Nick Cave narrates The Cat Piano and it's, predictably, both horrific and sublime

In this 2009 short film, Nick Cave plays the part of a writer, who resides in a city populated entirely by cats. Yep, that's weird, but it's Nick Cave, so it works.

When a madman starts snatching up the city's most musical residents, including Cave's muse, to give voice to his own dark symphony, Cave-Cat leads the rescue mission to bring the kidnapped kitties back home.

Named for an insidious musical instrument that dates back to the 1500s, The Cat Piano is just under nine minutes long. Watch it on your coffee break, or as part of your daily procrastination routine. It's got a cat that looks like Nick Cave! This alone makes the film more than worthwhile.
