    BBC NEWS | Science & Environment | Cats 'exploit' humans by purring


    anyone else read this?? i think it's hilarious! we've been contemplating changing our cat's, neeps, name to "Schemer".

    although we think bubs is the more likely culprit for this sort of shinanigans as she's a siamese.. neeps looks more like a scheming and demise plotting kitty.

    So that's what that purr is for! And I thought they just loved me :eek:

    I love the cat in the video, obviously has his human well trained.

    Whenever we've hear that chirpy noise we've said that Cleo is at "maximum purr". I thought she was just really happy! Turns out she was just manipulating me, the little tinker! ;););)

    I though Charlie was a very happy cat as he is always purring very loudly. Now I know he's just a demanding wotsit
