I figured the head line would grab people's attention. I know deep inside Noodles there is a human, but I'm beginning to think there is cat in him as well. He can be wide awake, but once you start rubbing his belly or right behind his ears, it is like he starts purring like a cat. I guess it would be more of a snore since he is a dog, but it is too funny. If you stop, he will stop making his purring sound. I was curious to know if other corgi's do the same thing. I think it is adorable.
