Cats' sense of hearing is remarkably superior to that of humans. This means that cats can hear sounds we can't hear on both ends of the spectrum, particularly the higher end. Cats' ears are uniquely designed to draw sound into the ear canal, which enables them to hear sounds like a mouse rustling in the brush 30 feet away. By the same token, their ears are more sensitive to higher amplitude of sound. It is common knowledge that humans' hearing can be compromised by repeated exposure to loud music/TV. Cats may be more susceptible to potential deafness from the same cause. Easily prevented from this potential issue…No loud music around your pets…
