Subject: Cat preferences, muddy or otherwise
From: sian, west wales
Date: 11 Sep 02 - 05:40 AM

Just saw this in the Globe & Mail online:

"What kinds of music should I buy for my cat? A team of Austrian animal psychologists has observed that cats, which have rapid pulses, appreciate music with a fast beat and prefer deep rather than high-pitched tones. They seem to love male-voiced choirs, the double bass and the oboe, but detest violins, writes Clare Chapman in The Sunday Times of London. For five days at a time, the test cats were filmed. If they liked what they heard, they moved closer to the speakers; if they didn't, they would stand still or move away."

I'm not much of a cat-person m'self, but it strikes me that cats may have cause (call it a 'gut' feeling) to take against certain instruments ...

When I play music at my friends house, she has 2 Oriental and 1 Siamese, the cats seem to react very little to the music itself but love the movement involved in playing the Cello and Violin, however they do tend to disappear to the bedroom when both sets of bagpipes start up!!! After a few minutes a couple of curious faces can be seen peering round the corner wondering which of them is being strangled! (I will be the one being strangled if my piper friends read this!!! They get very sensative and defensive about the kind of noise((oops, sorry, music)) they make for some reason:-})

I had a small dog once who used to like to lie as close as possible to the pedals of our organ. (Made life difficult) Another dog - border collie - liked to stand with the small hairs of his upper 'lip' only just touching the sound-box-bit (whatever that's called) of a concert harp. He'd stand as still as stone ... I never got the impression he actually enjoyed it; he seemed puzzled more than anything.

My cat loves the sound of the violin. When I am playing she jumps into the open case and purrs away. If the case is closed then she is sat as close to me as possible. I have a wooden flute and when I play that she walks around the room making a loud low wailing noise like she is in pain.......she might well be!!! If I put a CD of chart music or dance music on the first person the leave the room is my boyfriend followed very closely by the cat!!!

Hard to say... my older cat, Chester, when he was alive, loved Beethoven and Bach (and would roll over on the carpet blissfully). My younger cat, Arthur, prefers Wagner (and races around the house like a Valkyrie when he hears it!).

But both were quite attracted by my tape of the "Jingle Cats", and both kept trying to get inside my boom-box where they thought those singing cats must be!

*moving cat off keyboard*

Sharon2,

My 7 cats go nuts over the Jingle Cats CD I have...but I think they are acting with aggression, believing a very talented Tom is invading their space! It's funny to watch all of them get poofy tail and walking like Frankenstein around in the room with the CD player.

The only instrument I have they seem to like is the harp. So much so, I have to keep it put away where they can't get to it. If I leave it out, I'll wake up in the night to the sounds of kitty compositions on the strings.

My cat Phluphi likes to hear my wife sing. The Mrs. has a very nice soprano voice.

One the other side, the cat will run and hide under the bed at the very sight of me getting the fife out to play. The fiddle the cat has learned to ignore. But as for me singing, if I sing something softly and acapella, Phluphi does the head butting thing and purrs.

Mungo likes rock and classical, but I think he should buy his own records. Cerys likes watching classical music, but I suspect that this is because of all the bows waving around, other than that, she couldn't give a toss.

I used to have a cat that would actually come in from outside to stop me from playing the whistle ( loud complaining followed by biting and scratching if it didn't stop quick enough ) she would then leave in a huff, as if to say "you're only doing it to annoy me...".

Did you know that cats read through their bottoms? I can't see why else they would keep sitting on what I'm trying to read.......

The cat doesn't seem to be musical any more (I used to think it was), though it won't tolerate very loud music. I don't generally crank up the volume unless I need to hear it downstairs in the shop, a long way from the stereo. That makes him hide for hours. I'll need a bigger stereo, or patch it through the p.a. to make him vanish altogether, or step in front of a truck.

The dog however seems to like the blues. At this moment I'm listening to Ralph Vaughan Williams and she's nowhere to be found. If I put Stevie Ray Vaughan on she'd be at my feet drooling...the aural equivalent of rolling in a dead salmon. Swelling strings seem to freak her out, much like her first encounter with a bear. The first time she heard pipe organ music she came right up to me and cocked her head to one side as if to say "what the fuck's that?"... kinda like she looked when she first saw a flying squirrel. I think she could learn to like the pipe organ.

