So I went to my friend's child's first birthday party on saturday.
One of his gifts was a harmonica.
Sometime that day the child's father, D was playing the harmonica and their cat went completely nuts and started whacking at his face with his front paw.
This happened every time D picked up and began to play the harmonica.
So the BF and I went home from the party and decided to perform the harmonica/cat dynamic test on his kitty (who is named "Bunny", or sometimes "Killer", or occasionally "Gristle") to see what she did.
It seemed to scramble her brain too, and she ran around for a bit then went up to bf's head and bit it (gently). We were able to make her repeat this several times, simply by playing the harmonica.
So whats the deal here? Anyone know? is it all cats? If anyone feels like trying this, please let me know the results..
in the meantime.. meet Bunny/Killer/Gristle
Update: Apparantly this is a documented phenomenon - Here
And there is even a company which has tried to capitalize on this as a way to keep kitties off the keys Here
