Minor problems aside, Nice find! I like this generation of Infinity speakers too.
Interesting trip to retrieve them and a very smooth sell getting the wife on board.
As for the cat, I'm with Kev. The fewer of their nine lives a cat has left decides how good it is (the more the better). The best way to tell if you have a good cat with lots of remaining lives is to put it in a canvas bag with a cinder block. Toss the bag in the river, lake or deep pond and see if the cat gets out. If it does then it's a good cat and you should keep it.
