    Aww! I didn’t know that either. Bunnies can purr too though, so I’m wondering if most fuzzies can?

    Hmm, so I decided to look into it, from The Wikipedia:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purr

    “Although purring is commonly associated with [cats], other animals such as raccoons purr. Other purring animals are Guinea pigs in heat, rabbits, squirrels, ring-tailed lemurs, elephants while eating, and gorillas while eating.”

    Note to self: Do not pet purring Guinea Pig.
