Music Designed Especially for Cats: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Ever been playing your cat Drunk In Love and been disappointed by its lack of hollering and swooping dance moves? That`s because you`re playing it music that sounds nice to humans, not cats.


A team of scientists have written music that they found most cats respond to, a `little like sonic catnip` and using tempos and melodies originating from purrs and suckling.

In a study published in the journal Applied Animal Behavioural Science, domestic cats did not respond when played human music, but upon hearing the specially-produced `cat songs` became excited and started approaching the speakers and rubbing their scent glands on them."

When my dog rides shotgun with me she`s bopping her head up and down and singing along with the radio. Mandy`s musical tastes are similar to mine: Oldies and R & B.

My two cats, on the other hand, don`t seem to be very musically inclined; they ignore the radio as much as they ignore me.

It turns out that felines are as picky about their music as they are about their food; the caterwauling of Miley Cyrus or any other pop star is cacophony to their tender ears.

But the spoiled devils love music that`s produced especially for them.

Play the video at the bottom of this page for your kitty, as see if it will soothe the savage beast.
