Did you ever wonder what sounds your cat makes and what they mean??? We will talk today about the closed mouth sounds of which there are two sounds. They are the purr and the trill/chirrup/greeting meow. Purring has fascinated people for a very long time. It is a monotone sound made by cats in a wide variety of situations. The common feature appears to be cat-to-cat or cat-to-human contact. Cats can also purr in extreme pain. Some think it may be the cat’s attempt to calm itself. The trill/chirrup/greating meow is, as its name suggests, uttered on contact with a known and liked cat or person. Dr. Campolongo is very good at immitating it. Ask her next time you come to Rouge River Animal Hospital.
