RelaxMyCat - Relaxing Music for Cats

Amman Ahmed

Relax My Cat are experts in creating relaxing music to help calm your cat and help them sleep. Our music is composed in-house by our team of producers, and uses an array of sound techniques designed to relax and calm your cat. If your cat has sleeping problems or anxiety problems or is even stressed during construction, fireworks or other loud noises, then our music should help.

Relax My Cat's music will help to calm and soothe your cat or kitten in a variety of situations. Minimise separation anxiety, reduce hyperactivity, minimise fear of thunderstorms or fireworks, stop unwanted whining, comfort sick or injured cats and calm your cat on car journeys - Relax My Cat does it all!

Our music is based on years of experimenting and by combing music and environmental sounds that pique the interest of cats; it is written in a musical language that is uniquely designed to appeal to the domestic cat.

All of the music is recorded on traditional instruments and the human voice. No actual cat, mouse, or bird calls are used (although it may sound like it).

Relax My Cat’s music is unique, and will help in a variety of situations as a substitute for medication. We have helped thousands of cats and kittens worldwide to sleep and reduce their anxiety. Music therapy for your cat can keep them calm, happy and healthy, and it is a great way to rehabilitate rescue cats - or just get your kitten or cat used to their new home. Being re-homed is an incredibly stressful time for cats - as they have to get used to a lot of different sights and sounds, as well as their new family and any other pets in the household. We recommend that you play Relax My Cat during this time, and it will help reduce their heart rate and relax them while they explore their new surroundings. No more whining kittens - they will get used to your home in no time at all with the help of Relax My Cat's music! New Kitten Playlist: You may be litter training, which can be a stressful time for both dog and parent, and our music will soothe your kitten making your life easier.

When listening to Relax My Cat you will notice your kitten start to relax, and get more used to their tray, or similarly if you are training them to get used to their travel box. It is also very useful to calm your cat during car journeys - which many kittens find a stressful time. They may associate it with vets visits - so we recommend playing Relax My Cat's music before and after visits to the vet to reduce their stress. Poorly Cats Playlist: The worst time of year for over 60% of cats is Firework season - the loud bangs are really scary for them and you may notice a huge change in your kitty during this time.

Thunderstorms are another difficult time for cats, with the majority of cats being very scared of storms because of the unfamiliar loud noises. Relax My Cat is the perfect solution to this anxiety inducing situation - just play our music to reduce your cats anxiety and make them feel safe.

Fireworks and Storms Playlist: The most common problem we hear is separation anxiety in cats - being separated from you can cause severe anxiety in many cats.

Relax My Cat’s music has improved thousands of cases of separation anxiety and noisy felines all over the world. Separation Anxiety Playlist: Our music will help cats of all breeds and ages to stay relaxed and keep calm. We are also on a number of social media platforms - so join our community and let's chat! We love to hear about and see pictures of your kitties!

Animals Antarctica

Алексей Neronov

Our application will introduce you to the inhabitants of the Antarctica. You immerse yourself in the wonderful world of the mysterious sounds of Antarctic animals. We will show you amazing photos of wild Antarctica.

Few terrestrial vertebrates live in Antarctica. Invertebrate life includes microscopic mites like the Alaskozetes antarcticus, lice, nematodes, tardigrades, rotifers, krill and springtails. The flightless midge Belgica antarctica, up to 6 millimetres (0.2 in) in size, is the largest purely terrestrial animal in Antarctica. The snow petrel is one of only three birds that breed exclusively in Antarctica.

Some species of marine animals exist and rely, directly or indirectly, on the phytoplankton. Antarctic sea life includes penguins, blue whales, orcas, colossal squids and fur seals. The emperor penguin is the only penguin that breeds during the winter in Antarctica, while the Adélie penguin breeds farther south than any other penguin. The rockhopper penguin has distinctive feathers around the eyes, giving the appearance of elaborate eyelashes. King penguins, chinstrap penguins, and gentoo penguins also breed in the Antarctic.

The Antarctic fur seal was very heavily hunted in the 18th and 19th centuries for its pelt by sealers from the United States and the United Kingdom. The Weddell seal, a "true seal", is named after Sir James Weddell, commander of British sealing expeditions in the Weddell Sea. Antarctic krill, which congregate in large schools, is the keystone species of the ecosystem of the Southern Ocean, and is an important food organism for whales, seals, leopard seals, fur seals, squid, icefish, penguins, albatrosses and many other birds.

