No Purring??

Lexie doesn't purr at all. Even when I know she's happy. anyone else have a cat like this? Buttercup is a big fan of purring on the other hand.

Many years ago I had a cat who purred, but you couldn't hear her. You had to touch her chest or throat to feel the vibration of her purr. Some cats just don't purr loudly.

Bob and Taz are as John described, you have to feel their throats to see if they are purring. Even if I put my ear right up to Taz's head I can barely hear him.

Juno rarely purrs and when she does it is very quiet. She is the first cat I have ever had that hardly purrs, at first I thought she didn't like living with us. She's just a crabby little kitty with attitude.

Rookie never purred either (at least audibly), but Murphy purrs like a Harley.
