If you’re into guitars, you’ll be pleased to know that April is officially recognized as International Guitar Month. The purpose of this special month is to encourage music lovers to pick up a guitar and start strumming along to their favorite anthems.

But over in the social media world, the occasion is being co-opted by cats, who have decided to interact with their owners’ amps in a very feline way.

Check out these five entertaining cases of a little something called “cats on amps” in honor or International Guitar Month.

Here’s a great example of repurposing something in a feline-friendly fashion. Over at the Allred Guitars store in Phoenix, amplifiers are being hollowed out and turned into stylish cat beds!
