In another stop in an “up-and-coming market” and all was pretty normal in our load in, when our electricians went with the venue to do the power tie in. The power tie in was located in the floor in the middle of what would become our backstage warm up area.
The venue electrician slid the metal plate covering the cables out of the way to reveal, Fluffy; a furry cat frozen in a socked position. Apparently Fluffy had snuck in and then decided to chew on a nice live cable and that is where Fluffy remained.
The venue electrician said not to worry, tied-in our feeder cable and put the metal plate back over the cables. Leaving Fluffy untouched. Only when I arrived and threw a fit backstage did the venue consider removing the remains.
