Big cats' paws always look so soft and - pudgy - but in effect they are the most deadly tool in the predators' weapons. remember that big cats mostly chase their prey to one extent or other, and take them down with their claws long befor the teeth get involved.
a cats whiskers are the exact width of its body to let it know what spaces it can fit through. <<< Not always true. My cats whiskers are shorter than the width of his body and I've seen plenty of big cats who have shorter whiskers as well
