Strange Noise

Hey Guys,

Not sure what this falls under as it may be normal for this car.

When I bring the clutch up to just past the biting point the engine makes a funny noise that sounds like a cat purring in a high pitched yet low kind of way.

This only happens if I dont give it enough gas.. Is this normal for the civic? cant say I have noticed it on any of the other cars I have owned.

I tried recording it on the Iphone but it is crap for that sort of thing, although you can just about hear it between 6 and 7 seconds in.
