Singing Pets

Updated on November 23, 2014

Meet Singing Pets!

Many animals sing and pets can be trained to do it in a most remarkable way. This lens highlights some of those animals.

Of course some animals howl at the moon, for example, and we don't call that singing - but why not? It's obvious the bright light has affected them so much they vocalise it.

But this lens is about animals that sing to music or to each other and they are remarkable in their talents to do so. While they may not exactly grab an instrument and start to play, like this cute little number, there are some who do like to tinkle the keys on a piano.

Singing Comes Naturally to Some

Whether its nature calling or something else.

Studies in animal behaviour show that different species have wonderful songs that they sing together or when alone. The whale songs are now famous and they travel for hundreds of miles through the water. It is thought they may be checking up on the position of other whales or they may be calling mates, and so on.

While this lens is about singing pets we need to delve into their background to find out what they are capable of and where the talent comes from. So the sounds of the wild are included here and they are absolutely beautiful and amazing.

Birds are known for their wonderful mating songs and even for their seduction of potential mates through next building and dances they perform.

Do you think animals are really singing?

Are animal songs meaningful?

The Amazing Australian Lyre Bird

Nothing escapes this bird's talens for imitating sounds. It is rare indeed to be so close and capture one on film as they are very shy. But David Attenborough seems to overcome all those kind of hurdles.

We Have Probably Underestimated Them

It appears to be in keeping with their behaviour

Imitating human sounds is no different for some animals than repeating jungle noises. It is probably related to survival, especially in birds, when predator sounds are able to be repeated to ward off other predators.

But judging from the songs of the Lyre Bird and other species of flying animals, whose brains are no larger than an almond, they have certainly gone a step much further, unless we have completely underestimated animal behaviour. How can they recall so much without the presence of a sub conscious mind? It leaves one thinking that maybe humans, with brains the size of melons, are really just melon heads.

The Singing Whales

It seems that most do sing real songs.

Wikiopedia notes: "Some species, such as the humpback whale, communicate using melodic sounds, known as whale song. These sounds can be extremely loud, depending on the species. Sperm whales have only been heard making clicks, while toothed whales (Odontoceti) use echolocation that can generate about 20,000 watts of sound (+73 dBm or +43 dBw and be heard for many miles. Whale vocalization is likely to serve many purposes, including echolocation, mating, and identification."

Studies show that whales bounce sound off objects to locate them. They live in pods and use squeaks, clicks and whistles. The latter brings another thought into the agenda as early human languages also used clicks while Quechua and the Kalahar Kung still do.

In my research I found clicks were a substitute for language sounds where the tongue was restricted in movement and if you make a click you will see that it is unnecessary as the sides, palate and lips can all produce clicks.

People who love animals will often open a pet related business. Some may have been considering it for some time and are reluctant to take the first steps, It can be daunting to start a new enterprise with more questions than answers. So how do you find out if this is right for you? Well, you could read a book about the pros and cons, make a plan, think long term and do your homework.

With so many different kinds of pet businesses likely, such as Pet Sitting, Doggie Day Care, Boarding Kennel, Grooming, Dog Bakeries and much more, one might be confused as to what type one should be engaging in. This company knows there has never been a better time to join the Pet Care Industry as pet popularity is at an all-time high. Plus many couples are working harder and pets make good companions for their children and a great welcoming home friend for themselves.

Watch How You Treat Your Animals

They might be allergic to chemical treatments

As one who is allergic to chemicals my body rejects most prescription drugs and it is far more responsive to natural remedies. It's possibly the same with animals. They evolved with natural products from the wild and my animals often chew on grass and other things in the garden. These are essential cures for their ailments and are known by them without teaching from anyone.

If you have a garden and animals be very careful of what you spray around. Herbicides can kill or at best cause health stress to animals. Chooks are particularly susceptible to poisons and will quickly pass on. That applies to all birds, including the wild ones who visit your garden looking for insects and other things, such as nest building materials. Snail bait should also be animal friendly as birds predate on these and other bugs. If the bugs have been poisoned then it will effectively poison them as well.

If your animal is sick there are simple remedies to overcome the condition. One of my favorites is colloidal silver which is a great healer that works wonders on the human body. It has worked well on stomach conditions, the control of worms, external skin problems, sore eyes, and so on. But other holistic products are available from the following companies.

Preventable conditions, such as obesity and lethargy, can be helped with the right substances and care, especially with food. Vet bills add much to the cost of caring for pets while premature age-related diseases can start early.

Treat Fish With Kindness

They have feelings too and if you catch fish use non barbed hooks so you can throw them back if not wanted.

Also hit a caught fish on the head to prevent it suffering and dying slowly.

      These were truly a lot of fun to watch! I seriously nearly fell out of my chair over the singing cat. Not sure why that one struck me so funny, but it did.
