Musical Feline: Is the Theremin the Next Great Cat Toy?

Posted by Paige Cerulli

Can you imagine if your cat had a theremin to play with in the house? You'd never get a wink of sleep again!

We may have found the next great cat toy, and it allows your cat to make cat music at the same time. It's a musical instrument called the theremin, and evidently it is capable of absolutely captivating a cat with its sounds.

The theremin is a real musical instrument, believe it or not, and it creates various pitches depending on how you place your hands near it. It takes some serious skill to learn, and can be downright annoying if played by someone who doesn't know what they're doing.

Unfortunately, this cat is no musician, but he's totally entranced with the theremin. He's making his own music, and getting an abdominal workout as he spends most of the time sitting on his hind legs. Even though it might not be too much fun to listen to, this cat is having such a great time that we're tempted to go out and buy a theremin for our own cats.

Take a look!

So, what do you think? Will pet stores be stocking up on the theremin? Think cat owners everywhere will be seeking out this toy?

Well, we don't really think so, either. Mainly because you'd never sleep, and you know your cat would play with this delightful toy at 3 a.m.
