My cat is purring very oddly.

by Giaa

I'm not sure what's with her, she's purring a lot, without being pet or anything. She's purring like a motor, and often she lifts her head up and meows, I went over to her and her throat seems tight, and when I tried to touch her throat she backed away.

I've had my cat since I was in 2nd grade, I am now 13.

Is it because she is old? Is she sick?

Answer by Kate
hi well it could be because she is sick that is always a possibility. purring is not just a sign of being content it can also be a sign of distress or pain . The cat purrs to try and calm themselves down etc.

i always say that if you have any doubts or worries then I would always take her to the vets for a check up just to be on the safe side.

best wishes and i hope all is well
