Cat With The Loudest Purr in The World

Most domestic cats purr at around 25 decibels but Merlin the cat has hit an incredible 100 decibels, louder than a hair dryer, or a hand drill. The 12-year-old pet is so noisy owner Tracy Westwood struggles to hold telephone conversations or hear the TV. Mrs. Westwood, 47, said: “I often have people asking me what on earth is the noise in the background – it’s just Merlin the cat.” Mrs. Westwood took in Merlin when he was just a kitten from an animal rescue center.
