Cats often purr to get attention, but there could also be a scientific reason they do so as well. When cats purr, the frequencies of these purring vibrations can be therapeutic for bone growth, pain relief and repairing wounds.

Scientists believe that purring can keep a cat’s bones growing without the cat having to move or exercise. So the next time you want to get in shape but don’t feel like going to the gym, try purring and laying around the house, sleeping 90 percent of the time. If it works for cats, it might work for you too.
