A friend coined a new term that should be added into the CB vernacular (or purr-nacular). When Ollie sleeps this way he snores but he purrs too. She said "oh, he snurrs". YES! The Snurr. This refers to the whiney noise a cat makes when they purr and snore at the same time. Ollie does this when awake and purring with great excitement. It comes outta his nose and sounds just like that.
