Always I find my cats purr when they find nothing to do,I think they are enjoy the life with us, they content and happy and so they purr, but someone tell me it' wrong they said the cats purr coz they are tense? I confused, who can tell me the answer...

Hi, the way I always understood is that cats purr because they are happy and content and not tense. I have seen my own cat tense and he was not purring but hissing,swatting ,growling and had his back arched like he was geting ready to attack.That's a new one...cats purring because they are tense...not likely.

Hi there Jimmy Sun. In most cases they purr for themselves rather than to please us - the reasons may consist of fear as they try to relax them self with purring, or when they are happy (that's when you actually pet them and they start purring all of a sudden).
