A tiger is a little lighter than the things I usually compare around here but I was curious to how big the difference was between these two creatures from opposite ends of the feline world.
A full grown indoor cat usually ranges from seven to ten pounds depending on breed. I'm going to call nine pounds as the average weight of a domestic cat. Until someone weighs all the cats in the world, I'm sticking with nine pounds as my estimate.
Now on to Tigers.
A Siberian Tiger is the largest of the tigers so let's use this subspecies for our measurements. The males are heavier so let's also add that into the equation.
A male Siberian tiger can weigh up to 705 pounds. Good god, that's frightening.
Now the answer becomes clear, a tiger weighs the same as 78.3 domestic cats
The tougher question is who would you rather fight - 78 household cats or a Siberian tiger?
Ok, maybe that question was too easy. I think I'd rather fight 78 humans than one Siberian tiger. The thing weighs almost as much as two motorcycles.
