why does my cat purr when she sees me

Cats purr, as the meow to communicate. Purring doesn't always mean the cat is happy. It's a type of language for the cat. There has been research into the way cat's communicate with their owners and how the different types of meows and purrs evoke reactions in their owners, ultimately helping the cat to communicate her needs and wants and getting them met. The pitch of the sound will evoke certain emotional responses within cat owners to express whether the cat's needs are urgent or a signal of being contended. (1)(2)
Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is also known as the purring disease; is an illness that can be fatal to cats and one of the features is that the cat will continue to purr up until the moment of death or last consciousness before death.


The purring may also be more noticeable due to chronic airway congestion. (3)(4) My suggestion would be, that there would be no upper limit in a healthy cat. Some cats will be more inclined to purr more than others, for many reasons to long to list here. If your cat is not when he purrs, has, difficulty breathing or sounds congested, does not have any, it would most likely be safe to say your cat is healthy.


Interestingly there is some research into cat's purring and links to increasing the pet owners. Due to the frequency of a cat's purr, resonating with the human body, a form of entrainment that is similar to the effects of soothing music on the body that is discussed here (1) University of Sussex News (2) THE FELINE BEHAVIOR SERIES Paul D.

He was super friendly, rolling onto his back for me to pet his belly and rubbing against me like crazy. But after I brought him inside, he seemed fearful. It s been three days and he hasn t shown any aggression towards me but for the most part, he stays underneath my bed.


At random times during the day, I ll find him lounging on it and at night, he willingly hops up onto it and sleeps next to me, all curled up in a ball. The most confusing thing about all of this is tue fact that whenever I walk into the same room as him, he ll start to purr (even if he s under the bed), and will continue doing so the entire time I m in his presence. Does that mean he finds me comforting? Or is that just wishful thinking on my part?
