Hi all!

About 5 minutes ago, I starting whistling; which I never do. Well, it turns out my girls love the sound of whistling! They were completely digging me!! The more I whistled, the more they digged me.... However, when Stevie was on her hinde legs looking at me, she swatted my glasses off!! I know she did not mean it in an angry way so I did not get mad at her. I just stopped what I was doing and started to type! I figured ignoring her behavior is the right thing to do (which is what I learned on this forum).

Anyway, my question is.....why was my whistling making them so interested in me?? They were rubbing my legs, looking at me so lovingly, etc... It was great!!

I don't know why your cats respond so well. Maybe someone else will have an idea, but my sister had a cat that seemed to like whistling. She would come up very close to you if you did. It was cute.

Mine have come to me when I whistle for years. A lot of cats seem to like it.

Cats hear very high sounds well and 'speak' it - listen to their squeaks. It's natural for them to respond - they think you've finally got it! They'll respond to you better too if you raise your voice higher... try it.

One of the cats I grew up with used to follow my dad around when he would whistle, he loved it too.
