Oh my goodness. Well my Ishies (whom I think is not quiet right to begin with). Acts in a bizar mannor to my cell phone as well. Any cell phone. She doesn't meow at it, but she feircly attacks it. As soon as it beeps or rings, she will just munch away at it trying to kill it, not just giving it a couple licks, even if its stopped ringing a long time ago, and I put it in front of her if she remmebers what it is, she will attack it again. My antenna is her own personal tooth pick.

It doesn't matter what ringer, or pitch i use, she hates them all. She will come storming across the room to find the source of that sound and attack it.

I read or heard somewhere that the reason why some cats chew telephone wires/electrical wires is because the wires emit tiny little sounds which mimic mouse sounds. We can't hear them but the kitties can. So maybe the mobile phones have a sound that attracts them?? Also, certain plastics contain a protein that is attractive to kitties. Maybe that's it. Dunno but I bet it's funny to watch

Strange - my cat is just the opposite!! When I'm choosing a new ring for my mobile he will come running and try to get as close to it as possible. He's terribly curious about it but definitely not hostile!
