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.
