Cats and Music - 10/05/12 12:44 PM
I have two cats.
When I sit down to practice, one immediately meows to go outside (and he doesn't give up). the other one comes and sits on the piano.
One has good taste and one doesn't but I don't know which is which.

My cat loves to hear concertos on the stereo.
One reason is because they are accompanied by treats scattered around the house as we are leaving for the day.
The stereo is placed on replay and turned to a moderate volume.

I have three cats. I win.
Cats and other ann-i-mules can't hear music, contrary to popular opinion. They can hear the sound, but don't have the area in the brain, as humans do, that perceives music as music.
Learnt that in the social psychology of music. Was disappointed to learn it, but learnt it anyway.
I'm sure your cats enjoy your playing. =]

I also have two cats. When I sit down to play, one of them comes over and jumps up onto the bench to sit next to me. Sometimes he puts his paws on my shoulder and tries to "head-butt" me (which is very distracting). The other one ignores us both. UNTIL I start Hanon exercises. Then he runs like crazy to another room. Go figure.
