Cheetah Purr, Domestic Cat Purr, Leopard Saw — 10 Comments

  1. I find cats purring fascinating, I could listen all day, I just love the sounds cats make, purrs, meows, growls, hisses, all are more beautiful to my ears than any music ever written by any composer.

    • The purr is said to help heal an injured cat. It is a reason why cat’s purr. I wonder if because of that it also has a beneficial effect on people. I wonder if there is something about the purr that tweaks something in the brain that makes us feel better.

  2. The first time i have heard a Cheetah purring. As for the cat’s purring, not much to differentiate from the Cheetah if a person is “Blindfolded” and listening.The Cheetah’s tone seems slightly higher in decibel level as it is a larger animal.

  3. I was curious how cats purr. This is from Animal Planet.com:
    “It turns out that cats have special wiring! The wiring travels from the brain to the muscles in the voice box, and this wiring is able to vibrate the muscles so that they act as a valve for air flowing past the voice box. The muscles work both during inhalation and exhalation, which creates the impression that cats can purr continuously. The air passes through the valve, which opens and closes rapidly to create the purring sound.”

    I love to hear cats purr. It’s like music! Thanks!!!

    • I thought the cheetah was gorgeous. He is being stroked and purring just like any domestic cat. Cheetahs are quite friendly, shy large wild cats. His purr is awesome.
