Might piss off your cat though, Rob! It won't be able to have a beer party at night when you are sleeping.
Ha! Yeah, it's never happened, but I worry it could. She goes running around, jumping on bookcases and anything else, chasing gnats, or shadows, or who knows what, at night. She could jump up and down off the keezer and brush against the tap handle, I imagine. Once, when I still had carboys, one was draining upside down. She was chasing a wasp (according to my CSI: Basement
investigation,) and the result was a shattered carboy. The wasp ended up cut in half in the wreckage. The cat jumped clear and was spared being cut or stung -- very lucky. The good thing is, she'd never mess with the tap at night intentionally. Pure mischief without an audience holds no attraction.
