My cat gets weird when I whistle (Read 877 times)

    I can make any kind of noise I want. Cat continues to sleep, although she might open an eye for a second to let me know I'm bothering her.

      I put some time in on a variety of instruments. The flute seems to be OK with the cat-when I play the Eb tuba she gives me a "what the hell is that?" look, but when I even reach for the alto saxophone case, she's gone without a backward glance.


      Feeling the growl again

        I grew up about 3 miles outside of a small town that set off its fire siren to mark 8am, 12pm, and 5pm.  For the 12 years he was alive before he went deaf, my childhood mutt would amble out into the front lawn as the distant siren sounded and look towards town.  Once it was no longer audible to humans (if you were really in town you knew it continued on at a lower frequency long after it was audible further away) he'd howl mournfully at it for about 3-5 minutes.  Funny stuff.

         

        Cats always act odd around me.  I'd think they were paranoid but since I am really out to get them, I guess not.

          Yeah, in the town where I grew up, they would sound the civil defense sirens every day at noon.  All the dogs in town would stop what they were doing to join the Great Dog for a howl.

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

             My cats don't mind my piano playing, love my singing apparently, absolutely detest guitar (unplugged or plugged), and you should've seen them when I played piccolo. :O  Don't seem to hate flute as much.

              My friends cats go bug f+ck when she hums.

                My cat does, too.  I was just looking at a video last night I took about a year ago the day we realized my cat does this...my husband was sitting on the couch whistling, and she would run over, jump on the couch, bite his arm, jump down, run away, come back, bite his arm, repeat repeat repeat. It was hilarious.

                 

                 

                She's ok with humming. In fact, whenever we hum the theme from Godfather she comes running and sits next to us. Not sure if she's showing us family loyalty, or implying she's going to kill us...hmmm....

                        Really???   Only when you whistle?  My experience is that cats are weird fairly consistently...or at least 24/7/365.

                        There is only one acceptable pace...all out suicide...

                        ...and today is a good day to die!
