Josie and I were both snoozing last night and my mum was sitting on the sofa playing with her gadget.
"Oh cool!" she muttered. "Lots of different restful noises."
We heard Babbling Brook, Ocean Wave, Forest Walk and then....an enormous rumble filled the room.
The largest cat in the world was with us and he was purring. Josie and I both woke up instantly and were looking all around. Where was this noisy purrer? Why was he so happy? A cat that purred so loudly had to be gigantic but there was not so much as a whisker in sight. Was there an enormous invisible cat on mum's lap?
I would not like such a flat-mate. You cannot sleep with such thoughts in your mind.
Then my mum noticed us both and said, "Sorry. Looks like Purring Cat won't be one of my restful sounds."
She tapped her gadget and it stopped. It was just a noise in the machine.
I shot her a fierce look and settled back down to sleep. Why does she need a machine that purrs when she has me and Josie? She is so thoughtless sometimes.

I don't know how I'd feel about a purrer I couldn't see either.
My mom tried one of those machines so she could sleep at night. It actually kept her awake. That was before my time.
People are peculier with their sleepytimes. Cats just snuggle down, close their eyes, and off we go. I don't know why she doesn't just do that. She has promised not to play it again.
I am glad that your mum has promised not to play "Purring Cat" again. You and Josie would be up all night looking for the gigantic cat, and you wouldn't get any sleep at all! MOL!
