Today, I bought a cat. Somehow that cat is now stuck inside my antique piano. I have to break the piano to get her out. FML
outthelabyrynth tells us more :
Okay, maybe break the piano was a bit of a drastic solution. It's really heavy and my dad got it as a gift from one of his patients, so I'm not really familiar with the thing. It's really old and out of tune, we do get it tuned once in a while, but it doesn't make any difference. We are trying to find someone who's interested in it, since we don't use it anymore, and for that reason we had placed the piano in a side part of the house. I'm a responsible cat owner and I know that when you get a new cat you have to let it get used to your house room by room. Unfortunately for us, it was the piano room... I still have no idea how she got in, since the piano is a really massive thing, no holes or stuff like that. We had to take of the front (which also happens when it gets tuned) to get her out, but she was completely fine and so was the piano, so, that turned out all right :) For those of you who were asking if I bought or adopted the cat, I meant bought. I really think adopting is better! But this cat species is hypo-allergic, and since my dad is allergic to cats, this was the only way we could get one. I've wanted a cat for whole my life and after 16 years, my dream came true, and everyone here loves our little kitty :) I laughed at all your musical kitty jokes, and thanks for all the advice!

@22, not necessarily. When I got my cat, he figured out very quickly how to open my kitchen drawers. He would open the lowest one, climb in, and then actually squeeze himself behind and UNDER the drawer. Then the drawer would close and of course he couldn't open it to get out so I would have to take out the entire drawer to let him out. So it's definitely possible that the cat got into the piano but didn't have a way of coming back out without help.

Some cats just can't figure things out.

Ex: my one cat doesn't understand how to use her new kitty litter box that has a flapping door. I put her in it and she just sat there meowing and crying because the dum-dum doesn't know to push it with her head. Now she pees on top of it through its filter vents!

Woah! Let's scale the puns down, Pleo! On a side note, no matter whose keyboard it is, whether Minor yours, I wouldn't break it open yet. There has to be another way to get the cat out so you and the keyboard can stay in harmony.

Sometimes I wonder what it'll be like, many years in the future, when people are looking through the archives of the internet and come across all of the puns in the comments in FML. Especially given how much the syntax of the English language changes from one generation to the next. Also, its 2 am and I have no friends.

That's not how cat traps work. After the cat trap is filled to capacity (20 or so cats typically) it must be pushed out a tall window onto a busy sidewalk and filmed in slow motion.

I was walking with a friend once and we passed a "free kittens" sign. He said "Wait. Is this redundant? There are kittens somewhere that AREN'T free?"

Antique pianos can be very expensive, depending on the maker and relative condition it's in. If it's an heirloom, it's practically priceless.
