It's the purrrrfect sound to cats' ears.

Literally, Universal Music Group is creating an album just for cats.

A music professor, David Teie, at University of Maryland, created a Kickstarter, to help him produce the songs to soothe the furry felines.

The theory and drive behind his project is based on his findings from the relationship of music and humans. He extended this to cats.

Whereas humans have an emotional reaction to music due to their mother's heartbeat, cats learn their sense of music outside of the womb with sounds heard after they are born.

Published in the journal Applied Animal Behavior Science, it's proven cats actually love music just for them.

His dream, he told the Guardian, ""I am hoping that in a hundred years from now people will have to be taught that music was once only for humans. "If you really look into it, what's silly is the idea that only one species could have music available for it.""

The songs on the album will include "purring and suckling nosies" and Teie on his cello with other musicians from the US National Symphony Orchestra.
