A cat called Smokey has raised eyebrows with her deafening purr that can reach 92 decibels.
The cat's owner claims that the purring can drown out pretty much anything including the TV and telephone conversations. "Itís either adorable or annoying, depending on what mood youíre in," she says. "You donít even have to stroke her to start a purring session. Often sheíll do it for no reason."
For cat lovers, there is nothing more soothing than the sound of their pet purring with contentment. But when Smokey kicks off, itís time to reach for the ear plugs. The sound she produces can reach an incredible 92 decibels Ė the same as youíd experience watching a Boeing 737 coming in to land.
