What’s a cat without a purr? Definitely not a cat. We’ve all heard a cat purr at one point or the other, and to us, that just means they’re having fun, happy or comfy and while that’s usually true, it is not always the case. Purring is generally known as one of the distinct sound cats make, probably the second most famous after the meow. It happens by some vibrations in their throats and it also happens that humans love the purr. This purr is also noted to be one of the few cat behaviors that are exhibited from birth and they carry throughout their entire lives. According to many experts cats purr to express many different emotions including joy, stress and any other needs. Purring is also known to be a coping mechanism cats use to calm themselves down, scientists have observed cats start purring during labor. So, before you conclude that your cat is only purring because everything is purrfect, you might want to look around and make sure that it’s not trying to tell you something else and that everything is actually fine.
