Have you ever wondered if you cat is a music lover or shares your appreciation for heavy metal or classical music?
If your cats are like mine, they tend to ignore most of my music, and the television holds no appeal to them either. The only thing close is when I whistle the theme song to Bridge Over the River Kwai. And for some reason, it’s the tabbies who can’t get enough of it.
My dog, a Chihuahua, also ignores all music and television, except for the operatic commercial for J.G. Wentworth, which sends him into thinking he’s supposed to be part of the company and therefore starts singing through the entire thing.
I’ve always wondered if animals shared our love of all things music. And now researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison have stepped in get a handle on this very question, at least for cats.
