Do dog whistles work on cats?

Do dog whistles work on cats? I've had my cat off and on for 3-4 years now. I've tried playing the call of the mountn lion to get him to come when we open the door, and tried talking to him, he just doesn't like people. There are many times when my girlfriend plays those "cat chirps" on her phone, and they get him to come, but he doesn't seem to like that. He just looks at it.

Should I keep trying it or just stick to just the chirps? Or should I get a different cat? I was thinking about getting another small one to have in the house.

I have tried this and found that it works if you use it with the click of the tongue in the back of the throat (but it's not as easy as many dog trners would lead you to believe). It's a trick that all cats should know, but don't expect them to do it without lots of practice.

I think you should try chirping for a while, and see how he responds to it. You may end up just doing what you're already doing, since your cat might not appreciate it much. However, if he doesn't do it naturally, it's worth trying. You could even pick up the chirp with your voice and try that (which, if you're good at it, may even get him to follow you if he doesn't do it naturally).

I have an old man cat (6 years old now). I used to play a little tune on my phone using my laptop speakers but it would take him years to learn it because he's afrd of the noises from the speakers.

I have tried chirping for a while, and found it to be ineffective. He is a bit less vocal than my other cats, but I don't think that this has anything to do with age. We all had quite a high number of younger siblings, with the exception of one older cat that I always thought was more aloof.

I tried this with the other cats a few years ago, but it just didn't work. He is too old and has too much sense to fall for that sort of trick.

It does not work to chirp with a different sound. I tried the high-pitched "aat" sound in the middle of my voice and my oldest cat got so mad that I would have to let it out of the room for a week. I was just trying to annoy him, but all it seemed to do was scare the poor thing.

My current cat was in another room when I was testing the technique. I had one set of speakers playing the chirp sound and another set playing normal noises, and when I entered he didn't even bat an eye. My youngest daughter also reported that the cat looked at her suspiciously, but she's a small child.

The problem with this technique is that it works. Cats can tell the difference between the human voice and a recording of it, and they can tell the difference between a chirp and a human voice. They can tell you are trying to trick them by changing the recording, but if you say the chirp in the same tone in which you would normally say it, it can still annoy them. If you say it softly and softly, with your volume lowered until the cat doesn't even hear the chirp, eventually it will stop working. Cats are pretty good at figuring things out.

He is my favorite cat now, because he used to hate me. Now he thinks I'm a great mom. He came home from the vet a couple of weeks ago, apparently suffering from an intestinal condition, and he is really sick. I'm going to try some of this trick to see if it's working. I hope he doesn't think I'm trying to get revenge on him.

I know that cats, like humans, can't actually understand spoken words. You can't really hear a cat "understand" a chirp. It's a physical response to your chirping and may be a combination of being startled, hearing a loud noise and recognizing it as you coming into the room, or the sound being annoying and being used by cats as a warning to stay away from the sound source.

If you ask a cat what she heard, her answer will be based on some of those factors, such as the loudness of the chirp, how often it was repeated, the number of times it was repeated and the cat's personality. In most cases, she will tell you what she experienced and no more than that.

I've owned cats for many years and have had many different cats. I've never found a cat that understood my chirps. I do chirp a lot. When I was at a conference, a group of us were chatting and several people sd they could hear me chirping at home. This struck me as unusual as none of the other people I know and who have chirped have told me they can hear me chirping. Most of my colleagues who do not have cats have had similar experiences.

I don't think I've ever seen a cat come and investigate me chirping.

I do not believe that chirping has any kind of effect on a cat other than letting her know you are about.

This past weekend I chirped twice in the kitchen at home and then once outside.

Sunday afternoon I chirped one time from the garage and one time from the dining room, and each time, there was a little reaction, but they could not understand that I was calling them. I could tell from their actions, that they were interested in me.

My husband, who has a cat, also chirps, but only in a way that makes her know he is about. She does not understand chirping. She is much more sensitive to my vocalizations. He chirps more in the morning. I chirp for a short time before I wake up. I chirp a lot, so he often says that he will chirp at night. I don't always chirp when he chirps. I chirp for a while and then I go back to being still. My voice is also quieter when I am sleeping.

When I was listening to a chirping dog tape last night, my cat started to chirp in response to what the dog was saying. It was obvious that she was chirping to her since she had a look of wonder on her face. It is always amusing to see her respond
