The Cat Purr

Little is as soothing as the sound of a cat purring.


I did a post on the Hearing Loss Tips site about tinnitus and provided a link to a sound mixer available via the American Tinnitus Association site*. The sound mixer is to enable those struggling with Tinnitus (a constant ringing in the ears) to create a soothing sound palette to help them relax or sleep. I’ve used it to create sounds to accompany some of the inspirational videos I create.  For example. I’ve used the ocean sound for a video designed to help one focus on pleasant things.

ATA Sound Mixer

Here is the sound mixer with “cat purr” selected. You can create a sound file with FOUR layers of sound if you wish.

Well, a cat purr is certainly a pleasant thing!  Here is an audio recording for you of a cat’s purr. Download and enjoy!

*Update October 2015.  This is no longer on the American Tinnitus Association Site.  However the creator, and his menu of sounds, is on Facebook
