why does my cat coo like a dove

It happens every day. I get home and IБm greeted with a Бrrroooowe, brrring, brupppp, brupppp! Б or some variation of similar noises. No, I donБt have an old-fashioned telephone or my iPhone set to some nostalgic ring.

My other cat, Gabby, is excited to see me but remains silent as Merritt trills away. Maybe heБll give me a soft purr as he cranes his head up for a head pet but thatБs about it. So, why does only one of my cats do this cat trilling noise? And why do cats make this funny noise in the first place? Why do cats trill? I had a hunch that cat trilling was a positive sound.
