Meow-sic to our ears

Application Station“Cat Piano” isn’t just an app — it’s a lifestyle.

Haven’t you ever wanted a keyboard that emulates different cat noises on your iPhone? I sure have, and I’m here to tell you it’s free on the app store.

To be clear, it’s called “Cat Piano Jr for iPad,” and it gives you the taste of the full version with three cat noises. The noises are Furball, House Cat and, of course, Angelic Meow.

Furball really exemplifies the true essence of a whiny cat that is hungry or is stuck underneath the sofa again. It reminds me of my childhood.

Next is House Cat, which I believe to be a more philosophical noise. It’s tone is slightly deeper, giving it a hint of skepticism, as if the cat is stating “I meow, therefore I am.” It’s thought provoking and nonetheless stimulating to the enlightened consciousness.

The “Cat Piano Jr for iPad” trial ends with its last noise, Angelic Meow. This noise in particular stuck out to me for its very foreign tone, like a cat who accidentally got sent to space and learned to send a vocal transmission to Earth singing, “I miss the Earth so much, I miss my wife. It’s lonely out in space on such a timeless flight … I’m a rocket cat, a rocket cat, giving myself a bath up here alone.”

With that being said, I think it’s going to be a long, long time before we find such a great app that can live up to “Cat Piano Jr for iPad’s” standards. It’s great for kids, cats, dogs, boredom and loneliness.

The full app, “Cat Piano Concerto,” is there for even more cat noises for only 99 cents. As it states in the details of the app, “it’s like having a sack of angry cats – in your pocket.”

From the lowest note to the highest, it’s guaranteed to make you giggle and have people questioning why your phone is making cat noises in public.
