I do it all of the time. My husband thinks I'm nuts.

lol, yes. My mother was "puppy sitting" and I called to see how they were doing but she didn't answer the phone. So, I left a message for my pups. When my mother called me back she said every time she'd play the message they would start barking!

Yes. When my husband and I both worked long hours I would call them during the day just so they could hear my voice. Plus it comforted me as well. Now we have "call notes" instead of an answering machine so they couldn't hear it even if we did call home. But when one of us is out of town and we call home, we will let the cats listen to their voice over the phone. It's funny to watch the expression on the cat's faces and to see them trying to rub all over the handset.

I have not left them a specific message but when leaving a message for someone else at home, I've included a hello for my cats and dogs, plus a mom loves you message to them.

I agree with Courtney. Isn't this sick of us? When I travel, my husband does the same - - phone to dog's ear! God, what would we do with our lives without our pets?

Yes, I've done this. I think the sound of my voice helps my cats feel more comfortable when I've been away for awhile.

I have never called the answering machine but my husband "puts the dog on the phone" all the time. Sassy LOVES it. Her tell never stops when she hears my voice. My Rottie Diesel looks in to the phone as if I am somehow going to pop out of the phone. Need to get it on video :-)

I have left messages for my pets so they could hear my voice and have also left messages at my parents where I first talk to their puppy! When they get home and play the message, they say Casey's head turns from side to side when he hears me speaking, so I'm sure he's enjoying his messages while they are out.

I have in the past, but can't now that we have voicemail instead of an answering machine. If I am out of town and my husband is home, I say hello to each of the babies.

I also remember practicing a speech and recording it to listen to how it sounded and my dog, Sasha looking at the tape recorder in wonder...
