My Cat ate my Score

We've all heard the excuse "My dog ate my homework" maybe even used it, but the score to the new sequel to Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom was destroyed by his new kitten. I find it amusing that the creator of Cats had his score erased by a kitten. Goes to show you should backup, backup, backup on any type of computer!

After putting felines in the spotlight for nearly two decades, one would think the furry creatures would have more respect for Cats composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.

London's Daily Mail reports that Lloyd Webber's new kitten Otto has managed to destroy the music he has penned for the upcoming sequel to The Phantom of the Opera. The six-month-old cat somehow climbed into the frame of Lloyd Webber's digital Clavinova piano, which features a built-in computer.
