And There Were Five: A Cat's Purr

Vanna T. Cat: Always good for a purr
Socheata, now in her twenties, had never heard a cat purr.

So I held Vanna, who just has to be picked up to purr, to her ear. She was surprised at the sound.

"What do you think it means?" I asked

"I think Vanna is hungry," she said.

Later, I asked a Cambodian teacher about purring.

He, too, had never heard a cat purr, nor did he realize that they did.

Cambodians just don't like cats he explained. Mostly that is true.

 They don't know what they're missing.
