Those of us who own, or have had cats can vouch for the therapeutic value of a cat's purr but just recently I wanted to know what a cat would think of a device that mimics their contented purr.
In a totally unscientific study involving my two elderly cats, one of whom is stone deaf, I switched on the purr generator to gauge their response.
Toby the deaf cat just went about his business, any hopes that a stray megahertz would entice a reaction were soon dashed.
Tom on the other hand was actually pretty engaged and seemed to love it once he realised where the sound was coming from and from a distance of 10 metres he actually came and sat next to my laptop for quite some time listening to his artificial buddy.
Given that Tom would in no way win any awards for the world's most sociable feline and has been known to hiss at many a perceived threat....dare I say....I think he actually liked it!
