Why do humans enjoy it when cats purr? I love the responses. Both of our cats will purr when they’re feeling contented and cozy. I often think about the purported healing effect, especially when I’m feeling sick or lousy. (I think I first learned about it Oryx and Crake, but I didn’t realize at the time there was some scientific basis for the idea.)
