Chris has never seemed to master the fine art of purring. Since we adopted him there was always something off about his purr. Occasionally, I will hear something from Chris that resembles a purr but mostly it sounds more like heavy breathing.
I don’t know. Maybe his purrer is broken. What do you think?
maybe he is really related with phenny? he can not bark , he shrieks…
Probably a distant relative. 🙂
Come on Chris you can do it, come on, almost. Maybe not
Our purrer is Rumpy Bump. He joins a meow and purr as one and knows he will get those enviable head rubs if he does. Miss Fitz just started purring this year. Only for Dad the rest of us still get, ouchie whacks

Purring is like a huge compliment. 🙂
First rule … don’t listen to another cat with one of your own in the room.
I’d say it is a more fully throated version of a purr. 🙂
I can see why that would be a problem.
Well, I think it’s a combo…..but maybe you should just call it a “distinctive purr”…….LOL
Chris is unique in so many ways so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
Chris purrs with an accent!
That’s one way to think of it. 🙂
He sounds like my Millie when he purrs. 🙂
I wonder if it’s genetic.
That is very unusual! It almost sounds like a purr.
I hear big cats don’t purr but I would imagine if a lion tried to purr it would sound like that.
Definitely a broken purr-machine…
Love and licks,
At least this way you can distinguish your cats by purr more easily. My sister had learned to distinguish between my (now late) Tom and my Kessy on the phone, because both purred in different ways. Well, she is a musician and has a fine ear, so I should not be that surprised.
Chris is easy to identify with my eyes closed in more than one way, If a cat gets on the bed and walks over me like I am not there then it’s Chris.
All my cats did that. But the Tom was the heaviest.
If his body vibrates while he does it, it’s a purr.
I’ll have to pay more attention.
Just put your hand or cheek close to his chest
Did you ever find an answer? My cat does this…
No, but I will guess that this is his version of a purr.
My ginger sounds exactly the same
