This led to even more interesting videos: and: and:

These videos are funny.

I think I read a wildlife magazine about big cats when I was young. (It was probably one of the pile of magazines in the waiting-room at the dentist's office.)

Anyway, that magazine had a graphic-plus-description about the difference between "small cats" and "big cats".

Among other things, it claimed that both big cats and small cats can purr.

The magazine was definitely pointed towards kids, so it didn't go into all the details that the video showed.
