I'm slowly getting use to what my 3 boys are doing only had them since september to still got a lot to learn. one of my boys seems to vibrate when hes having his cuddle time what does that mean? theres no other noise until he does the i need to go to loo now please.

my youngest is finally settling down when he gets his cuddle time but he will only stay still for little while. when he's getting stroked he will make an odd sound something similar to a rumble but its a much shorter sound he doesnt do a lot of the time just odd occasional time. what is he doing?

can someone shed some light on what these boys doing? thank you :)p

The short vibrating sound is fear. When Gilbert does it while I cuddle him, it's usually after a loud bang or noise. I calm him down by talking to him in a gentle voice and telling him it's alright. Since youre boys are still somewhat new to their surroundings, it's natural for them to feel scared. Just give them time. xx
