I got this cat CD as it promised great relaxation for the kitties. The blurb says "Cats respond to all kinds of music, but the tracks on this CD have been specially created to relax and calm your cat. Purring sounds - which are healing sounds for cats - have been included to have an extra calming effect on your pet!"
It has 4 tracks by the Japanese composer Hiroki Sakaguchi who also played Keyboard, Chikara Suda (Cello & Outstring), Shigeru Oikawa (recorder/Traverso), Tohru Sakurada (lute), Hiroshi Fuzukawa (Viola da Gamba) and takeshi Ishikawa (percussion). I was trying to listen to the purring sounds and of course I didn't hear any. This morning I read that "Some of the tracks in this CD contain sounds that are only audible to animals". Ok. THAT is something that I cannot verify :)
However, it seems the composer's pet dog would always listen to the music he composed and his friends pets were all relaxed when they heard the music.
Last night Bujang was being very bossy to me as well as to the boys and he ran up and down the bedroom. So I figured out I should give the CD a try. Of course I had switched off all the lights. This always makes them calmer, even Bujang. However sometimes he would still yell for some time afterwards and would try to bully the other two. I am glad to report that a few minutes after I played the tracks, he became quiet and sat down to relax. I will try the CD again throughout the week of course to see if indeed it is not a fluke.
Btw Trude Mostue, TV vet saiys "It really does work!" :))
