Tim Collins is the boss at home, right? He pays for housing, utilities, food and kitty litter. And to do that, he has to practice his art of being a world-class vibraphone player.

No surprise, but his cat doesn't care one bit. As Collins plays some excellent runs on the vibraphone, the kitty jumps, sits and walks on the instrument at will. Collins' attempts to distract the cat fail, but it's sweet to see his patience for the practice-interrupting pet.
