im a fan of loud music
and was wondering should i play this around my babies as their in my bedroom

- i have played it and they dont seem at all bothered, but i never leave it on for long because im worried about the effects on their lil earies

i have read playing classical music around pets is good but mine is as far from classical as music can get!

when i first put it on they stop what their doing and their ears twitch and they look around confused - but they stop soon after.

advice?

I like loud music as well, but I try to keep it reasonable and in another room from my babies. Their ears are so much more sensitive, and even if it didn't "hurt" them, it can't be that enjoyable either.

My brother and I both listen to loud music. The ratties don't seem to mind it as long as the bass isn't turned up. The first time we had the bass up with Sam around he was twitching in time to it and that didn't look to good so that was the last of the base.

I keep my music at a reasonable level out of respect for my pets. Loud music can damage our ears, especially with prolonged exposure, and I assume the same is true of animals. If I really want to listen to something loud (and I often do - metal rocks my world XD), I put on headphones.

I'm in the same boat as Mana - I don't blast music when my pets are around. In my room, I keep it at a reasonable volume so I can hear it while I'm cleaning and straightening things up, but so I don't disturb the rats/mice.

Animals have much more heightened senses then we do, so loud music almost seems a little cruel to me, personally. Again, like Mana, if I want to listen to something loud, I grab my headphones (or go in a different room).

I live in a college house with four other girls, so they hear loud music at least twice a week. But when we're having parties, I typically just keep my door closed, so the music isn't too big of a deal. I've never seen them bothered by it- the only time that they actually get bothered is when an intoxicated person comes up to their cage and starts bothering them... which is why I'm trying to get my landlord to put a keyed lock on my door. I was told by someone that rats would adapt to the loud noises... not sure how true that is, though.

I am not a loud music person, but my mom is XD
It hardly gets louder than what I'd allow for playing with pets in the room, so I haven no probmels with it. Same with headphones. I just don't like loud stuff so close to my ears.
But if it's an airplane, the louder the better!

So the loudness isn't much of a problem for my rats, and I recently discovered that ome of them (Rem) is either entierly or partialy deaf ><

I read in a magazine once that sounds which are too loud can cause seizures in mice. I don't know if the same goes for rats, but I wouldn't force my rats, or any of my pets, to listen to my music at full blast. I don't think it's fair to them, considering their ears are much more sensitive than our own.

I don't play any music except if I have trouble sleeping and that is on my cd player or my alarm clock when it goes off. Sometimes next door neighbor plays loud music. I don't think it bothers them much though. We always go knock or ring the doorbell when it gets too loud.
