Is it Purring or Heavy Breathing?

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?

Was That a Purr I Heard?

Before I start this story. I want to mention a couple of unrelated things. First, I want to wish all American veterans a Happy Veterans Day and a big thanks for your service. Second, I want to mention Chris’s Facebook page got over 1000 likes since my last post. Thank you Ellen Pilch from 15 and Meowing for like #999 and Kjelle Bus Möller from Kjelle Bus aka Charlie Rascal for #1000.

Cat Chris on my lap

The other day Chris was lying on my lap and I was shocked to hear the faint sound of a purr. For Chris, that is amazing because he doesn’t purr. He tries to purr but it always comes out as heavy breathing.

The joke around here is that his purrer is broken but I’m pretty sure that what I heard was an actual purr. Could this be an early sign that Chris is turning into a normal cat? If so, he still has a long way to go.
