Everyone knows that music can change your mood. That’s why people listen to all types of music depending on their mood, and that’s also why University of Maryland music professor David Teie and researchers at the University of Wisconsin have teamed up to make music that’s feline friendly.

Teie dreams of developing an app with different “purr instruments” to choose from.

“And so when the cat comes to your lap, you’d play one of these purrs for your cat as a kind of communication, so that it’s not just a one-way communication,” he says. “You can actually reach out and communicate with your kitty.”
