    "
    The first step in making cat music is "to evaluate music in the context of the animal's sensory system," he says. Cats, for example, vocalize one octave higher than people, "So it's vital to get the pitch right. Then we tried to create music that would have a tempo that was appealing to cats." One sample was based on the tempo of purring, the other on the sucking sound made during nursing."

    My cat (she's gone now) used to love it when I played guitar or bass. As soon as I would grab my guitar she would start purring loudly and sit by my side the whole time. Sometimes she would get excited and be a real pest, trying to rub on the strings or my picking hand. She was a great cat.
