What's your cat's purr telling you?

What’s your cat telling you when it is purring?

You might think: it’s content and happy!

However, this might not always be the case. Cats’ purrs are definitely a form of communication, but till now, there is no definitive answer as to what they are trying to convey.

Some research shows that kittens purr to help their mothers lactate, hence they might purr to signal to their humans that it is mealtime. In fact, there may be a frequency in a cat’s purr that mimics a baby’s distress cry, which we are sensitive to.

Some cats may also purr if they are nervous, stressed or afraid. It’s speculated to be a self-healing behaviour that helps them cope. Some even say that the vibrations from purring can help strengthen the cats’ bones. The frequency of cats’ purrs is also soothing for humans too. Doesn’t it seem like a superpower?

But a good measure for figuring out what your cat is really trying to tell you is to check for body language as well. A purring cat with a relaxed body language is most likely a happy, content one.
