Jennie Press (BM ’01, MM ’03, Violin) wrote and illustrated a book entitled “The Miserable Tales of Duster the Cat” which is available for purchase online. Duster is a real cat who Press adopted in her third year at Peabody, and who many fellow Peabody students knew and loved. Press was a student of Victor Danchenko and currently is the second assistant concertmaster of the Vancouver Symphony in British Columbia. The Miserable Tales of Duster the Cat are some of the most horrible stories of feline misbehaviors and misadventures ever to be put to rhyme. Sadly, these tales are all based on actual events in the life of a real cat, Duster.
