Capitalization of article[edit]

Moved big cat to Big Cat since it's a proper noun, more or less, and leaves room for discussion of the so-called "big cats" in the uncapitalized version. -- JohnOwens 01:00 Mar 26, 2003 (UTC)

Actually, I'm pretty sure Big Cat is *not* a proper noun. Animal names, as a rule, are not proper nouns (with a few obvious exceptions like Grevy's zebra). Funnyhat 04:04, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Clarity again[edit]

Also beneath the picture of the tiger is the very unscientific caption "the tiger is the heaviest of the cats" should it be changed, as it doesn't take in to effect extinct cats, does not mention the word species which is important as "Ligers" can and do get bigger but being a hybrid are not a species.

Fixed. In future pls put new comments at the bottom of the talk page and sign your entry with 4 of these ~ . Secret Squïrrel, approx 12:55, 4 Fabruary 2009 (Earth Standard Time)

Lynx Lynx not big enough ?[edit]

I just wonder why the Eurasian Lynx (Lynx Lynx) isn't mentioned about here `? Is it forgotten, not big enough or wrong elsewise ? 83.249.32.20 (talk) 14:35, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Conservation?!![edit]

I don't understand what this Conservation section has to do with "Big cats." If it's a lead-in to a list of sanctuaries for large felines, then it's a bit wordy and detailed, but understandable. But for it to sit there by itself, as it does now, is a total non-sequitur. --Eliyahu S Talk 16:45, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
