Not by the *looks* of it, jd.
Unless you consider that cat on its back due to instant death and stuffing.

Hahah... Helen.
Is this going to be followed up by a "Dylan & Dogs" show?
"Gershwin & Gerbils..."?
LOVE it :lol:

Do they sell online, Andrew?
So TOTALLY fitting for me [certain age included] :D
Hi Elizabeth, that promotional item is not a poster, only a postcard, but I can send you one if you PM me your address. ;-)

Cheers,
Andrew :)

If LC is allergic to cats, it would be a cat-astrophe if he were to come into contact with one. Are there any cats allergic to LC I wonder?
:lol: :lol:

The thought has also just occurred to me, regarding references to cats in Leonard's music, perhaps we should probably consult his back catalogue. ;-)

Cheers,
Andrew :)

Many people don't know this, but the first version of a particular song was...

A Thousand Scratches Deep

And I found a pic of an early UH band member:

Played the mew's harp, i believe...

What exactly did you guys think "I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed" meant, anyway?

Left the band when Leonard first hired a violinist and he found out what fiddles are strung with...

From Wikipedia:
The word catgut may have been an abbreviation of the word "cattlegut". Alternatively, it may have derived by folk etymology from kitgut or kitstring—the word kit, meaning fiddle, having at some point been confused with the word kit for a young cat.[4]

Reminds me that about a year ago i posted a video in the 'old ideas ' section examining, jokingly , my cat's liking of leonard cohen's music . i had noticed that when i play recent live cohen and the uhtc he tends to sit peacefully and seems to listen , whereas when i play recent live Dylan he runs away .

The video is still there - ' a new perspective on come healing '
It attracted a few comments at the time - some liked it or at least found it cute and amusing :lol: --- some didn't ! :roll:

Anyway 12 months down the line my cat is still healthy and still seems to like leonard cohen ! A cool cat 8) 8)
