Cell Phones and cats

This is a place to gain some understanding of cat behavior and to assist people in training their cats and dealing with common behavior problems, regardless of the method(s) used. Keep in mind that you may be receiving advice from other cat owners and lovers...not professionals. If you have a major problem, always seek the advice of a trainer or behaviorist!

My 7-yr or so old cat, Liger, goes nuts and will whine constantly when I listen to music or anything coming from my exterior cell phone speakers.
I have to turn it off because she sounds like she is in pain. I cannot seem to find anything online. My best guess is something to do with frequencies? She does not cry around the TV or my home theater system.
Has anyone else noticed this behavior?


Tigger is my- favorite!

hmm interesting - there has to be a pitch that is bothering her ears. Worth investigating for sure...


Always up to- some kind of- mischief...

You might want to see a vet for that... Worth investigating for sure!


I look so- innocent when- I'm sleeping.

Yes! Monida does the same thing! I thought it was just her. Wow! She goes absolutely crazy when she hears music from the phone. I can't have it on around her or she tries to attack it. But she's perfectly fine with everything else. I wonder what it could be?


Biting means I- love you..- right?

It sounds like it might be a certain pitch or frequency that is causing your kitty trouble. I'd be interested to find out for sure!
