I've been doing cat rescue for longer than I'd like to admit. Domestic house cats, little fluffy animals, not lions or tigers. I rarely handle an unknown cat without gloves and long sleeves because while they might be small, they have lots of pointy ends and are twisty and bendy. Feral cats get even more respect/fear. The only time I touch them is when they have been drugged into submission.

If a little housecat can kick my butt without breaking a sweat, I certainly wouldn't trust a "tame" lion or tiger.
