    I agree it looks to be "cat scratch fever", but those rat-fur covered cabs can get to looking pretty...uhmm...ratty on their own, without feline intervention.

    OTOH, I got a first gen Fender Rumble 100 for $70 because the original owner's cat had worked it over some...on a stage, one can't even tell it -- what little damage actually shows looks to be regular ol' road wear. Of course, that's not anything like the nastiness of this particular cab.

    Asking $450 for that cab. The owner is as nutty as the cat.

    That's the best kind of cat: stuffed.

    I won't give up cats, but I had no problem parting with my one and only rat fur cab a couple years back

    My wife talked me into a covid kitty. She is growing up to be a total hell cat. I have to look over my shoulder constantly as she jumps on my back all the time. She's got seven front toes and claws too. She is all black so she is "cloaked" until the attack has commenced. I won't let her anywhere near anything I love..

    You know what, my cat is pretty chill around musical equipment. I’m not even sure I’ve seen her brush up against the basses or amp to scratch her neck, like she does with literally anything else with any semblance of an edge. The basses are also kept right next to one of her favorite windows.

    Good, Queenie.

    I assume I'll go on the ASPCA watchlist for saying this...

    But I'd have no problem parting out a cat that did that to one of my cabs.

    How old? In my experience, they're only bad from 6-12 months until 2-3 years. All itter bitter kitters are different, of course. Have you considered glue-on toe caps?

    My cats loved my Epifani. What do you expect when you use rat fur? Might as well sprinkle the cab with catnip.

    Oona is 4 months old. We have tried the claw caps but she loses them in a matter of days and they are a pita to put on her. This cat has six toes on each of her back and seven on each of her front. She is a killing machine! To be fair she only chews and jumps on me tho... I am sure I will make it onto Jackson Galaxy's My Cat From Hell some day! What's worse is this cat loves me and me only. She is in my lap or on my shoulder all day. I'd post pics but I don't know how.

    I got lucky, my cats only used my cabs as beds. So i had cat fur with the rat fur.
