WATCH: Violinist finds cute way to stop foster kitten crying when she practices

Esther Abrami's kitten didn't like being alone and would cry when she played her violin, but the musician found a clever way to stop her feline friend's interruptions.

Esther is a professional classical violinist from France. She tries to practice her music each day, but her foster kitten Rémila isn’t quite so keen.

Rémila loves nothing more than cuddling in Esther's lap, but Esther can't always sit down to play. When she would try to put Rémila down on her own, Rémila would get upset and cry.

Foster kitten

Rémila came to live with foster mum Esther after her owners abandoned her. The kitten weighed less than 400 grams and suffered from breathing problems from living on the streets. But she soon settled into her temporary home with Esther and has become her little furry shadow and refuses to be left alone.

Esther realised she needed to come up with a way that would allow her to practice while still keeping the kitten close to her. She needed something that the kitten could sit in safely while she played.

Cat in the bag

She found the perfect solution, a bum bag! The little pouch around her waist means that Rémila can snuggle in close to Esther while Esther doesn't have to miss out on any practice time. Rémila is happy to sit for an hour in the bag, staring up adorably at Esther as she plays.

There is one problem, though. While Esther enjoys practising her music with her feline friend close by, she does find it distracting to look down and see how adorable and cosy Rémila looks in her little sleeping bag!

Check out the adorable clip below:


She cries when I leave her on the floor so here’s what I did 😂 1. Start of my practise session 😻 2. End of session 😴 - Rémila’s story: This kitten was abandoned but thankfully rescued by the cat shelter @association_feli_cite As a host family I took care of her for the past week. When she arrived she was less than 400 grams, scared and had breathing issues from having stayed outside for several days. I’m happy to say that after 7 days of milk bottles and constant cuddles Rémila has now become one of the friendliest cats I’ve ever seen. She follows me absolutely everywhere around the house and refuses to be left alone on the floor. She is always either on my laps or in her little bag around my waist! #AdoptDontShop
