    A Pawful of Dollars

    Our cat loves spaghetti westerns. I'm sure of it. She has to, because I don't know how else to explain her behavior while watching them. When I saw A Fistful of Dollars a few months ago, she got on her hind legs and pawed at the base of the TV during the opening credits.

    At the time, I thought it was a bit strange. But meh, Simone's certainly done stranger things. But she never did it again... Until now.

    Last night I watched For a Few Dollars More and sure enough she was at it again, pawing at the TV. This time I figured she was reacting to the whistles and clatter of Ennio Morricone's theme music. But when I played it on the stereo, she completely ignored it. So she must just be a big fan of Sergio Leone's films. That's the only way to explain it.

    I'll have to rent The Good, the Bad and the Ugly next to see if she's behaving this way because of a) the film score, b) Clint Eastwood, c) the explosive gunfire, or d) a disturbing mix of all three.
