cat stopped purring

Is Milly still able to meow, if not she may have a form of laryngitis which could be viral. Has she been vaccinated? If she is still eating and is happy, and nothing has changed and it is not viral, then I may be stumped too.

It may just be a behaviour change internally or there is some anatomical damage of her larynx. If something is just not right, have her medically checked out. This may involve an anesthetic and an intra oral exam of her larynx for problems ( may find a polyp or something there). You could often try and co-ordinate this anaesthetic with a dental cleaning which in most cases will usually need to be done properly at 3 years old in most pets on average.

Good luck
