One of Domenico Scarlatti's harpsichord sonatas is called "The Cat's Fugue," so nicknamed because the musical line that begins the fugue is so angular and odd that someone suggested it could've been "composed" by Scarlatti's cat walking up the keys.
Too bad Scarlatti didn't live long enough to find this cat on YouTube!
