Cats have served as companions and muses for artists for centuries. And while we can usually see the results of this creative relationship in paintings, musicians also sometimes use their craft to glorify cats. One of his most humorous examples of this is his unique 19th-century opera of unknown origin called "Duetto buffo di due gatti". In English, it means "a funny duet for two cats." The charm of this performance is that all the lyrics are replaced with variations of Meow.

A YouTube video of two choirboys singing this upbeat opera has been viewed more than 2 million times. The cats take turns meowing to the accompaniment of the piano. Some are long and some are short, resembling real cats. If you watch the video, you can hear the audience laughing as they clearly enjoy the bizarre show.

It has not been confirmed who composed this cat duet, but some believe it was  Italian composer Gioachino Rossini, who wrote the comic opera The Barber of Seville and many other famous works. . Another theory is that the cat-inspired piece was composed by another musician, but is based on Rossini's 1816 opera Otello. Whatever its origins, it's safe to say that no musical can match it.
