Their diets vary with the whims of humans, however, and can be supplemented by the cat's own hunting successes. Feral cats are the "wild" offspring of domestic cats and are primarily the result of pet owners' abandonment or failure to spay and neuter their animals, allowing them to breed uncontrolled. Feral cat "colonies" can be found behind shopping areas or businesses, in alleys, parks, abandoned buildings, and rural areas. They are elusive and do not trust humans. Many people assume
Ligers and Tiglons Man-Made animals Or an Actual Act of Nature By: Gelitza Davila email@example.com There are many different kinds of animals that were created, some man-made some just common nature. These are called hybrids. Many includes the zee-donk, a cross breed between a zebra and a donkey, cama, a male camel and a female llama, a liger, a cross breed between male lion with a female tiger, and a tiglon, which is a cross breed between a male tiger with a female lion. Ligers, world’s largest cat, and Tiglons are a product of man-made intervention and not nature. Liger Ligers have been intentionally bred for the past 300 years.
Domestic cats belong to the Felidae family of the animal kingdom, which also includes such large cats as the lion, tiger, cheetah, and leopard. Domestic Cats: Animal Planet. (n.d.). Many domestic cats are solitary animals. They tend to be neutral, avoid, and sometimes attack other cats.
The domestic cat, as well as cat pheromones, and types of cat-specific body language. Since cats were cult animals in ancient Egypt, they were commonly believed to have been domesticated there, but there may have been instances of domestication as early as the Neolithic from around 9500 years ago . A genetic study in 2007 concluded that domestic cats are descended from African wildcats, having diverged around 8000 BC in West Asia. Cats are the most popular pet in the world, and are now found in almost every place where humans live. Nomenclature and etymology The English word 'cat' is in origin a loanword, introduced to many languages of Europe from Latin cattus and Byzantine Greek, including Portuguese and Spanish gato, French chat, German Katze, Lithuanian katė and Old Church Slavonic kotka, among others.
Superb specimens are always much sought after for stud services or offspring (unless they have already been neutered; cloning may solve that problem in the future) having won the approval of show judges. To produce cats which closely meet the breed standard, breeders commonly mate together animals which are related and which share desirable characteristics. Over time, sometimes only one or two generations, those characteristics will become homozygous (genetically uniform) and all offspring of the inbred animal will inherit the genes for those characteristics (breed true). Breeders can predict how the offspring will look. "Line-breeding" is not a term used by geneticists, but comes from livestock husbandry.
Northern forests offer the lowest human density of any tiger habitat, and the most complete ecosystem. The vast woodlands also allow tigers far more room to roam, as Russia's timber industry is currently less extensive than that of many other countries. Tigers are the largest of all wild cats and are renowned for their power and strength. There were once eight tiger subspecies, but three became extinct during the 20th century. Over the last hundred years, hunting and forest destruction have reduced overall tiger populations from hundreds of thousands to perhaps 3,000 to 5,000.
 In some languages (such as Chinese 貓, māo), the vocalization became the name of the animal itself. Dr Susanne Schötz of Lund University in Sweden provides an acoustic analysis of a number of felid vocalizations, including chatters, meows, murmurs, and combinations of these sounds.  Most cats growl or hiss when angered or feeling threatened, which serves as a warning to the offending party. If the warning is not heeded, a more serious attack may follow. Some may engage in nipping behavior or batting with their paws, with claws either extended or retracted.
Yes, the Tiger is a natural predator with vicious killing instincts… It will also care for its young as any mother might and protect the pride from outside threat. On the other hand, a sheep once bit me at my uncle’s farm, and it hurt like crazy. My point is this; all God’s creatures are capable of both good and evil. We choose to be good or bad. I get the feeling that Blake is trying to answer a very big question with an apples-to-oranges comparison.
There are many pros and cons for both and these animals have been kept as companions for thousands of years. Egyptians often had cats and wolves as companions have been a frequent occurrence in history. Let’s begin with felines and their dispositions, many people find cats to be aloof and sneaky. Sneakiness can go back to their natural instincts, as a typical method used to hunt for prey. Aloofness, however, is not something that I think is common in cats, some breeds are more typically aloof but, as a whole, I find cats to be very personable.
Autumn Beaulieu 11/12/14 Eric Pelkey ENG 111 A Better Pet Would you rather have a cat or dog? If I were you, I would prefer cats because cats are better than dogs. Training a dog which takes time is hard work on the other hand put a litter box in front of a cat and boom there she goes and training the cat is done. Either way from my point of view, I would want a cat. I have had both a cat and dog in the past.
