    Where does the "purring" sound come from inside our cats?

    From an anatomical standpoint, can someone answer where a cat's "purring" sound comes from in a cat?  Also, how do cat's make that noise, does it come from the throat area?   Just curious.  Thanks

    I need to purchase a new collar for my cat.  I keep reading over and over the terms, either is a "Tie out" or is not a "Tie Out" collar.  Katy does go outside if that makes a difference in the type I need to buy.  I know I need a "Break Away" collar, but does the term "Tie out" mean the same as...
