Is it normal for a cat to growl like a dog?

My cat is strange. If you walk to close to her she growls. If you pet her at the wrong place she growls. I find this to be very strange. I have never before seen a cat that growls...Anybody out there have a cat that growls? Please tell me that I am not alone. Or if your cat has weird traits too, feel free to share.

My cat does and always has. I think every cat can or does. Some just don't do it often or it sounds different becuse of they're "voice".

My cat does have a loud voice. So I guess that makes it really easy to hear it. Thanks for your response.

My cat Spot does growl when you touch her in a way that I think is painful for her. That's why I just pet her head because that's what she likes. When she likes to be petted on her tummy, she rolls around. LOL.
