According to www.suite101.com’s Jennifer Copley, “Austrian scientists have found that cats appear to prefer instruments such as the oboe and deep bass, as well as male voice choirs.”

I read it here, and I’m really puzzled about the oboe connection. If cats prefer “deep tones to high-pitched notes” how the heck does oboe belong there?

But whatever. It’s always nice to be liked. Even by the animals.

You can start the celebration nice and early. Ready? Set? Go!

… with the Muppets

… with fireworks

In New York …

or in Disneyland …

or in Washington, D.C. with a live symphony orchestra (an orchestra sounds so much better when they don’t use a dead orchestra)
