Cats’ tendency to purr when they are comfortable

Have you ever noticed how your feline friend starts purring up a storm when they’re feeling cozy and content? It’s like music to our ears, isn’t it? But have you ever wondered why cats purr in the first place?

Well, purring is not just a sign of happiness for cats. It can also indicate that they are feeling relaxed, secure, and even trying to self-soothe in stressful situations. Some experts even believe that purring can have healing properties, as the frequency of a cat’s purr has been shown to promote bone strength and aid in the healing of injuries.

So, the next time your kitty curls up in your lap and starts purring away, take it as a compliment! They feel safe and loved in your presence, and that’s a special bond worth cherishing.
