Dear Mrs.Greene I know you love cats so i would like to ask you a few questions and inform you on all different types of cats.
Tigers are big cats. They actually are the biggest member of the cat family. They are very closely related to other big cats including snow leopards and lions. There are not very many lions any more there are only 3,050 to 3,950 we think are to remain in the wild. Even though that seems like a lot but, it is not very many.
This is very sad. From why do people kill tigers "Tigers are often killed for sport, spectacle and folk remedies in a practice that has driven the species to the edge of extinction." Also from why do people kill tigers "According to the Guardian, police in the city of Zhanjiang seized 10 dead tigers in March 2014." The tigers were killed for live entertainment of local businessmen.
Although both lions and tigers are wild animals that belong to the cat family, there are many differences between these two big cats. the way the y look is the most obvious one. Tigers have black stripes across their bodies, where lions do not have any stripes.
Cats are whole different story's, they are so much smaller and live in our houses. They lick you instead of bite you or roar at us. They are fun to cuddle with and you are not scared to be around them.
From cheetah facts "The Cheetah is the fastest land animal reaching speeds of 45 – 70 mph. Cheetahs have also been known to swim, although they do not like to. The Cheetah is not one of the Great Cats, because it does not have a floating Hyoid bone in its neck it can not roar, therefore it is a Lesser Cat." These are some facts about cheetahs.
A bob cat?
A lot of people do not think that a bobcat is related to a house cat even though cat is in the name. I had doubts on that so i looked it up and they are. They are beautiful looking animals but they are very harsh. From Bobcat National Geographic "The cat is named for its tail, which appears to be cut or "bobbed." Fierce hunters, bobcats can kill prey much bigger than themselves, but usually eat rabbits, birds, mice, squirrels, and other smaller game. The bobcat hunts by stealth, but delivers a deathblow with a leaping pounce that can cover 10 feet (3 meters)."
From 10 things you didn't know about cats "Everyone knows that when a cat is hungry, they won’t beat around the bush about it. They will rub on you, paw at you and some might even meow at the top of their lungs. While this may appear something like a distress call, cats practice this behavior to manipulate their owners to get what they want—food!" That is something you might want to know if you get a cat which you have one so you probably know this."
Also from 10 things you didn't know about cats "If a cat is relaxed enough and has entered a deep sleep, their little minds produce the same brain wave patterns that we do to send them into dream land. Maybe there kitty can catch that pesky squirrel for real this time!" Maybe that's why when they fall asleep they move all around.
From 10 cool fact about lions "If you grew up in the 90’s, you may have grown up with two conflicting ideas. For the longest time, the lion was known as the “King of the Jungle.” If you’ve ever seen The Lion King, however, you know exactly how easy this myth is to bust.
Lions are kings of the savannah. They prefer flatter grasslands over any type of forest. Lions have excellent eyesight and poor camouflage compared to other cats; a sandy, relatively unmarked coat like a lion’s blends more with the dry grass of the plains than jungle foliage." This is a very interesting fact that I never knew.
From 10 things you didn't know about cats "For all those people who say they’re allergic to cats, well, they aren’t allergic to the cats themselves. People are actually allergic to cat dander, not cat fur. This is because cat’s produce a hormone in their saliva that triggers allergies for humans. Due to cats “bathing” themselves, this is how the saliva spreads on the fur. Coincidentally, there are some cat breeds that are proven to be hypoallergenic." This is an interesting thing to know. Now if you know anyone allergic to cats you can tell them this.
does a tiger or a lion hibernate?
From 10 things you didn't know about cats "Domesticated cats are all descendants to their ancestor big cats-many of which could be found in desert settings centuries ago. Because of this, cats can tolerate high temperatures well and pant to cool themselves. (They even have the ability to sweat—through the pads on the bottoms of their feet!)" When its worm don't hold the cat by the feet then.
Another interesting fact in 10 things you didn't know about cats "Because their eyes are so large, cats are not able to focus on anything closer than a foot in front of them—making them farsighted. Luckily they have the ability to use their whiskers to sense things that they can’t clearly see."
How would you tame a wild animal?

I hope you use this information and if you want to answer any questions just show that it was you and type it by the question.
