9 Cats Who Look Just Like Their Big Cat Cousins


One of the most remarkable things about our domestic cats is how similar they are to their larger, wild cousins. Despite thousands of years of domestication, house cats and wild cats have some amazing similarities. Especially with more recent cat breeds, we’re beginning to see our house cats appear more and more exotic. This leaves us with some really beautiful felines. These 9 cats are the splitting-image of their big cat cousins!

#1 – There’s Thor, the Bengal cat who looks like a tiger
