  1. I first noticed my cat Marseille loved jazz was everytime I put the jazz station on the radio she would immediately come to the area of the radio and stay there. At first I thought it was music in general. It seems to be jazz music that she adores listening to. She changes her mood and will sit on her cat perch near the radio and listen for a couple hours. She does not respond to other styles of music like jazz.

  2. annnnnnnnd most important, name of the catmusic CD or artist in the description ???? Hello BBC are you guys journalists? if yes then where are all the sources ?

  3. When I noticed my female cat seemed to calm down every time I played Edith Piaf songs, I thought I was crazy. But the empiric evidence was overwhelming, and I'm really happy to confirm my hypothesis now ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. I like some of the science and theory in these videos and I of course like the cats and their enthusiastic owners, but I am a little annoyed by the lack of effort made to distinguish science from wishful speculation.

    Everything Betsy says seems of the latter category. Cats being visual learners, copying behavior, and the piano being used to gain attention — none of that is (literally) evident. Fortunately, the next video goes into actual scientific theory for the behavior, but, for the education of the viewers, it wouldn't hurt to be a bit more critical in the presentation of the material in my opinion.

  5. I had a cat, Maya, who's now departed, who simply loved opera. She'd sit in front of the hifi for hours on end and listen attentively to my CDs. Other cats I've had were not that musical.

  6. where's the control for this experiment? maybe the cat's just start to relax as time passes in the room.

    also the word copycat didn't come from cats imitating behaviour, cats don't usually do that. cat was used as slang in 17th century America to mean a person with poor qualities, e.g. copy-cat.

  7. That woman was wrong about the origin of the word copycat. "Unlike monkeys and parrots, cats aren't actually known for imitative behavior, but the term is somewhat logical since "cat" has been an insult since the medieval period".
