This Malaysian busker was about to call it a day, as not many people gathered to hear him sing. Just as he started to sing for fun, the cutest little audience showed up… A group of four 3-month-old kittens came to show their support!
Many of us like to occasionally stand by and listen to street performers for a few minutes, especially during holidays and weekends, as their music shares even more joy and happiness.
These performances, whether dancing, performing magic, or any other tricks, have been going on for ages, and the primary goal is to entertain the public in the hopes of getting some small change.
However, life as a street performer can be very lonely, and it’s even worse when no one stops to listen or even care to appreciate your performance through support and positive feedback.
Many people often ignore their efforts and talent, just like in the case of this Malaysian busker, who spent the whole night singing out loud and playing his guitar.
When he was about to call it a day, he got the cutest little audience after all.
Four 3-month-old kittens sat and listened to him and were the least and most supportive crowd he could have imagined.
These feline cuties sat in front of the busker without moving until the end of the show. Then, he thanked them for listening to him sing.
The whole incident was caught on camera by an unnamed person, who later shared the clip on social media.
The filmer later wrote online:
“My friend just finished his busking on that night, but not many people heard him sing. He was feeling upset, then he sits and relaxes and sings the song just for fun.”
“Suddenly, the kittens (3 months old) come and sit in front of him. It’s like [they] know his feeling and give him support.”
“The kittens are his audience till the end, and he thanked the kittens for watching his performance.”
The best part? The person who shared the video online wrote that at one point, the kittens started to bob their fuzzy little heads along with the beat!
The singer couldn’t believe what was happening, and he even started laughing half-way through the performance in disbelief.
Check out the video… so adorable!
According to researchers, cats are big fans of music. Pet Health Network explains that when kitties like a particular song, they’ll show their approval by either “purring, moving their head towards, or moving towards wherever the sound is coming from.”
