As I looked at this, I heard Gaines meowing his little head off. I thought "i got your decibels right here!" But purring? He's a laid back purrer. He's Mr Cool, if you know what I mean, coolcat.

A weird purr too. I love cats' purrs, it's such a comforting happy sound.

I love it when a cat sits on your chest and their purr reverberates through your chest cavity. Would the rib cage be able to the amount of purring that that cat generates though?

A chart is always helpful. So this cat is three times as loud as a normal conversation.

The problem with measuring sound is that the db chart is a futz. They measure the cat at 6 inches away and they measure the lawnmower from 10 feet and the 737 from a hundred yards. It's a valid measurement but we can't compare properly.

So those numbers at the bottom of the chart are wrong?

It's hard to say what they mean by "relative loudness." It seems to indicate doubling intensity every 10 dB, which is wrong. An additional 10 dB is ten times as loud. Here's a good rundown of everything you never wanted to know about it.
