  • Pets and Organs, does your pet like your organ?

    Do your pets like to sit sleep on your organ, or do they come and sit on the seat with you when you play? Do cats and dogs like organ music?

    Re: Pets and Organs, does your pet like your organ?



    My wife and I have two Shelties, Joseph and Cody. The organ is located in a basement studio and Joseph comes down every time I play and lays on the floor next to the bench. Sometimes he whines to sit on my lap. So, I would definitely say animals like organ music. However, Joseph also likes to lay on my lap when music is playing on the stereo.

        My yellow lab, CiCi Polenta, will sit quietly, watching me as I play. When a pup, she would try to sit on the bench but it was too slippery. When I stop playing, however, she wants to go out to play. Most of the time, organ recordings are playing in the background and she seems very relaxed, except with the louder, higher-pitched, frenetic pieces. Then, she goes to the door and wants out immediately. Perhaps she would make a good critic?

          Our original dogs (half blue-tick and half pit bull) would howl when I played the recorder, flute, or bagpipe chanter. The only dog who comes close now when I play is our rescued English Springer Spaniel. The Beagle and Cocker Spaniel don't appear to care one way or the other. The cats we had (both dead now) were indifferent.

          Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:
          • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony) / ADC-8000DKC
          • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
          • 11 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 7 Pianos

              All my cats (I have one 2-year-old and 4 kittens right now) love(d) to climb around in my Schober Recital Model as kittens. It hasn't been working since I got the felines, so I don't know their preferences for music. They seem indifferent to the Pipe Dreams broadcasts, though, and the organ would be using the same speakers.




              However, all of them do like to lay on the floor near me when I'm sitting at the computer and that might carry over if I were playing the organ (both have keyboards).

                As you can see from my picture, our adopted shepherd/beagle mix Katie will make her way on to the bass pedals and lay across them when she is nervous during thunderstorms. This turns anything I am playing into a more avant-garde dissonant piece....sometimes when she is just antsy for attention, she will also start stepping on/walking acrossthe bass pedals when I am playing.Ihave fun and turn various pedal stops on and off when she does this - I'll try to improvise based on whatever pedal is being stepped on. Most of the time she will just lie on her back with her legs up, completely relaxed, while I am practicing. So I guess she likes the music.

                  HA HA!



                  No, neither of my two dogs sound like an organ , and I usually keep them away from the instrument during play :)

                    Dear friends.



                    I  have animals in the house, a beautiful dog (Jury) and two beautiful cats (Linus and Judina).

                    Linus loves to stay above the piano and above the organ pedalboard, even when I play, while Jury and Judina are small enough indifferent.
                    The dog, however, seems somewhat frightened by the piano ...
                    While cats seem indifferent to music.
                    But I discovered their weakness: they are very frightened by a piece of electronic music.


                    Try playing a "Artikulation" (G.Ligeti) with a good Hi-fi: cats with a terror!



                    Try to believe!

                      I had various pet rats as a boy, but none of them seemed much interested in my music making. However, since I never took them to church, they only heard my piano playing.



                      One rat was very finicky about bleu cheese, unless, of course, it was imported from Copenhagen.

                          Ew, Michael Jackson, what hath god wrought? And as for that '70's outfit, totally vomitous.



                          Well I suppose at that age he could have landed the high Bb in Dyson's brilliantly written Evening Service in D, but I'd give it a miss, Jackson wouldn't be idiomatic anyway, as if he would care.



                          Pet rats are wonderful. They're cleaner than cats, more intelligent than dogs, and very affectionate.



                          If you guys don't settle down, I'm going to get another pet rat and name him Cameron. [:D]

                            Jason, you probably should get more rats - andname them all Cameron. [:P]




                            Ithink I'd better explain to some of the younger members here [8-)] that the "Ben" song is from that rat movie (of the same name).

                              Bleu cheese doesn't come from Copenhagen, silly! [:D]




                              I have one cat who likes to sleep on the bench, but he happily moves when I hit the run switch. The other prefers the recorder. She seems to enjoy prancing about to it. It's really quite heartwarming.
