Yah to that article.  From a physiologico-evolutionary point of view, cats probably purr because it makes them heal faster and better, with less inflamation.  Cats put themselves through an enormous amount of wear and tear, and their habitual activities are especially taxing on stretchy connective tissues.  I mean, dogs exert themselves, but not in the same range of ways that cats do.

Leopards and jaguars are particularly awesome, in what they can do.  The big cats can't purr nearly as well as the small cats can -- last I heard, the consensus is that the big ones can only purr while exhaling, and that they don't do it anywhere near as frequently as the small cats, especially once they reach adulthood.  A lot of zoologists and trivia books insist that the big cats can't purr at all.  Of course, a lot of zoologists insist that camels don't spit.

Driving miss Ramona to the vet. Between her being old and slow, and my being slow from getting cut on - it was the OJ Simpson chase all over again this morning in the pig pen. The others didn't even bother to flee. They  just stood around watching. I almost think I heard a KTLA chopper in the distance.

Greyson died tonight. I don't know if he had a stroke or what, but by the time I got him to the vet's it was too late.

18 is a respectable age for a cat.
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

I'm so sorry, storm:(

18 is a very respectable age. I couldn't wish for more from my children kitties.

Tunie and Pepper give you big paw hugs, too.*hug*

Holy shit, G.  :hug:

I'm not surprised at all that he clocked in that many years in your care. 18 is a very, very good run.

Oh  :(  :hug:
Cause you're so beautiful
Like a tree
Or a high-class prostitute
You're so beautiful
Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job

Sorry, Storm. Greyson was lucky to have you.

It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.
