The Cat Piano


Dr. Fong Say:

Poor kitties don't like spikes driven into their tails. What kind of sicko would get joy out of such cruelty? If this device could be made in such a way as to not hurt the cat then I would be all for it. What about it science? Can we make a humane cat piano for the 21st century?


"In order to raise the spirits of an Italian prince burdened by the cares of his position, a musician created for him a cat piano. The musician selected cats whose natural voices were at different pitches and arranged them in cages side by side, so that when a key on the piano was depressed, a mechanism drove a sharp spike into the appropriate cat’s tail. The result was a melody of meows that became more vigorous as the cats became more desperate. Who could not help but laugh at such music? Thus was the prince raised from his melancholy."

My great grandfather was a cat
tuner and tuned many church
cat organs. He suffered from
dementia and was finally put
in a mental institution, taking
this lost art with him.
