Well, yes, looks like they are... It seems that cats manipulate their owners with a cry embedded in their purr.
More about it here.

My late cat surely could do that urgent "Feed Me NOW!" purr.

Pixie..our (our girly cat) is a foremost authority on the ' feed me now ' meowpurr !..it is not even subtle...she vocalises the high pitch purr and meow so well that we all notice it.

Both our cats have us well trained.

This shouldn't be surprising to any cat owners. It's like asking if the pope is catholic. Of course they are evil and controlling! We as their owners are just trained slaves to do their bidding at will. This is precisely why I prefer cats over dogs! They are a lot more intelligent than we give them credit for.
