Feline Friday #18: 06 May 2016

The world of pop music is rather fickle, judging from the many different acts that goes from superstardom during my schooling years to obscurity in my early twenties when I started working. The life of boy bands and girl bands are even shorter, if you would actually look at Spice Girls as an example. They used to be that one thing everyone talked about in school, but now, mention Spice Girls and half the people in the group you are chatting to will just cringe right where they stand or sit.

However, cat-pop boy bands might just save the world's boy bands and girls bands from fading into complete oblivion!!

These 5 cats are the cat-version of popular K-pop boy band SHINee, known as SHINyan. The cat-pop boy band is comprised of: MINONyan (named after Minho), TEAMINyan (named after Taemin), JONGNyan (named after Jonghyun), ONEWNyan (named after Onew and is the leader of SHINyan) and lastly KEYNyan (named after Key).

The music was mixed specifically to attract the attention of real cats — according to the record label, they were able to get six cats (out of six) to “look around” in testing. In addition to the meows you can clearly hear in the song, samples of paper bags crinkling are included as well as high-pitched sounds out of human range that cats should be able to hear have been mixed in at at 180 bpm. They claim these sounds will put your cat in a good mood.

If you have a feline at home, be sure to try playing this song for your kitty and see how it responds! We should note that smartphone speakers may not be able to reproduce the high-pitched frequencies, so you may need to bust out a pair of quality speakers to see any results.
