Do you think your pets (or any animals) appreciate music?

I wonder. When I put on a CD I often watch my cats to see if they respond or not, hard to tell. I'd love to think they enjoy it, but who knows? They're emotional beings and I would like to think they enjoy it. Thoughts?

People say that if you leave the house or leave town to leave soft soothing music on for your cats so they dont feel alone.

Once I put on a U2 cd, after many weeks of listening to nothing but U2 cds, and my cat walked out of the room while yawning.

True story.

I leave the TV or music playin' for my animals when I leave the house.

Whenever I sing, my dad's cat Amy comes runnin' up to me and she gets all's so damn cute. I was singin' "Amy" to her earlier...

My umbrella cockatoo dances to music if she likes it. She bobs back and forth. If she really gets into it, she'll do an intrepretive dance, running and spinning.

My sister says she likes Dave Matthews. I know everytime I put on U2, she starts screaming.

I think a pet could respond to a mood or mood change that might have come about because of what you were listening to.

Yeah, I've heard that too. Music doesn't really seem to have any affect on my dog, although maybe she'd like to listen to it while she's home alone and I just don't know it.

I once had a cat that loved music. He would sit by the speaker when would turn on the radio. He would also walk up and down the piano...he could play the piano better than I could, seriously

My dog doesn't like U2.

When there are bubble gum poppy tunes on the radio, he starts jumping around, though.

My cat Jarvis acts as if he's had a huge dose of catnip anytime he hears Bono's talking or speaking voice. He'll run around the room as fast as he can and let out little meows.

When "With or Without You" is on, he writhes around on the floor.

When I was a teenager, I had a little black dog named Nikki. Whenever I would play my Who records, or something similar, she would come and listen to them with me. If my bedroom door was shut, she'd either lay outside my door, or outside my window. Sometimes, she'd come into my room, push my rug up into a comfortable ball, and curl up on it right in front of the blasting speakers. At parties, when I'd put my speakers near my window so we could hear the music outside, she'd be right there, listening right under the window. She only did this when rock music was playing.

She also liked my brother's friends' pot smoke, but that's a different story.
