So a group of researchers made some music designed for cats to enjoy. This one seemed to get Bimmy’s attention. #cats #catsofinstagram #musicforcats

Beats and beats and beats and beats on an icy March night #beats #music #samples #musicwithcats #musicforcats

Played cat-centric music for the first time and my cats woke up and started paying attention. They like “Spook’s Ditty” because of the chirping birds. They’re now wide awake and hyper…. Hmmm… I thought this was supposed to calm them down! 🙀😁😜 #musicforcats #teyusmusic #davidteie #cat #catsofinstagram #excellent_cats #gato #gatonegro #gatosdeinstagram #blackcat #HAPPY_PET #instagood #instameows #jj_cats #kitty #kuroneko #neko #pets #puspin

ウィスコンシン大学の心理学の研究チームが、猫の喜ぶ音楽を開発した。  この音楽は、猫同士がコミュニケーションに用いる周波数帯にビートを合わせたもので、テンポは猫が喉をゴロゴロ鳴らしたときのものに合わせているという。

 今週Applied Animal Behavioral Science誌に掲載された論文によると、研究チームがこれらの音楽を聴かせる実験を47匹の猫を対象に行ったところ、猫らはこの音楽を人間向けの音楽よりも好むことが確認された。実験において、この音楽が再生されているときはスピーカーに頭を擦り付ける猫が多くいたのに対し、バッハの「G線上のアリア」やフォーレの「エレジー」の場合は猫は無反応であった。

i tried the musicforcats thing and

cat #1: licked himself throughout the whole three songs. probably didnt notice anything was playing

cat #2: tried to eat a wire. she managed to sit down and listen to the third song but did not enjoy having to sit still

cat #3 will be judged when he says sorry for emptying the bins

Feline Airs:  The purr is to cats what the moan is to humans.  It can express pleasure or pain, but most importantly, it draws sympathetic emotions from the listener.  The timing and cyclic rhythms of purrs are remarkably consistent among all breeds of domestic cats - the Feline Air is based on the pulses of the purr.
