If you are a cat lover you have probably always wondered why cats purr. Cats tend to purr when they are content about something. They will typically purr when their owner is petting them lovingly or before they fall asleep. But it has been proven that cats also purr when they become scared or feel threatened. One interesting way to consider it is to think about why humans smile. Sometimes we smile when we are nervous or scared, and this is how cats use their ability to purr. Cats also tend to purr when they are giving birth or are sick or injured. Purring conveys a number of different types of emotions just like smiling does for us. A purr not only helps our cats to feel better but they also help us feel better. The sound comforts us when we need it most, just like it does for our kitties.
Our pets can be interesting and extremely important to our lives. They are a part of our families so we should take the best possible care of them as possible. If it were the other way around you know that they would want to take care of us so it is the least we can do!
