The times I've been with tigers in close proximity, I've always seen what I see in little house cats: a mesmerizing mix of docility, beauty, mischievousness, speed, elegance, and magnificence. The one difference: 211 (Sumatran tiger) to 691 (Siberian) pounds of mass.
Setting aside the cruelty of having a tiger in captivity (or much worse: as a house pet), I always thought that the advertised dangers were a fabrication of uninformed humans who are quick to put forward their uneducated opinions.
Tigers are kitty cats after all. 🐯 🐈
But I found this in Quora: an expert shedding light on the subject.
