I know it's not whistling, but if you do a yodel mix afterward, there's this - http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2008/04/yodel-mp3s.html

The Andy Griffith whistler just died!

http://www.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/TV/05/2 ... index.html

Earle H. Hagen, who co-wrote the jazz classic "Harlem Nocturne" and composed memorable themes for "The Andy Griffith Show," "I Spy," "The Mod Squad" and other TV shows, died Monday. He was 88.

Hagen, who is heard whistling the folksy tune for "The Andy Griffith Show," died at his home in Rancho Mirage, his wife, Laura, said Tuesday. He had been in ill health for several months.

During his long musical career, Hagen performed with the top bands of the swing era, composed for movies and television, and wrote one of the first textbooks on movie composing.

He and Dick Rogers were nominated for an Academy Award for best music scoring for the 1960 Marilyn Monroe movie "Let's Make Love."

I discovered recently that if I whistle the Andy Griffith theme that both of my cats will come running to me. It's weird because they look all concerned and they start meowing at me. One of them even jumps up on my lap and puts his face close to mine.

Try it with your cats and see what happens.
