I could not finish watching this because I was laughing so hard I was choking.

2nd movement has 80% more kittens.

But the cow is the star of the first movement.

Bless you for this.

My two-year-old is crazy for videos of cows right now; I wonder what she'll think of this.

I am weeping and wheezing with laughter to the extent that my husband took off his noise-canceling headphones and came over to see what was wrong with me. This is delightful. Thank you, ferret branca!

I really should have also linked to Bach's Cello Suite No. 1.

I didn't realize I needed to hear Gymnopédie No. 1 again at this point in my life (way, way past the point I had to learn it during piano lessons) as performed by cattle and sheep and cats. Apparently I did. Thanks.

This is brilliant. The Bach Cello Suit No 1 is also very nice. (The others are good too.) There's a lot of fun stuff on the guy's youtube channel, as well as some very nice straightfoward music. I've found a new musician to pay attention to. Thanks!

Someone who isn't me should spend the next two weeks creating a fully automated version of this. Unless this guy has already done so.

I would like a version where I can play at a keyboard and have it play cat sounds. (If I were a different kind of programmer I'd do it myself.)

A set of selected cat videos and some midi-linked software that plays them in real time to a keyboard is a fun idea. I'm not sure I'm willing to build it. . . but, I hope someone else does.

So fun.
