Cat Music!

Our good friend Maru sent me this article today about cat music.

Cat Music

Now don't get me wrong, cats DO like music. I have always played music for my hospitalized and boarding pets. Cats prefer soft jazz and classical. It keeps everyone calm. If a 'normal' rock station is played, tension seems to been seen more frequently.

Even better is those CD's that have water running or rainforest noises. I am a total believer in pets and music. *Scott won't let me have the radio on all day for my cats, just like he thinks they don't need a night light either ;)*

Cats, especially single cat households, even dogs, do very well with music or even the WEATHER CHANNEL! Why the weather channel? Well, it has nice music*elevator* and soft spoken people just talking. No action. It makes it SEEM like someone is home. This does help with anxiety.

So don't knock music for pets. I have personally seen it work.

My cats don't seem to notice music, maybe because I have it on most of the time, but I did have a cat that acted nervous whenever I played Bach, expecially if it was the Toccata and Fugue in D minor (understandable) or the Cello Suites. (go figure! cats are weird)

I have a Brookstone white noise machine, which has several choices of background noise. I can't play the rainforest one, because my cats run around the house looking for the birds. Drives 'em crazy.

Hm. Haven't done that in a long, long time....
