The show might have been a bit behind on information, or just glossed over that part a bit. It always seems to me that cat info gets the short end of the stick.
(hence why a vet would even consider domestic cats to be unsocial in the first place) I do remember watching several documentaries years ago and the mother cats always purred or made purr-like noises with cubs, and cheetahs doing so between siblings (even when older).
Also, I was double checking cheetah info earlier (trying to remember what their groups were called) and it even mentioned cheetahs being able to purr.
I remember in another post a while back where it was mentioned that Carmelo purred.
