Cat Piano

"In order to raise the spirits of an Italian prince burdened by the cares of his position, a musician created for him a cat piano. The musician selected cats whose natural voices were at different pitches and arranged them in cages side by side, so that when a key on the piano was depressed, a mechanism drove a sharp spike into the appropriate cat’s tail. The result was a melody of meows that became more vigorous as the cats became more desperate. Who could not help but laugh at such music? Thus was the prince raised from his melancholy." - link

Ahh, Vetrivious, what shall I do today? Hmm, cats you say? Scratching at our ceramic pots in our garden? MESSING WITH MY AZALEAS?! That just angers me, maybe I shall take those CATS and MAKE A PIANO OUT OF THEM?! Yes, it's brilliant. Go, now, leave me be in my workshop of horrors.
