  • Heckling pets?

    Does anyone else have a pet that starts flipping out when you play?

    I've got a couple of parrots that go nuts when I start playing. They do it when I play rock band too. Sometimes it's funny, other times it's annoying. The funny one was when one of them starting counting along with the metrenome!

    No, my pets ignore me when I play. Kinda hurts my feelings.

    A video of that action would be hilarious!

        Knowing my luck, they'd stop yelling if I tried to video tape it. The dogs ignore it when I play too.

          Funny thread. I posted this on another forum some time ago: when I played my CVP-303 digital piano, my dog used to go sit right behind me and just stare. Very annoying.

          No problem when I'm playing my drums on the 2nd floor; she can't walk the stairs...

                I try to fit in an hour of playing after work from 5 -6pm (when work lets me...) - my dog knows when it's time to knock off and have tea (dinner) - she comes downstairs at 5:55 and gives me the message (barks).....I try to think that that she just loves me and is telling me it's time to give her a pat.....but sometimes it's a pain when trying to concentrate on a particular part.

                  Actually, the time I sat down on the drums and one of the birds goes "G-- damn it!!" really loud was the funniest one.

                      Our dog follows me around, she sleeps on a folded up old comforter right next to the drum kit. THAT show some devotion....

                        When I was a teenager, I had a set of Ludwig Vistalites with power toms. These drums were LOUD.
                        The family cat would jump and run out of the room when I started playing... the kind of tearing around corners where the cat's feet can't get a grip and go sliding all over the place.
                        It was really funny then.
                        I guess I grew up....because it's only a LITTLE funny now.

                            I've posted a few times before about my cats (now, just one cat) and my drums.

                            Here is a post about Gizmo, the Himalayan I still have, playing the drums - plus where he enjoys sleeping and hanging out.

                            There was also a thread about VDrums and cats; I posted there about my former ragdoll cat sleeping in front of the speaker of my Altec system:

                              Same thing here - very strange. The cats ignore my drumming, but tend to watch if I'm playing keyboards.

                              No more V-drums; all acoustics now.
