When Does A Kitten Start Purring?

A kitten will purr when it is happy and contented. A new mother cat’s litter of kittens will often purr as they are suckling, especially if their mother has just given birth to the latest litter. The sound only lasts for a minute or so but at that early age it can be an indication of that kitten’s happiness and contentment.

It may also be indicative of that kitten being fed which you certainly want to hear!
