 I don't care how magical or shape-shifter'y og whatever your tigers are, tiger's don't purr. That's all.

Actually it's not that cut and dried. The topic of whether tigers can actually purr or not is up for debate in the scientific community. On the one hand, tigers can purr when they exhale. On the other hand, tigers can't purr when in they inhale.

So, YMMV. I'm not gonna get mad at an author when scientists can even agree.

I did look it up out of curiosity after reading your rant. And that's when I read that not all scientists agree with your definition of purring. Some say tigers (and lions, leopards and jaguars) can purr during inhalation, others say they have to be able to purr when they exhale too. Again, if the scientists can't agree, how can a lay person be blamed for going with one expert opinion over another? So that's why I said YMMV.
