Wounded cats will purr because it helps to heal and strenghten bones and organs. Cats purr at between 27 and 44 hertz (a measure of the number of cycles per second and NOT a car hire firm!), exposure to similar sound frequencies is known to improve bone density in humans. Purring is believed to have a similar effect to ultra-sound treatment on humans.
