The Cat's Mee-OOOOW!!!

I'm of mixed opinion about this: Kircher's Cat Piano, the invention of a 17th Century Jesuit scholar with an apparent sadistic streak and too much time on his hands. Yes, it's cruel and yes it's pointless, but at the same time....well they are cats after all......

I think some enterprising composer should write a duet for this instrument and Arthur Ewing's Mouse Organ:

Yips! to Lynn S.

In The Adventures of Baron Munchausen there's a scene with the sultan who has one of them pianos. Instead of kitties he's got people in it.
