Do all felines purr?

Those who live with one or more cats in the house will be very familiar with the purr of kittens. This particular noise is emitted by cats and some felines to express, generally, a feeling of well-being.

Cats, and other felines, also emit purrs as a real communication system, both between each other and with humans, but also to handle stressful situations or to reassure themselves or those in front of them.

But are there any felines that do not purr? The answer is yes, let's see which animals are more specifically concerned.

Felines that purr besides cats
Besides cats, lynxes, ocelots, cougars, and cheetahs are also capable of purring. Although cubs are already able to purr, it is actually with time that they begin to purr in the best way since this means making a considerable anatomical effort.

Felines that don't purr. The tiger
Big felines do not purr. This includes, of course, the tiger. This is due to the fact that the tiger, as well as all other big cats, do not have the apparatus in charge of emitting a purr. Although big cats are able to emit short vibrating sounds as they exhale, then they are not able to make them last long.
