|What goes on in my house during rehearsal time

So ... I'm working on the librarian project. And upstairs trillian_stars is rehearsing for Macbeth, and Milla, our ancient, toothless cat is perched upon the bookshelf like a vulture, staring at her like an unpleasant audience filled with distempered old people and helping her rehearse by occasionally shrieking like she's got her leg caught in a car door.
So, from downstairs I hear this:
Lady McStars: What beast was't, then, that made you break this enterprise to me?
Lady McStars: When you durst do it, then you were a man! And, to be more than what you were, you would
Be so much more the man!
Lady McStars: Nor time nor place did then adhere, and yet you would make both!
Milla: MARRARARAAAROOOORRRRROAOOOOOOW!! MARRARARRRRRROAOOOOOOW!! MAAARRRRRAAARRROOWW!!!
Lady McStars: They have made themselves ... and that their fitness now does unmake you.
THUMP!! [Books fall from shelf.]

Awww kitty XD That's hilarious!!!
Is Milla auditioning for a walk on role?
(She probably thinks McStars is also the casting dirctor.)
Time to get the actual casting director involved?

HAHA! I guess it's always wise to rehearse before a difficult audience, though maybe those are cries of approval. This makes me think of my old, lamented friend Matilda Catt, who lived to be something like 21 or 22 (we were never sure, she appeared in our backyard one day…) and would bellow loudly for food, attention, or just to be ordering someone around. When she was particularly annoyed at the lack of service around here, she'd make sounds like an outraged bobcat. I'm glad you folks have a wonderful old cat to give you orders.
I hope that someday Hex grows up to be that cat. She used to practice vulture pose over the bunny... and fall asleep.
I've learned that Kitty will come and try to smother me (be closed to me?) whenever I open my mouth and make noises with it. So, when I used to practice theater stuff and was sitting or lying down, she would come try to sit on my face or neck. She does the same thing if I'm singing or talking on the phone.
Kitties make bad audiences.
