    Are all cats related for example are the small domestic cats related to bengal tigers and african lions?

    Yes. They are part of the feline family.

    but I heard the specie name of the regular domestic house cat is felis and the big cats are in the panthera family but I guess they are all related.

    Big or small, they're cats so they're in the same family, the felines. Too much similarities to be otherwise.

    They're beautiful creatures. :)

    I have 3 cats, I love my cats. Id like to get a female bengal tiger. First I wanted a female mountain lion but I think Id rather go with a Bengal Tiger. Problem is the wild cat would probaly turn on you faster than what a pitbull will do to its owner.

    And Dangerous! Gunrunner, you must have a death wish. Cougar, now a tiger?? As Johnlives4christ once said to Ozo, Gunrunner, you must be off your rocker Sir.
    (video posted was one of the mild ones)(you should see what they can really do) Just sayin.

    folks keep ya kitty's in your homes

    got a friend who is getting sued by a lady but her cat had no collar was trying to eat his ducklings so he shot it ,

    if it had a collar that was visible he'd have chased it or tried to catch it and have the RSPCA collect it and return it to its home

    no collar you run the risk of it being called feral in such a situation

    most hunters see a collar and wont shoot

    but all cats retain that wild hunt instinct and maybe to them its uncontrollable, i dunno

    but do keep your cats inside of a night and ensure they have collars

    or you may end up like the lady who's cat was shot . its sad and sadder she's spending a fortune on a court case that she wont win

    the cat was attacking livestock and had no sign it was a domestic cat and not a feral

    so she'll lose again and sadly she's a nice lady. both folks are good people

    collar your pets folks . please

    I've read several accounts of how good puma tastes. Read no reports on the smaller domestic varieties, but all those coyotes can't be wrong !

    Seriously, cats are interesting creatures. To say they are "domesticated" is, IMO, stretching reality. (You know, like liberals do with facts.) I suspect the "house cat" is a more social variant and its behaviors will include its "masters" in its pack/pride behaviors. >MW
