When you leave the house, do you ever turn on some music to keep your cat company?
What kind do you choose? Tom Jones crooning "What's New Pussycat?" A ballad by Cat Stevens? Perhaps Al Stewart's "The Year of the Cat"?
Nonsense. Cats don't to want to hear humans singing about them, says composer and University of Maryland music professor David Teie.
Researchers at U.Md. and the University of Wisconsin have teamed up with Teie to make music that was more feline friendly.
