Domestic cats have three common vocalization skills:
1. The Meow
2. The Purr
3. The Hiss
In this article we be discussing the “Purr” vocalization skill of the cat. All (greater and lesser) cats purr, which shows that they all come from common ancestors about 40 million years ago. The domestic cat is considered a lesser cat.
How Cats Purr –
My research has turn up the most democratic explanation for purring, which is that purring involves activation of nervousness within the voice box and the movement of the diaphragm. The vocal cords vibrate in response to these nerve impulses and the diaphragm pushing and pull the air over the vocal cords. The air flow over the vibrating vocal cords produces a soft vibrating sound, which is in the low-frequency range of 25 to 150 Hz. The purring occurs on the inhale and exhale of breath giving the impression of a continuous sound. The cat purrs only when it wants to because the energizing of these nerves is strictly voluntary on the cats part. Researchers believe that this action is initiated by the cat’s central nervous system.
Why Cats Purr -
Cat owners appear to adore that their cat purrs for them. But, since it takes energy for cats to purr, nature would not allow this unique feature of purring to last for 40 million years unless purring served a more important purpose. Researchers have found that the low vibration of the purr, 25 to 150 Hz, has an effect on healing the cat bones and tissue. Cats have abut 10% of the veterinarians visitations for broken bones that dogs have. This might be an indication the cat has something special going for it.
Cats purr when:
1. When relaxed, show contentment
2. Express pleasure
3. Giving birth
4. Kitten can purr astatine 2 days old
5. Mother and Kitten communicate during nursing by purring
6. When sick or injured
7. Near death
Your cat’s purring can tell you if your cat is relaxed, content, sick, or injured, if you listen and know your cat you can interpret this vocalization. So, take the purring as one of your cats communicating skills and enjoy it with the true understanding of what it is.
