Since getting my cat Memphis in early September, I have been calmly and patiently awaiting his first purr. It took over a month, and the addition of a kitten, for me to hear his first meow. Recently, I think I have been hearing purring when I hold him. He used to not like getting held, but now he'll rub against my legs to let me know he wants to be a space ship. When I put my ear against his back while holding him, I can hear very low rumbling. Is this purring, or some sort of loud breathing? My kitten Tails purrs loud enough to be heard from another room, and these are the only two cats I've owned so I don't know what the range of purrs is.
