Oh what a Week!!!!

Good evening all from a, well rested Queen Zara. You see, Alfa and I have been relaxing at our favourite Cat Hotel here in Howick. All these repairs have taken a toll on Alfa’s and my nerves and we really needed some time out. Ok….the real truth is, is that mummy and daddy went down to New Plymouth for the first New Zealand Classical Saxophone retreat and mummy and daddy did a Selmer workshop there. Again Alfa and I were not invited. A no cats aloud system was in place so we instead enjoyed the time away meeting other cats and letting them get to know me better. It was a thrill for them to meet me and also a chance to meet Alfa…..for those desperate enough. Alfa cried often while we were here because she missed her mummy. Such a mummy’s girl. We were looked after well and are both very happy J

This week was a short week, but wow it was a busy one. The week started with a sale of a mint condition YAS 275 Alto sax to our local Howick Music School. Then a Kawai Trumpet went to another school down south. Later on a gentleman arrive to try our Yamaha YSS475 Soprano Sax and bought it! He loved the tone and the way it played. Later that afternoon, and said again how happy he was with the soprano saxophone and the service he received. This made daddy very happy J.

On Friday a mum and dad and son came in to look at a trombone. Of course they came to look and try a couple of trombones we have in stock, and fell in love with a trombone that just arrived a couple of days ago from Japan. He made a great sound on the trombone and I was so surprised that he had only been learning for only one year! We were all really impressed. Last but not least to finish our Friday was the sale of a beautiful YCL350F Yamaha wooden clarinet. This clarinet like the trombone, both arrived this week and both were sold within just a couple of days after arriving. This week we also had a Yamaha cornet, and flute come in from Japan. I am sure they will find homes soon. Something special is arriving next week from France, but that is for Alfa to share…..

Well its nice to have a break, but it’s good to be home. Alfa and I slept in different areas which was nice for me, but a little hard for Alfa. Tonight it’s back to our usual routine and both sleeping in the downstair’s bathroom. She kept most of us awake on Friday and Saturday night talking about life at DR TOOT. All the cats already know about DR TOOT as our blog details are on the human’s notice board at the cattery. Time to say good night until next time. Have a PURRRRRFECTTTT Week EVERYBODY!!!!