A census of sea life carried out during the International Polar Year and which involved some 500 researchers was released in 2010. The research is part of the global Census of Marine Life (CoML) and has disclosed some remarkable findings. More than 235 marine organisms live in both polar regions, having bridged the gap of 12,000 km (7,456 mi). Large animals such as some cetaceans and birds make the round trip annually. More surprising are small forms of life such as mudworms, sea cucumbers and free-swimming snails found in both polar oceans. Various factors may aid in their distribution – fairly uniform temperatures of the deep ocean at the poles and the equator which differ by no more than 5 °C, and the major current systems or marine conveyor belt which transport eggs and larval stages.

The polar ear when hunting, readily lies on the ice for hours, moving towards its prey inch by inch and ‘freezing’ instantly every time the target stirs. Only its black nose can be seen in the background of white ice hummocks; cleverly, it covers its nose with a paw to disguise itself. The wind brings a mouth-watering smell of a seal, sleeping next to a hole in the ice. Should the seal detect the slightest rustle or snow crunch, it will dive into the water, where it can never be caught. When the prey is only a few metres away, the polar bear jumps up and covers the distance in a couple of giant leaps. It breaks the skull of a hundred kilogram seal with one punch and then drags its lunch to a place, where it can enjoy the meal without being disturbed.

Africa. Wild animals.

Voynich Gallery

Every year about two million hoofed mammals (a million and a half antelopes, gnu, two hundred thousand zebras and half a million Thompson gazelles) set out via east African valleys in search of fresh grass and water. This great seasonal migration has passed along the same ‘corridors’ for thousands of years from the south to the north, from the national park of Serengeti in Tanzania to the Kenyan reserve Masai Mara, in July-August. In October-November the animals go back to the south following the torrential rains after which the earth becomes covered with thick high grass. Scientists have calculated that to feed up all of the antelopes, zebras and gazelles passing the annual circle of migration, four thousand tons of grass a day are required.

The predators (lions, leopards, wild dogs and griffons) closely follow the ‘migrants’. All of them hope for easy prey since a great number of animals perish during the trip, especially weak ones due to old age or very young. Crossing the river of Mara overcrowded with crocodiles, antelopes mad with hunger jump off the steep right into the jaws of the reptiles, injure each other, break their legs and often perish, their bodies becoming an original bridge used by the following animals for crossing the seething torrent. However, after the monstrously difficult passage has finished at last, there comes a time for breeding and the total number of animals is regenerated rapidly.

The Prefecture of Nagano is often named ‘The roof of Japan’. This is a mountainous area in the centre of the island of Honshu, where a lot of hot springs are located. The cold climate and abundant snowfalls make the Japanese Alps the real Mecca for lovers of winter sports. But there are much more wonderful things than good mountain skiing here. In the mountainous canyon Jigokudani (which means ‘Hell Valley’), there is a park of monkeys who indulge themselves having a bath. They are Japanese (or snow) macaques – the only monkeys adapted to living in the cold climate.

Photo album by E. Voynitch is devoted to these unique animals, which as a threatened species are in ‘IUCN Red List’.

Go Home, Dragon!
An Animated Story for Beginning Readers with Learning Activities

Children will love this delightful story about Dragon's adventures. The text of the story has simple words and lots of repetition, making it perfect for beginning readers. Colorful graphics and animation will capture your preschooler's attention.

Go Home, Dragon!

After a busy afternoon of running, skipping and flying in a flower-filled meadow, Dragon needs to find his way home. As he travels through the woods, he encounters his animal friends. He tries out each of their homes, but finds a reason why each home is not right.

Record and playback buttons appear on each page of the story. Initially parents, teachers or grandparents may want to read and record the story for the child. Eventually the child will learn to read the story and will want to read it independently.

Humor and Animation Stimulate Interest

Preschoolers will relate to Dragon's playfulness and curiosity. Youngsters and adults alike will get a kick out of Dragon's humorous attempts to fit into each home he finds on his journey. Just when it seems Dragon will never find his home, he discovers Mom waiting for him in his own perfect cave home.

At the end of the story three learning activities are provided to help with letter recognition and beginning reading.
