Thread Name: How many Mudcats have cats!?
Subject: RE: How many Mudcats have cats!?
My British shorthair Muriel (because she was grey) spent the first half of her life as a flat cat, on tenement top floors. All that time she never purred or meowed, and the main noise she made was a very realistic quack when birds flew past outside. It was as if she hoped it would be a lure.

Within weeks of moving to a cottage with a garden, where she could go outside, she learned to purr. Kept up the quacking all her life though.
