General InformationEdit

Fiddler and Keys are two musician cats, with Fiddler playing the violin and Keys playing piano. When they appear they are usually talking about music-related things or doing a musical number. They are a couple and also a resource for musical jokes in the story.

They are usually shown together, but each made a solo apperance once. Fiddler in Hey, It’s That Cat Again and Keys in First Things First. In a couple of one-shot strips, the duo has performed their own song compositions. They have not appeared in the comic for several years.


  • Fiddler's and Keys' genders are left unknown. Many believe Fiddler to be a girl and Keys a boy, but others believe otherwise. Anyway, both sides are arguably even, and decided to keep it non-exact until officially stated.
    • Although Rick did comment on Five Weeks Of Allowance Down The Drain that "Nobody claimed Fiddler looked female [...]" on Hey, It’s That Cat Again so is possible that Fiddler is the male.
    • Looking back at First Things First , Rick seemingly called Keys a male by saying "Keys is here to explain but we'll ignore his words coming from his word-hole because that's easier", though he may have been joking.
    • It's interesting to note that calico cats are mainly female, with males being a rare exception, further suggesting Fiddler's a female.
