I don't have a word for "to purr" yet in Carrajena but there is the onomotopoeia fid-fid-frau which is the sound of cats fighting or people speaking French. Piu-piu-tuid-tuid is the sound of birds chirping or of people speaking Florentine. I-au or i-hau is the sound of a donkey braying or of people speaking English.
