Yup- I understand your concern! I have three cats, 2 shorthairs and one cuddly long hair! I have got into the habit of using a vac with brush tool, on all the vents on the cases of all my equipment, weekly as it helps to stop build up inside. Now and the- I will also take the covers off and hold the nozzle closer- but not touching anything, to remove the fuzz and dust that we all suffer over time!
(Just never use brushes on components as you may buid static and damage the bits)!
