One of the greatest sounds on earth, for me, is the sound of a cat purring. It never fails to make me happy.
When Latte and Liger are ecstatically happy, their purring sounds like our outboard motor, set on idle, in calm water. I LOVE that sound.
(The outboard motor I am talking about is in the photo above.)
This is one reason why I am a cat-person. Dogs have wonderful qualities, but barking vs. purring?I'm going with the motorboat.
[Lest you dog-lovers feel slighted, there is no need. Our friend Joanne came over the other night with her awesome Corgi (named Beamer). Beamer walked right into the house, and we gave him snacks; he did tricks and sat on the couch with me. And Beverly (Karyn's Yorkie from NY) came for a visit, and had snacks AND used her potty-mat, in our house. We like dogs; we LOVE cats.]
