}}Felidae is a family of mammals in the order Carnivora, colloquially referred to as cats, and constitutes a clade. A member of this family is also called a felid.JOURNAL, Salles, L. O., 1992, Felid phylogenetics: extant taxa and skull morphology (Felidae, Aeluroidea), American Museum Novitates, 3047,weblinkv2/dspace/ingest/pdfSource/nov/N3047.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y, JOURNAL, Hemmer, H., 1978, Evolutionary systematics of living Felidae – present status and current problems, Carnivore, 1, 71–79, JOURNAL, Johnson, W.

E., O'Brien, S. J., Phylogeny and evolution of cats (Felidae), 2010, 59–82,, Macdonald, D. W., Loveridge, A. J., Biology and Conservation of Wild Felids, Oxford University Press, Oxford, UK, 978-0-19-923445-5, The Felidae species exhibit the most diverse fur pattern of all terrestrial carnivores.JOURNAL, Peters, G., 1982, Zur Fellfarbe und zeichnung einiger Feliden, Bonner Zoologische Beiträge, 33, 1, 19−31, Cats have retractile claws, slender muscular bodies and strong flexible forelimbs. Their teeth and facial muscles allow for a powerful bite. They are all obligate carnivores, and most are solitary predators ambushing or stalking their prey. Wild cats occur in Africa, Europe, Asia and the Americas. Some wild cat species are adapted to forest habitats, some to arid environments, and a few also to wetlands and mountainous terrain. Their activity patterns range from nocturnal and crepuscular to diurnal, depending on their preferred prey species.Reginald Innes Pocock divided the extant Felidae into three subfamilies: the Pantherinae, the Felinae and the Acinonychinae, differing from each other by the ossification of the hyoid apparatus and by the cutaneous sheaths which protect their claws.JOURNAL, Pocock, R. I., 1917, The classification of the existing Felidae, Annals and Magazine of Natural History, Series 8, XX, 119, 329–350,weblink 10.1080/00222931709487018, This concept has been revised following developments in molecular biology and techniques for analysis of morphological data. Today, the living Felidae are divided in two subfamilies: the Pantherinae and Felinae, with the Acinonychinae subsumed into the latter. Pantherinae includes five Panthera and two Neofelis species, while Felinae includes the other 34 species in ten genera.JOURNAL, Kitchener, A. C., Breitenmoser-Würsten, C., Eizirik, E., Gentry, A., Werdelin, L., Wilting, A., Yamaguchi, N., Abramov, A. V., Christiansen, P., Driscoll, C., Duckworth, J. W., Johnson, W., Luo, S.-J., Meijaard, E., O’Donoghue, P., Sanderson, J., Seymour, K., Bruford, M., Groves, C., Hoffmann, M., Nowell, K., Timmons, Z., Tobe, S., 2017, A revised taxonomy of the Felidae: The final report of the Cat Classification Task Force of the IUCN Cat Specialist Group, Cat News, Special Issue 11,weblink The first cats emerged during the Oligocene about 25 million years ago, with the appearance of Proailurus and Pseudaelurus. The latter species complex was ancestral to two main lines of felids: the cats in the extant subfamilies and a group of extinct cats of the subfamily Machairodontinae, which include the saber-toothed cats such as the Smilodon. The "false sabre toothed cats", the Barbourofelidae and Nimravidae, are not true cats, but are closely related. Together with the Felidae, Viverridae, hyaenas and mongooses, they constitute the Feliformia.


