The 1st time I hear ET purr on day 2 after I brought him home, I thought he had breathing problem, lol. Then when I brought him in for his vaccination, I asked the vet to check his breathing and mentioned about the sound I hear. He was cleared and then I found out, he was actually purring, lol.
Anyway, ET doesn't purr in the day, no matter how much I massage him. But he purrs when night falls the moment he sees me, without any stimulation, no petting, no massage. He is a timid boy, but he does purr, but its soft purr, audible, not very loud and not very long. Whenever I hear him purr, I pet or massage him, he will stop purring. Don't understand why, so if I want him to continue purring, don't pet him, lol.
