Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, August 10, 2021

Until recently, I had no idea that cats could eat and purr simultaneously.

But they can; I’ve seen/heard it. I guess the feline physiological capacity for purr-fection has a multi-tasking element to it. Besides, what better time to express your contentment than when you’re filling your gullet?

  1. One of mine purrs a bit while eating her favorite foods. As the article mentions, they purr when happy and also during times of stress, almost like a calming agent.

  2. The particular cat I observed tends to be pretty vocal anyway. So I chalked up her behavior to an inability to ever shut up…
