Your Cat: What Does Its Purr Mean? (video)

Cats are cunning; they like to control their environment. Cats dont purr for other cats; they purr for people.

A study in England tries to sort out purrs: those that show contentment; those that say Im hungry. Feed me.

Do you need a computer to show the wavelengths or can you tell the difference just by listening to your cat?

Cats also purr when they are sick and it is supposed to help heal them in some miraculous way.

I once listed "helping cats purr" as a skill on a job application.
