Merlin the Cat Sets New World Record for Loudest Purr

Standard

I thought my guys were pretty loud (you can hear them purr across the room!), but this cutey has them beat!

Merlin the Cat Sets New World Record for Loudest Purr (ABC News)

Merlin the cat is giving dishwashers strong competition in the noise department with his record-setting purr.

The black-and-white house cat belonging to Tracy Westwood of Torquay, England, registered a purr measured at 67.8 decibels, setting the record for the loudest purr by a domestic cat, Guinness World Records announced on Wednesday.

Merlin narrowly beat the previous record of 67.68 decibels set in 2011 by Smokey, another British cat.

Loudest Cat in the World?.Merlin, a housecat from Britain, has set a new world record for the loudest purr by a domestic cat. According to Guinness World Records, Merlin's purr...

Merlin, a housecat from Britain, has set a new world record for the loudest purr by a domestic cat. According to …

The average house cat’s purr reportedly measures 25 decibels.

Merlin, who is 13 years old, can be so loud that Westwood says she occasionally has to repeat herself in conversation. In a preview clip for “Cats Make You Laugh Out 2,” Westwood said her cat’s purr has previously been measured even louder.

“When you’re watching films, you have to turn the telly up or put him out of the room. If he’s eating he’ll purr loudly. I can hear him when I’m drying my hair,” she said in a news release from Guinness. “If he’s cleaning, he gets louder. And sometimes if the telephone rings, I do get people asking me what’s that noise in the background. I tell them it’s the cat, but I don’t know if they believe me.”

Westwood adopted Merlin from a local shelter.

There was no indication that Merlin’s loud purr is due to a medical problem.

 

 

 

 

Grieving Mama Cat Who Lost All Three Babies Matched With Three Abandoned Kittens

Standard

This story just hit my heart on so many levels and I had to share it. I hope you get feels from it as well. So special…

From the Huffington Post

written by

This is a true story of a very depressed and grieving mama cat, brought back to a happy maternal state thanks to some very loving people involved in the rescue and foster care of cats, complete with gorgeous photos of this miraculous match. (Here and at the end.)

2015-04-29-1430266090-6042028-MikeytheCat5.jpg

Mikey, an eight month old cat, was inconsolable. She had three kittens, born too early. They were weak and one by one, they died. Mikey’s owner Hillary tried everything she could think of to save the babies.

After the last of Mikey’s kitten’s passed away the cat was searching frantically for her offspring, acted very depressed, and her breasts were engorged with milk.

Watching her cat suffer, Hillary was desperate for help and called Dori’s Darlings, a cat rescue organization run by Dori Hillman in Houston.

This is where Amanda Lowe comes in. She is a foster mother to abandoned kittens, through Dori’s Darlings. Just days before Mikey lost her last kitten, Amanda received three baby kittens to foster that were just a few days old, that still had their umbilical cords attached.

Amanda and another foster, Kelli Nicole, provided around the clock care for the three kittens, who she named Teddy, Abby, and Lily for four days. That’s when Amanda received the call from Dori about Mikey losing her brood of kittens.

Reaching out to Hillary immediately, Amanda offered to bring the kittens to Mikey the cat that same evening. After a conversation, they decided Mikey could make it through the night and Amanda went to her first thing the next morning.

Before showing Mikey the kittens, Amanda, who says she talks to cats and animals all the time, told Mikey how sorry she was about her babies.

Speaking to her in a soothing voice, Amanda told Mikey the cat, “I have some babies for you so you can be a mommy again.”

Amanda said she could tell Mikey liked her and trusted her, and then she placed the kittens in front of the mama cat.

Immediately, Mikey started licking them, grabbing them, hugging them. Around 15 minutes later, the cat spread out and rolled over giving the three kittens a nursing invitation.

Lily was the first to latch on.

After two hours, Amanda knew that with Mikey cuddling her new kittens, bathing them, and falling asleep with them, that she was leaving a very happy mama cat and giving the abandoned kittens a new home. She said they even looked like they belonged to one another.

As Amanda explained, the kittens are more important for Mikey, as lots of kittens are raised by human foster moms. “This was just an awful thing she went through (losing all of her babies) and this will be healing for her,” Amanda explained.

Here are some beautiful photos of this heartwarming rescue operation, all taken by Kelli Nicole, who is a professional photographer.
