    Yes, I have heard them. They're just louder.

    It is only the small cats who can purr. These are the bobcats, lynxes, ocelots, pumas, jaguar, panthers and domestic cats - although they can purr they cannot roar. The large cats, such as lions and tigers cannot purr, but as anyone knows who has seen them in the wild, they can certainly roar.
