Cats love music, too!

Since they were kittens, we always hum a tune whenever we carry them in our arms, like we often do with babies while lulling them to sleep. Even at the tender age of 3 months, I already noticed Wabbit look up, I mean literally looking up at me, searching for my gaze, whenever I sing a lullaby to him.

Several months later, singing the same tune would make him automatically close his eyes, and could even bring him to sleep right there in my arms (with him on my left arm, of course) while my right hand is busy writing a report.

Soon I began to notice that he also sleeps beside my laptop, with his head touching one of the speakers while there is background music being played on the computer.  Yes, he loves classical music!!!

While I was working on my report tonight, Wabbit suddenly jumped on my lap and faced the front side of the laptop. I was expecting him to rub his face on the edge of the computer, as he usually does. But I noticed that he was just sitting still, with his ears touching the front side of the laptop.

It took me a minute before I discovered Elton John's music coming out through the built-in speakers in the laptop.

Here's Wabbit while listening to EJ's
Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me.

And his look when the music stopped!