What fun. Mooh.

"aural equivalent of rolling in dead salmon'???? LOVE IT! As Gathering-Goers can attest, mine are music lovers, and quite musical in their own rights. They appear out of nowhere for music, lounging on piano tops and in instrument cases. My personal favourite is the yearly listen to "Jeremy Brown and Jeanie Teale" at Christmastime. The first year I played it, the dog parked himself in front of the speaker and listened to it. One of the fairies is named Angus, and so is the dog. I imagine his perception of the story is something along the lines of: "Blah, blah, blahblah, blah blahblah, Angus (dog wags tail) blah blah blah Angus (wags again) blah..." The cats walk by and swat him for being such a yutz.

Years ago my sister had a Siamese who would come sit next to the speakers every time my dad put on his favorite album...My Fair Lady. My own cats never seemed to be interested one way or another. On the other hand, my corgis have very specific taste. They love to hear me play the guitar, 2nd best is OP playing guitars, then any stringed instrument. Harmonicas are definitely not on, however, and they will drown them out every time.

" poofy tail and walking like Frankenstein"...Robin, I love this description! Exactly right, and very funny when done by a kitten...

One cat doesn't seem to respond much to aural stimuli, another likes the sound of running water, and the third really likes the harp. She didn't respond much to my Celtic harp, but after I got the concert harp she'd always be in the room when I practiced, lying on her back. I think she liked the vibrations she could feel through the floor. (Dog likes harp as well.)

Jen, I noticed your cats listening to the people music and Bridget curling up by my (dormant) guitar. And, of course, who could forget Angus saying "Oreo" or crooning "Rrow-lin'" as backup to "Proud Mary." But I was so busy watching and listening to Angus that I didn't notice how Sully and Bridget reacted to their canine brother's singing. Do they like it?

Burke! I had a kitty that used to do Exactly the Same Thing! He loved the whistle.

My other kitty, who is still with us, hates the whistle. He didn't like the violin when I first started playing, but he's all right with it now. He doesn't seem to care one way or the other.

Our old dog, Zenith, barked at Mister's guitar the first time he got it out. She was only about 4 months old at the time.

I had a budgie who really liked Michael Martin Murphey's first Cowboy Songs album. He'd just chirp right along with it.

Our resident tabby seems to ignore Sheryl and I when we trot out guitars. Plus she's a shy critter and likely to flee into the bedroom when we have sings here.

A friend's tabby had similar reactions to the "Jingle Cats" CD as described here. In this case, I believe the cat was stalking around the living room, ears twitching, sniffing at the air with a puzzled look. "I hear another cat, but I can't smell them! What's going on here?"

Maximus Gluteous started noisily washing his bits during God save the King, huzzah! A republican cat!!! Either that or he (like most of the audience by the looks and the lipreading) didn't like Brittens' arrangement.... everyone's a critic.

He seemed to like the Black Sabbath I had on this morning, he tried to stick his head in the tape deck - well, the speakers are high on the wall and he's got a dicky knee where I broke him last week.....

(It was an accident, he landed awkwardly and ripped his crustacean ligaments or something..... I've been paying ever since....).

The cat sits by my feet as I play concertina, and when I stop he speaks to me. It's not the "Anguish" wail, it's not the "Feed me" noise, it's not the "Let me out or I'll crap on your carpet again" howl, it's something unique. It either means "Play some more" or "For God's sake stop that row". If I knew which, it would be a great step forward in trans-species communication. As it is, I ignore the bugger.

How do you know you are ignoring him? If you play on, does he leave? Maybe he WAS asking for more.... Presumably such a well trained pet as yourself could interpret whether he was going to crap in the case or not, in which case, I think you have it sussed.

Now all you have to do is stop buying food in cans he can't manage, and your job is done..... : )

PS Max the broken cat is on the mend - and crafty as all getout... he was trotting round the garden on 3 good legs and one slightly wobbly, until he spotted me looking out the window at him, when he immediately became tripod cat with 3 wobbly legs and one that resembled a sock full of custard. There go his privileges! And to think I was feeding him biccies on the sofa and carrying him out to the food bowls! Little bugger!

Re cats' musical preferences, for some reason all the cats I've had have responded especially well to "Edelweiss" as a song whistled to call them to come to the door or into a room. I've tried other tunes, but they seem to like "Edelweiss."
