eHZJrx7RZ2wI realize that I find the purr of my kittens very relaxing, but is it true that they have real healing powers?
An interesting article on the topic:
What I do believe though is that they can detect when someone is ill or in pain I've heard many stories about that. And actually I cut my finger really bad the other day and Eliot will usually munch on my hands and fingers all the time, But I don't know if he can smell it or what but once he noticed I got cut he doesn't bite me at all he will just lick!
Anonymous:I didn't know some of the big cats purr! Thanks. Now I wonder which healing effect is more efficient, big cat purring or domestic cat purring.
Joleen Cohen And he would purr really loud, every time I had a headache I would let him sit on my head or neck and just purr away and it would be gone just like that!!Whoa this is the first time I hear about a real healing effect like this! I wonder if I can get my cats do the same when I have a headache. Thanks for sharing really! It's nearly impossible to believe in. If I had read about it in a newspaper I'd actually have doubted that was a true story.
Joleen CohenWhat I do believe though is that they can detect when someone is ill or in painI believe that too! My cat is usually affectionate but whenever I'm feeling a bit unwell she will curl up on my chest purring her lungs out! I might not feel better right away but it certainly soothes me a lot
PradaOf course if there's a purring cat by your side you won't be instantly healed from all known diseases (wouldn't that be cool? haha)And yes, it would be awesome! Although I believe cats do have that power, except that they just don't use it. lol
I do believe they can know. Eliot is more depending on me since I am basically his mother so he counts on me for protection and is less worried Linux was very protective possibly because I was also very young, They are completely different breeds too so its understandable, But he does know when someone is sick and will change his ways and be as nice as he possibly can when you're not feeling well.
LOL I'm getting tears in my eyes talking about him, sorry
What I think is that yes, they purr but we can hardly ever hear that because we don't have big cats as pets! =) As to lions and tigers, I think their purrs would be so loud that we'd mistake it for roaring. =D
