Woke up a few minutes ago to check my email, got (barely) connected here at home via wireless, and had to share this about tatsuko_shikibu. Seriously, she's purring more loudly than the sound of the furnace fan, or cars passing by outside, or even my typing. She's sitting on the floor near my feet (I'm using a little adjustable laptop table from Levenger to write this, so she can get close), not even on the little pile of catnip. Just sitting with her legs under her, purring her brains out. The octagonal beam of sun hasn't yet touched the floor (the sun is still pretty low this time of year, though I'm grateful it shines so much during the winter here in Kansas - and it's shining for a minute more every day now!), so it's not that her fur is starting to bake in the sunshine. Which, of course, is one of her favorite hobbies.

No, she's just a really happy kitty. Go figure! I love my kitty - did I mention?

I wonder if you can get a sore throat from purring too loudly?

Chris

Funny -- my youngest, Attila, is doing the same thing right now. She's a very loud purrer. And the older cat, Aja, almost never purrs, and when she does it's barely audible. She's plenty happy -- but instead of purring, she kneads and sighs. Weird.

That's the way sanju_devil_cat purrs, too: Almost completely silent. When tatsuko_shikibu was a kitten and slept under the bed-covers, she purred so loudly we couldn't sleep until she settled in for the night.

All we need to do to solve any problems of passive solar thermal collection is look at cats. They have it down.

Huh, someone should do a university study on this ;-)
