Street performing is rarely, if ever, an occupation that pays well, but a musician in Malaysia discovered that sometimes riches are found not in the form of money, but in the pure joy of knowing that animals deeply connect with your creation.

This was the case in Pangkor, Malaysia as a local guitarist was having a terrible night in attracting tips from the passersby of the evening. He was about to call it a night when four 3-month-old kittens arrived and planted themselves at his feet. Not wanting to leave an audience disappointed, he stayed to play one final song for the benefit of his feline admirers.

As you watch the video, watch the rapt attention of the little ones. In fact, at one point of the song, you can see their heads moving in unison with the music!

After he completes his song, the musician kindly says “Terima kasih, semua!” (“Thanks, everybody” in Malay) to his assembled fans. If there was ever someone to be proclaimed a kitten whisperer, this gentleman fits the bill perfectly!
