    Why doesn't my cat purr?

    well, I have three cats. One purrs whenever I say his name, one purrs when he cuddles you (only when he wants to go outside), and the last one never does. He vibrates as if he's purring but I never hear a sound. He is also the only one who meows and talks, is that related?

    It sounds like your cat is purring, it's just so quiet you can't hear it. We've got one cat like that. I can only hear his purr if I put my ear on his body. Even then it's barely audible, but I can hear it. If you're feeling the vibration, my guess is he's a silent purrer. I don't know why some cat's purrs are so quiet or silent, but some are.
