Six-year-old Stevie thats the moggie, by the way was found flea-bitten, suffering from worms and with both of his eyes missing.
Left abandoned in a garden, he was taken to the shelter where staff spotted his hankering for tinkling the ivories.
He now spends his time skipping across the keys and proving that piano playing is cool for cats whether feline or the American Motown legend in whose honour he was named.
Stevie seems to enjoy the sound of the piano and often jumps up on my lap while I play, said Beverley Street, deputy manager at the Wood Green shelter in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire.
He has ventured on to the piano a few times for a nose and a rather noisy play.
Vets are unsure if Stevies eyes were surgically removed or if he was born without them but the shelters staff believe he finds it therapeutic to hear the sounds made by his movements.
Because he has no sight Stevies other senses are so heightened. His hearing is amazing, said Ms Street.
Meanwhile, staff are looking for a permanent home for Stevie preferably one with a piano where he can continue to practice his licks.
what a precious cat! If he were in the states I would sure take him!
I’d even buy a piano.
I hearby volunteer to be his seeing eye cat and listen to his music!
Cheaper, in any case.
LOL... That’s me on the (night) job!
I think that’s a picture from a story about a blind piano playing cat. Don’t remember where I read about it.
Forget it. I just read the post. Got to get to bed, mind is slowly fading. Sorry.
*chuckle* Sweet dreams.
