Not sure what to make of this...

David Teie, a scientist and cellist in the US National Symphony Orchestra, raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through crowdfunding and sold 10,000 copies of his record independently.

He was then offered a deal with Universal Music and his album Music For Cats is set for release on 28 October.

Mr Teie said that the music was created based on his scientific theory that cats appreciate music through the sounds they hear as kittens, such as their mother's purr or birds chirping.

He told the Press Association: "Not all cats respond - one will go right over to the speaker and one will just walk out of the room.

"I like the idea that critical taste applies to cats too.

"But I've seen videos where cats nuzzle up to the speaker or even curl completely around it.

"Very excitable cats are completely calmed and formerly abused or feral cats tend to respond best."

The music is played at shelters, where Mr Teie says it can cut down the time it takes for a feral cat to interact with humans.

"It is communication in the cat's language, of acceptance and understanding and the comfort that goes along with that."

He added that, while reptiles "don't have the brain structures for it, all mammals are ripe for music".

A spokesman for Universal Music said they were "thrilled to be part of this world-first project and break into the massive untapped market of non-human music fans".

"The possibilities are endless for more species-specific 'Music For' albums - dogs and horses could all be on the cards."

Summer mentioned this earlier too:

I'm not convinced. The reasons they gave for determining what cats would like don't make sense to me:

Felines establish their sense of music through sounds heard after they're born – birds chirping, suckling for milk, their mother's purr.

You could say the same about humans. Hear birds chirping, suckling for milk etc when we're babies, but it doesn't mean we all like the cello.

I didn't think my cat would like DVD's made for cats and he really does though. I dunno.
