my piggies all purr - i think its a bit of both - the girls purr when they are relaxed, like when they are sitting on my knee or something but when brodie purrs he alwasy looks petrified. Brodie is always shaking too when he purrs where as the girls are usually pretty still. He will also purr if the girls our on the floor near his cage.

It does depend of the situation. Patrick and Jack both purr when they are relaxed, and you pet them. That means that they are very contented. They will also purr when the get spooked, but it is very slightly different.
