Do cats enjoy music?

For over 20 years the same wonderful man has come to my home to tune my piano. Chris was here the other day, and, as always, when he finished tuning he played a song or two for me. I LOVE to watch Chris play the piano, because I can tell he loves to play as much as I do!

For the first time in all these years I played a recording for Chris of some Christmas songs I sent to my Mom, back in 1983. The highlight of this recording was the duet of me and my dog, Martha. Martha was an amazing singer – whenever she heard the first note on the piano she’d come running from wherever she was in the house to join me in song.

Martha’s been gone for 13 years, and for the first time in my life I am living with four very special kitties…but no dog. I haven’t played the piano as much as I used to because somehow without a dog curled up under the piano bench it just doesn’t feel quite the same.

But I sat down the other day to play and to my surprise Pippen, one of my magical cats, came over and joined me on the bench. She sat there while I played and sang, and seemed to be mesmerized by the keys, the music, my singing – it was such a lovely and unexpected gift!

So, here’s my question to other cat people – do your felines enjoy music?

My kitty, Kimber, loves to hear me sing. He gets all affectionate and rubs up against me. I can tell he really enjoys soft music, too, just by looking into his eyes. He gets this sleepy-eyed, silly grin on his face and it’s really quite amazing.

Vicki, I’m so glad to hear about Kimber’s love for your music. There are few things as soothing as a contented cat!
