Purring is a pretty common sound that cats make, especially if they are totally relaxed or feeling affectionate. The general consensus is that cats purr when they are content, but they also purr to communicate a lot of different emotions like urgency or apprehension.
The kind of purr frequency depends on what kind of cat, but domestic cats purr at a frequency of 18 to 20 Hz. These vibrations have been studied and are believed to have healing properties, which may be why cats purr in the first place.
