The biggest problem (or so I thought) was going to be the fact
that the resident felines had liberally marked their shellac
territory. Oddly enough, the only problem I have seen so far
is that discs, sleeves and boxes are, shall we say, odiferous...
even a few records that I found in sleeves damp with...well,
you know...seemed not to have suffered any permanent damage!
It does seem to have rendered a number of labels illegible,
I didn't exactly to make this test, but I thought I might
share the results (in case anyone is offered old 78's by
a cat-loving little old lady?)...