File:Panthera_leo_Kruger_Skull.jpg|thumb|Skull of a lion from Kruger National ParkKruger National Park(File:Purring_and_meowing.ogg|right|thumb|Domestic cat purring and meowing)All members of the cat family have the following characteristics in common:
  • They are digitigrade, have five toes on their forefeet and four on their hind feet. Their curved claws are protractile and attached to the terminal bones of the toe with ligaments and tendons. The claws are guarded by cutaneous sheaths, except in the Acinonyx.JOURNAL, Pocock, R. I., 1917, VII.—On the external characters of the Felidæ, The Annals and Magazine of Natural History; Zoology, Botany, and Geology, 8, 19, 109, 113−136,weblink 10.1080/00222931709486916,
  • They actively protract the claws by contracting muscles in the toe, and they passively retract them. The dewclaws are expanded but do not protract.BOOK, Kitchener, A. C., Van Valkenburgh, B., Yamaguchi, N., 2010,weblink Felid form and function, Biology and Conservation of wild felids, D., Macdonald, Loveridge, A., Oxford University Press, Oxford, 83−106,
  • They have 30 teeth with a dental formula of {{DentalFormula|upper=|lower=}}. The upper third premolar and lower molar are adapted as carnassial teeth, suited to tearing and cutting flesh.BOOK, Pocock, R. I., 1939, Felidae, The fauna of British India, including Ceylon and Burma. Mammalia. – Volume 1, Taylor and Francis, London, 191–330,weblink The canine teeth are large, reaching exceptional size in the extinct saber-toothed species. The lower carnassial is smaller than the upper carnassial and has a crown with two compressed blade-like pointed cusps.BOOK, Sunquist, M., Sunquist, F., 2002, Wild Cats of the World, University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 978-0-226-77999-7, What is a Cat?, 5–18,weblink
  • Their nose projects slightly beyond the lower jaw.
  • They have well developed and highly sensitive whiskers above the eyes, on the cheeks, on the muzzle, but not below the chin. Whiskers help to navigate in the dark and to capture and hold prey.
  • Their skull is foreshortened with a rounded profile and large orbits.
  • Their tongue is covered with horny papillae, which rasp meat from prey and aid in grooming.
  • Their eyes are relatively large, situated to provide binocular vision. Their night vision is especially good due to the presence of a tapetum lucidum, which reflects light back inside the eyeball, and gives felid eyes their distinctive shine. As a result, the eyes of felids are about six times more light sensitive than those of humans, and many species are at least partially nocturnal. The retina of felids also contains a relatively high proportion of rod cells, adapted for distinguishing moving objects in conditions of dim light, which are complemented by the presence of cone cells for sensing colour during the day.
  • Their external ears are large, and especially sensitive to high-frequency sounds in the smaller cat species. This sensitivity allows them to locate small rodent prey.
  • They have lithe and flexible bodies with muscular limbs.
  • The (wikt:plantarAdjective|plantar) pads of both fore and hind feet form compact three-lobed cushions.
  • The penis is subconical and boneless. Relative to body size, they have shorter bacula than canids.BOOK, Ewer, R. F., 1973, The Carnivores,weblink 27 January 2013, Cornell University Press, 978-0-8014-8493-3,
  • They cannot detect the sweetness of sugar, as they lack the sweet-taste receptor.JOURNAL, Li, X., Li, W., Wang, H., Cao, J., Maehashi, K., Huang, L., Bachmanov, A. A., Reed, D. R., Legrand-Defretin, V., Beauchamp, G. K., Brand, J. G., yes, 2005, Pseudogenization of a Sweet-Receptor Gene Accounts for Cats' Indifference toward Sugar, PLOS Genetics, 1, 1, 27–35, 10.1371/journal.pgen.0010003, 16103917, 1183522,
  • Felids have a vomeronasal organ in the roof of the mouth, allowing them to "taste" the air.JOURNAL, Salazar, I., Quinteiro, P., Cifuentes, J. M., Caballero, T. G., 1996, The vomeronasal organ of the cat, Journal of Anatomy, 188, 2, 445–454, 1167581, 8621344, The use of this organ is associated with the Flehmen response.JOURNAL, Hart, B. L., Leedy, M. G., 1987, Stimulus and hormonal determinants of flehmen behavior in cats, Hormones and Behavior, 21, 1, 44−52,weblink 10.1016/0018-506X(87)90029-8,
  • The standard sounds made by all felids include meowing, spitting, hissing, snarling and growling. Meowing is the main contact sound, whereas the others signify an aggressive motivation.
  • They can purr during both phases of respiration, though pantherine cats seem to purr only during oestrus and copulation, and as cubs when suckling. Purring is generally a low pitch sound of less than 2 kHz and mixed with other vocalization types during the expiratory phase.JOURNAL, Peters, G., 2002, Purring and similar vocalizations in mammals, Mammal Review, 32, 4, 245−271, 10.1046/j.1365-2907.2002.00113.x,
The colour, length and density of their fur is very diverse. Fur colour covers the gamut from white to black, and fur pattern from distinctive small spots, stripes to small blotches and rosettes. Most cat species are born with a spotted fur, except the jaguarundi (Herpailurus yagouaroundi), Asian golden cat (Catopuma temminckii) and caracal (Caracal caracal). The spotted fur of lion (Panthera leo) and cougar (Puma concolor) cubs change to a uniform fur during their ontogeny. Those living in cold environments have thick fur with long hair, like the snow leopard (Panthera uncia) and the Pallas's cat (Otocolobus manul). Those living in tropical and hot climate zones have short fur. Several species exhibit melanism with all-black individuals.In the great majority of cat species, the tail is between a third and a half of the body length, although with some exceptions, like the Lynx species and margay. Cat species vary greatly in body and skull sizes, and weights:
  • The largest cat species is the tiger (Panthera tigris), with a head-to-body length of up to {{convert|390|cm|in|abbr=on}}, a weight range of at least {{convert|65|to|325|kg|lb|abbr=on}}, and a skull length ranging from {{convert|316|to|413|mm|in|abbr=on}}.BOOK, Hewett, J.

Most cat species have a haploid number of 18 or 19. Central and South American cats have a haploid number of 18, possibly due to the combination of two smaller chromosomes into a larger one.BOOK, Vella, C., Shelton, L. M., McGonagle, J.

Smilodon lived in North and South America from about 2.5 million years ago. This subfamily became extinct in the Late Pleistocene.Results of mitochondrial analysis indicate that the living Felidae species descended from a common ancestor, which originated in Asia in the Late Miocene epoch.

Traditionally, five subfamilies have been distinguished within the Felidae based on phenotypical features: the Pantherinae, the Felinae, the Acinonychinae, and the extinct Machairodontinae and Proailurinae.

Living species

The following table shows the living genera within the Felidae, grouped according to the traditional phenotypical classification. Estimated genetic divergence times of the corresponding eight genotypical evolutionary lineages are indicated in million years ago (Mya), based on analysis of autosomal, xDNA, yDNA and mtDNA gene segments; and estimates based on analysis of biparental nuclear genomes.{| class="wikitable"
