The cat purr: what it really means and the eight conditions under which it is heard — 4 Comments

  1. I have also heard that some cats purr to comfort themselves. Seems sad if it’s true, having to comfort one’s self.

  2. I was at a rehab center for wildlife and met a mountain lion who liked his ears rubbed, as I was rubbing his ears, his lips curled back and hi looked at me and purred. I had a cat once who did the very same thing when he wanted me to massage his gums. So that’s what I did-massage his gums. His purr got louder and louder and his eyes closed. The guide who was with me was petting the cat’s back and was dead white when I looked at him. It didn’t dawn on me until then that I had all my fingers in a wild animal’s mouth. I cherish that moment in time when I was accepted by a wild creature to give him some pleasure. His purr was awesome!
