My name is G.P. and my sister's name is Arrow.
We are two 13 year old Tuxedo cats (that means black and white you know)We have noticed something peculiar and are wondering if any of you other cats out there have experienced something similiar.
Whenever we are in the same room, and our litterbox-sifter pets one of us, something strange happens. We both are equiped we the "insta-purr" feature. We purr as soon as any worthy human pets us. But the weird part is that as soon as one of us purrs, the other also experiences the uncontrolable urge to purr.
Yesterday I just came inside after fighting with another cat, and believe me I DID NOT feel like purring. But as soon as our human petted my sister, I found MYSELF purring uncontrolably. Its as if one purr causes some sort of "resonant" purr in the other.
Could it be that after living together for 13 years, ours purr frequencies our "tuned for harmonics"? Like if you stike a tuning fork and hold it close to a similar tuning fork, a sound is induced in the second fork.
If any of you cats have heard anything about this, please let us know.
