Pyr purring
« on: September 06, 2008, 09:00:47 am »
Jenny does this adorable thing that I swear sounds like a cat purring...she puts her head in my lap and when I scratch her under the chin (like a cat), she makes this groan/moan/purr sound. It's so cute!  :D

That's adorable!  I think you need to record it and post it for us to hear too.   ;) ;D

Phoebe makes what we call "piggy noises" when we pet her under her chin, and she has done that since we brought her home.

I know what you're talking about!  When I met Champ's mommmy, she made a purring sound when I pet her.  At first I didn't know what to make of it, but the breeder just laughed and said that it was the sound she makes she's happy to be petted.  Whew! Because, I thought she was growling at me! 

Champ doesn't purr, but loves to cuddle and press his head into your chest.  When you snuggle with him, he always lets out this burp/sigh sound....sound s gross, but it's really very endearing!!! :)
