Have you ever heard of a katzenklavier? I hadn’t.
The katzenklavier, or cat piano, is a terrible, TERRIBLE thing. It’s an 18th century instrument that “consists of a line of cats fixed in place with their tails stretched out underneath a keyboard. Nails would be placed under the keys, causing the cats to cry out in pain when a key was pressed. The cats would be arranged according to the natural tone of their voices.”
Horrible! The only cat-piano relationship should be that of Nora and her piano.
