So, Scotty the Cat. Scotty the Cat… he had many, many, many specific things that were written for him to do. There were all these things he was supposed to look at and jump up on and… Scotty was great, but I gave up on that 5 or 7 minutes into the first day. We would have closed rehearsals where we’d bring the cat and we’d say ‘okay, so what would Scotty do here? He’d probably be over here on this chair watching what’s going on’ and we’d put Scotty in his chair and whatever he ended up sort of doing first, that’s what we would rehearse the scene around and… he was great. He was great every time. If you don’t expect cats to do something, they’ll usually give you a very cat-like response.

Just found this and thought it was pretty interesting, Neil Patrick Harris, Lena Hall and Tits of Clay perform Tear Me Down for the first time in front of an audience
