How to gently snuggle Lucy in various ways for various purr sound-effects.
1. The Basic Snuggle
The basic snuggle requires little to zero interaction. This is when Lucy is either nestled close by or partially on top of the lap. Her purrs at this point can either sound like a concerted effort or a small snorting type exhalation purr where the purr itself is a little harsh and easily heard between breaths.
2. The Hard Purr
The hard purr is much louder than the basic snuggle purr and is usually audible in the same way as the basic snuggle. The different being that it’s louder and comes about when one shifts or moves while Lucy is in a basic snuggle mode.
3. The I HATE YOU
Yes, Lucy purrs when she’s about to attack you. This usually comes about when she’s in any of her snuggle modes and you are moving too much for her to be comfortable. If your arms are moving at a rate she doesn’t like or in a motion she doesn’t like. The purrs get quieter and quieter, and when you least expect it. BITE.
4. The Eyes
Her most gentlest of purrs happen when she’s either fallen asleep or she’s making eye contact/blinking at me. This phase comes right before reaching extreme comfort mode and she falls asleep.
5. The Chest Purr – the rarest of purrs
This is her most rapid purr. To achieve this purr, one must gently accept the Lucy onto ones lap. And then if she wants a head or cheek rub one can gently snuggle Lucy’s head against the chest with both hands while keeping an eye on tail and ear signals. The purr is loud and rapid, which is different from the Hard Purr where it is just loud and sounds like she is laboring to purr as loud as possible.
