Meet Rémila, the lovely foster cat that Esther Abrami has.
Their wholesome connection strikes all the right notes.
Abrami is a professional violinist from France, where she tries her best to practice a few hours every day. Unfortunately, Abrami’s passion for playing music came into conflict with the kitten’s favorite pastime.
Rémila, you see, loves to cuddle in her foster mom’s lap — and Abrami typically plays the violin standing up.
Rémila would sob at Abrami’s feet as she rose to rehearse.
She would lie down on my lap as I attempted to practice sitting down, Abrami told The Dodo. But I can’t practice sitting down all the time.
Abrami came up with a brilliant solution to this conundrum to keep them both content.
“I had the idea of having a little bag in which I could put her in and have around my waist,” Abrami said. “Never did I think she would absolutely love hanging in there!”
But as soon as Abrami placed her foster cat into that repurposed fanny pack — now a proper kitten pouch — Rémila happily settled right in.
And now, when Abrami practices violin, Rémila has the coziest seat in the house:
With that, Abrami can play to her heart’s content, much to Rémila’s delight.
“I realized she absolutely loves music! I can literally practice for an hour without her moving from the bag,” she said. “To know she enjoys my music has created a really special bond between us.”
All parties are pleased as a result of Abrami’s solution, but there is one unexpected, albeit cute, minor drawback.
“It definitely makes my practice session more enjoyable, although I sometimes find it hard to concentrate seeing how cute she is sleeping in the bag,” Abrami said.
