Did you know how your cat purrs?
Purring does not originate in the cat’s throat; instead that sound is considered to originate in the animal’s blood system. The actual sound is the result of a vibration motion that arises from the wall of one of the major blood vessels in the chest area. These vibrations are transmitted to the upper air passages of the cat resulting in a purr.
