While many people have rushed to adopt or foster cats during the current coronavirus pandemic, many cats are still stuck in shelters, waiting for a forever home. To calm these cats and acquaint them with the outside world, a London animal shelter has been playing sounds of nature along with ordinary noises like laughing and coughing.

The goal is to calm the cats so they’ll be comfortable hearing these sounds whenever they get adopted. So if you live near London and want to adopt a cat, get one already socialized to common nature and human noises.
