Music For Cats Becomes a Reality

I wrote about the Music For Cats project about 6 months ago, but now it's a lot closer to reality, thanks to a Kickstarter campaign.

Just to review, most of us make music for our fellow humans, but David Teie, a soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra, wanted to create something especially for our feline friends.

David teamed up with some animal behavioral scientists from the University of Wisconsin to develop Music For Cats, a series of recordings specifically created for, you guessed it, cats.

The tracks are specifically designed to make cats relax and go a step beyond how they respond to human music (which does affect many young cats).

The Kickstarter campaign to raise $20,000 to produce an album of cat music (6 tracks of 10 minutes each) blew past that goal and is now at almost $193k, but there's still a few days left if you want to get in on it.

In the meantime, here's the explanation below. By the way, one of my cats was particularly interested when the video played.

Interesting topic, thanks Bobby. Naturally this is coming from one cat lover to another (we've rescued three since 2011 - Jexie, Billy and Charlie).

Fascinating creatures =^..^=
