Tatsuko purrs so loudly that you can probably hear her outside

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?
