Cat-tip for the Day - Calming Music
One study done has shown that cats relax when classical music is playing. Mozart, Beethoven & ocean sounds mixed in can calm your restless kitty. Calm music calms cats while rock music has the exact opposite affect. It can absolutely disturb them.
on a personal note....When I enter a home where the owners are travelling and they have left classical music playing in the home I always find very relaxed and calm cats waiting for me. I
imagine that the fact that the owners love classical music keeps them calm and because cats are very in-tune with our body language they reap the benefits from a calm owner.
The calm music also keeps the cat relaxed and fills the void of silence while it is alone. I suggest you try playing calming music for your cat/cats to see if they agree with this study.
