Tigers may be the biggest wild cats in the world, but that doesn’t mean they still don’t have some things in common with your typical pet cat. Just like a pet cat might climb a tree in your yard, a tiger likes to climb the many rain forest trees in its natural jungle habitat. When it comes to hunting, both tigers and cats are sneaky stalkers of their prey, waiting for just the right opportunity to make a quick surprise attack. Both animals also move their small young from place to place by gently carrying their cubs or kittens by the loose skin on the back of their necks.

Since most tigers and cats tend to be more active at night, both tend to spend a lot of the day sleeping. Tigers have even been known to sleep an average of 16 hours per day! However, while tigers love to swim and play in water, most pet cats would rather avoid getting wet.
