So it turns out that cats are actually great listeners, especially when it comes to live music.
In a video uploaded to YouTube by Sami Hussein, a street performer in Malaysia is playing guitar when four tiny kittens take a seat and become the perfect audience.
They sit right at his feet and are entranced by the song he’s singing.
And their little heads are craned back and tilting along with their amazement. The singer even smiles as he acknowledges his unique crowd of listeners.
Does he have catnip in his pocket? Does he have a cat at home that the kittens can smell on his jeans?
Or are they just big music fans in tiny, furry bodies?
Who knows. And who cares? It’s endlessly cute.
