Purring is a cat's way of smiling.
Understand: the longer the purr, the wider the grin!
It is unequivocal that no two purrs are alike. And, there is no coxing a coy or reluctant purr. Every cat possess its own unique purr which is to be used at its sole discretion.
......Deep and rolling....crinkling and tinny.....sputtering.....or, hypnotically paced like a slow metronome punctuated with a tiny drop of drool.......such are the purrs we own.
A purr is a cat's calling card.
In the grip of sweet slumber, My Own knows the cat who purrs on her pillow long before her eyes open to behold. Before the sun rises, the designate cat drifts in; softly purring in cadenced code - "Dawn's heavenly appearance draws nigh - and our bellies must be filled ere the sun rises. Arise! Arise!"
Make no mistake, "the Purr" is a subliminal order to surrender and obey. Its seductive nature has never been known to fail.
