Experts have been debating for years the reason behind a cat's purr. Are they feeling contented, and friendly, are they hurt, are they self-soothing or just plain happy to be a cat? I certainly have not discovered an answer but instead pose another question....how many of us cat mums and dads out there purr to our kitties? I admit it, I purr for the boys when we are cuddling so they know I'm feeling the same as they are. I also murp, chirp and coo and basically imitate any sound that they make.
|Did you hear a cat down there?|
|Your accent is improving mum!|
|Talk to me mummy I'm listening....|
|Mum purred me to sleep :-)|
I'm not entirely sure what I'm saying to them but the response always seems to be positive :-)
