Major record label deal made for “Music for Cats”

(WFLA) — Universal Music released the first ever major label deal for music aimed at animals rather than humans.

It’s called “Music for Cats,” which includes five cat-friendly compositions with a unique collection of sounds and classical music. The album has made it to number one on the iTunes classical music chart.

Composer David Teie, a cellist with America’s National Symphony Orchestra, originally came up with the theory every species of mammal has an intuitive biological response to sounds present in their early development.

Specifically for felines, sounds such as purring are incorporated into Teie’s music. He said hopes this type of music can help enrich the lives of animals in captivity.

Despite being allergic to cats, Teie went to a cat cafe in London to try his music out on a live crowd.

Teie said he is pleased with the reaction he’s received about his music from cats and their human owners.
