Airedale as Part Cat?

Filed under: AireTails — admin @ 2:33 pm

Some people maintain that Airedales, because of their independent nature, are part cat. I think I can shed some light on the subject with a little story.

Yesterday, we took Ruby and Otis to day-care. We did this for a couple of reasons, but mainly to keep them socialized. Apparently, they had a good time, but were VERY happy to see us at the end of the day. And they were TIRED!!! They were very quiet on the ride home. 

We got them home, gave them dinner, then took them out for their evening walk. We got them inside, and dried them off (it was raining) and came in to the living room.  Otis put himself right where he usually does, right at, and partially on, my feet.

I reached down and started petting him. As I reached his neck, just behind his ears he started making a very low noise.  I had my sweetheart mute the TV and listen.  Yep, he was PURRING! As I would rub around the top of his neck, and down by his jaw, he would PURR! He wasn’t growling, and it definitely wasn’t the “eargasm” moan he lets out when you hit the right spot rubbing his ears.  This was definitely PURRING.

So there you have it, folks, definitive anecdotal proof that Airedales are part cat!
