Your Letters

Snoopy Cat

Dear Feline Friends,

I am going to be 1 year old in March. I live with my aunt & uncle who have an elderly couple as caregivers. Nice folks. But they seem to think I have a problem. If they pick me up I start purring really loud. I do it beautifully. But then I feel forced to also meow loudly as though I am unhappy to being petted. But I keep on purring. I gotta do both, until they put me down.

My aunt sits on the female's lap and purrs. My uncle will purr as he stands by a chair and the male pats his back. But neither ever meows at them for any reason. Am I strange or what? Why do I do both at once?

It seems even odd to me that I have this love/hate relationship to getting attention. Do I need help? Or am I simply trying not to make my aunt & uncle jealous of all the attention that is showered upon me because I'm so cute & cuddley with my white paws & throat & belly contrasting with my long tiger/tabby striped coat and the adorable white streak on my nose and they are just an ordinary plain tabby/ tiger and a close-to-being-called ugly tortiseshell.

What do you think? Am I a split personality? I feel healthy and very happy and play rowdy games and catch balls and eat good. Could my nickname (Snoopy) have affected me? My proper name is Charles Albert Thomas The Cat.

Well there are some cats who meow and purr at the same time when they are cuddled. A sort of extra excitement thing. But sometimes a cat will purr and meow because they're feeling a little bit uncomfortable. So it depends on which you are. It might be worth your humans taking you for a check up to the vets to make sure there is nothing causing you any pain. If there isn't then you're just excitable and it's nothing to worry about.
