Cats purr, Poor Vets...

Cats purr is a sign of pleasure, but cat's also purr to calm themselves when they are in stressing situations. When cats purr at the vets, they cannot be checked. To be able to check their pulse or to hear their lounges, The experienced Vets found two simple tricks. To open a water tub - the sound of water stop the cat's purr. The second trick is to blow gently on the cat nose, this would also stop the purr for a short while.

I wonder if it'll work with human hiccups too...
