Offbeat way to stop your two cats from fighting | by Paulette Cooper & Paul Noble

O sole me-ow. Music may prevent two cats from fighting! What kind works best?

One woman with two constantly bickering cats kept classical music on for them all day while she was away and found it was the only thing that stopped them from fighting.

Another cat owner, who also also found that music diminished her cat's aggressiveness, found that classical harp music worked the best.

Here are some more off-beat facts about music and your cat.

A certain key may make kittens defecate and older cats become sexually aroused. (We'll tell you the note if you promise not to test it out for yourself: It's E in the fourth octave. Don't write us about the results. We don't want to know.)

Cats may respond to some music, for example, becoming happy when they hear the theme song of a TV show. (Some cats are also attracted to mice who sing offkey. Bet you didn't even know that they sang on key.)

And if you start singing off key, your cat may meow in distress. (As will other people around you.)
