Why do cats trill? Why do cats purr? Why are feline mews sounds so much more fun to us, while chirps and meows are for the birds?
When speaking of feline sound it is quite common for a person to refer to purring and chirping. While there is no doubt that cats purr and chirp and many do have the sound associated with them they are still quite different sounds and should not be lumped in as one when discussing cats.
Purring is defined as an inhalation sound made by the cat during relaxation or a time when it is feeling content. Usually a cat purrs for reasons of comfort and relaxation. The sounds are generally longer than the breathing that humans do and are usually less than a hundred Hertz. (This is the lowest frequency of sound that humans can hear.) Purring may come in other than a continuous form such as a ‘meow’ or when the cat is relaxed (as in sleeping) or when the cat is aroused in an emotional state. A cat in its normal state of mind will purr to themselves when relaxed, for instance, while sleeping.
Although the cat purrs, it is true that they purr for the same reason that people purr and we also are able to purr for various reasons. When a person is relaxed the muscles that make sounds are able to be released. In order to be able to purr, a person is required to be relaxed and breathing regularly, just as a cat would be in order to purr. A person can learn to purr by taking a deep breath and relaxing, then the muscles that make sounds can be ‘let out’. Purring is not usually loud or as well defined as other sounds a person makes and it is more like one’s natural breathing than it is that of a cat.
There is no known cause for purring. The ability to purr, however, is present in cats, including deaf cats. Purring in cats has been found to be more common in females, as is the case with humans.
Purring in cats may have no purpose, but it may serve a function of emotional support. A cat is able to purr in a similar fashion to humans and may also give the cat an opportunity to release stress or may simply be a purr of joy.
Cat purring is more of a psychological release or comfort to a person rather than a true form of communication. Cat purring is a pleasant sound, but it is difficult to decipher that cats are purring for any sort of verbal communication.
While purring may not provide the cats with any real benefits, it can be a soothing sound for the person. It may have the cat releasing his or her pent-up stress in a more indirect manner. Purring is not specific in it’s purr and does not follow any specific vocalization patterns. This lack of specific purring makes it hard to decipher what it means.
The human body produces a similar sound as the cat. Some people find that purring relaxes them. A child may find his or her mother’s purring to be comforting. While purring may not mean anything specific to the cat, purring can be soothing to the cat’s owner.
Cats purr because they like the feeling of purring in their own mouth. In cats, purring does not require any specific actions to be performed by the cat to cause the purring.
Like the cat, the human body makes a sound as if it were purring when it inhales and exhales through the mouth. This is the process that occurs in all respiratory systems, even those of a cat.
This type of purring is not a direct indicator of anything for a cat. However, this type of purring in the human body has similar effects in soothing people.
