Do Ultrasonic Humidifiers Bother Cats?
Because they can’t hear them. Cats have better hearing than humans and they still can’t hear this humidifier.
Ultrasonic Humidifiers operate at 20 TIMES the frequency that cats can hear.
Some cat owners say that their cats suddenly turn into Inspector Gadget…
Can they actually hear the sound?
that's supposed to be impossible! Do you have a super cat on your hands?
The explanation's simple. (Not that I am against super cats)
Your cats won’t not hear the humidifier working. But it will hear the small fan motor spinning in the humidifier.
The sound of the motor changes as it travels through water.
In this case curiosity won't kill the cat!
