Wonderpurr Garage Band Music

I have the World’s Greatest Pet Sitter and when she mentions a change, I jump on it right away. So when she told me she thought Jesse, Nikolas and Chevy, whom she calls the Garage Band, needed music to fill the silence, I went looking for a radio.

No one carries radios anymore. Seriously, I went everywhere and found nothing. I even made the mistake of revealing my age when I asked someone if they carried transistor radios. He looked at me like I’d asked if they carried plutonium. I didn’t want to spend a lot. The Garage Band mostly sleeps when I’m out of town, and ordering on line didn’t appeal to me.

But! Just when I thought Michelle would have to hum Sound of Silence while feeding them, I found my Dad’s old stereo. He passed in 2009 and it ended up in a closet, unplayed for 8 years. Plus the speakers were missing. But after I dusted it off and I plugged a pair of computer speakers into the earphone slot, music poured out.

Right now my cats are listening to NPR. A classical symphony is playing. Michelle suggested Classic Rock, but I don’t think the boys would appreciate Steppenwolf, Steely Dan or The Who.

  • I have a unit Like that, and we never use it. We are almost always home, but that’s a good idea for when we are away. On our last few days away, I spent a lot of time talking to the kitties through the Pet Cube, bt that isn’t always an option. Good job!

  • “transistor radios” – Haven’t heard that term in a while ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You might be surprised about what the Garage Band likes … on July 4, every yahoo on the complex is out shooting off fireworks. They start at 2pm and it goes to 2am or later. Bear’s a nervous wreck and can’t go to sleep. Finally, I just put on some metal/alternative music … turned it up … and he was out cold in 10 minutes flat. I really didn’t think it was going to work – but that’s all I have ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Music is definitely the way to soothe many an ache and pain or comfort those alone. What quick thinking to reuse the radio and speakers too. Those will be the first Garage Classic Band out there and may well start a new trend. MOL
