Speak UP, Merlin- We Can’t Hear Ya!

Merlin now holds the World Record for loudest purr by a domestic cat, according to Guinness World Records. They measured his purr at 67.8 decibels! Quoting their site, “At almost 70 decibels, Merlin’s purr is as noisy as a conversation or an air conditioner and nearly as loud as a shower or even a dishwasher!”
