Check Out These Totally Rockin’ Cats Lounging on Amps


The other day, a cat-owning colleague sent me a link to an Instagram account titled CatsOnAmps. Wonderfully, the feed served up exactly what its name promised, as a cascade of kitties perched on top of various new and vintage amps lit up my phone’s screen.

In the interests of heightening your cat and music mixing pleasure, here are the most essential pics from the trend.

Introducing the Super Champ

The petition to make Elly the official new mascot of Fender begins now!

All-action Jinx

Captured in full throttle, Jinx the lynx is totally getting into the groove here. Well, either that or he’s about to yawn his way into nap mode.

Push it to the limit

This aspiring rockstar cat dude is literally trying to turn it up to 11. Respect his endeavor.

Long-haired, don’t care

These distinguished fluffballs are said to only ever perch on Verellen-brand amps. It’s the only civilized way to lounge.

It ain’t all good

We’ve got a classic case of good cat/bad cat going on here. Pick your side wisely.

Light it up

Demonic, lazer-eyed cats make for the best type of light show, right?

Going back to the essence

I like to think that back in ancient Egyptian times the Sphynx was saluted for his innate musical ability.

Such great heights

Let’s all take a moment to marvel at this most musical of cat towers.

Orange you glad …

The levels of orangeness on display here are quite outstanding. The kitty’s perturbed facial expression seals the deal.


This dinky dynamic duo was quite the hit on the live circuit.


Never let it be said that cats are not serious about their napping. This guy, named Neil, won’t let the little matter of an Ampeg SVT get in the way of his slumber.
