And he LOVES it...he said ALMOST the exact same thing that you said. We went on a trip and so I left the cats with my mom and since we got home late I was too tired to drive up to mom's to get my cats so the next morning my fiance woke me up saying "ummm can you please go get the kitties now? Its lonely here without them and I miss them."
I asked him if he wanted to get a dog and he said that could wait and he always tells his friends about our "cool cats"
my BF was a dog man when i met him, then when he met Sabastian he loved him right away, then when we moved in together we adopted Nipper, and just recently got Princess, and i can honestly say he spoils them with love and attention just as much as me....if not more.
as for purring, all of my cats purr, usually when they sleep on us, next to us, or when we are petting them. both sabastian and nipper enjoy catnip, and princess is still too young.
