1. When it's so loud that I can hear him six feet away,

3. "Purrball" -- I like!!!
.
.

I can do what sounds to ME like a pretty good imitation of purring,
but I've NEVER had a cat look at me like, "How the hell are YOU
doing that?!?!?"
.
So, I guess I've never fooled one of them.

6. Learn how to do harmonic overtone singing
or throat singing, and they will look at you that way. That or run away because they don't like that sound ;)

4. About 25 years ago, I worked with a really dumb guy
who told me that purring was how cats cooled themselves. My wife and I got the biggest kick out of that and still refer to it to this day. Cool mode.
