Purring Couch

A couch that purrs
  (+11, -2)(+11, -2)
(+11, -2)

Fit a comfy couch with a medium-sized motor and a small weight offset on its spindle and an MP3 player set to repeat.

The velocity of the motor could be influenced by the volume of the MP3 player setting, which is ultimately controllable from the arm of the couch.

{Don't blame me - it's [skinflaps]'s idea really}

       If you keep it well fed it's very affectionate.
Just let it keep your loose change though.
  

       massage chairs! Do they purr? I don't think so.   

       That second link's a pin cushion, isn't it?

       But you see, I envisioned a couch stuffed with purring cats.+

       So long as it doesn't make a habit of sleeping in front of the telly, then I don't mind.

       With very sharp claws!!! ;-)

       Ah blissy, I understand that you can now obtain little claw thingies that fit over the cats claws. They're kinda blunt or something.

       //So long as it doesn't make a habit of sleeping in front of the telly, then I don't mind.// I don't think it'd sleep there, but that's where it'd spend most of its time, probably.

       Ah [skinflaps], That is just wrong. It sounds akin to kitty prosthesis, or somethin...not good.   

       //Envisions Claire giving me an evil scowl cause I didn't "shine" her claw covers last night!//

       dreaming again?

       Why a couch has to do purr?

       [Inyuki]It's comforting, and pleasant
