    I think the only one left is Cougar, and there would be way to many jokes.

    Like iPad didn't generate jokes?

    Plenty of names left I am sure if they want to use them
    And I don't think they are too concerned about jokes

    I suspect that once apple goes to OS XI, they'll drop the cat names and move on to something else. If that's true, then they only have 3 more cat names to worry about and there are definitely more then 3 more cat varieties.

    Maybe they'll go for even-toed ungulate in OS XI, then?

    It would be in the feline family; it's a cross between a lion and a tiger, both in the feline families. It's no cat you'd want sleeping on the foot of your bed that's for sure.

    Neither would a tiger or lion. A cross of those would be less so. :D

    Too bad they didn't call Boot Camp "Siamese". Makes a lot of sense when you think about it.

    Doh! My bad, tigers are : Animalia, Chordata, Mammalia, Carnivora, Felidae, Panthera, Tigris
    lions are : Animalia, Chordata, Mammalia, Carnivora, Felidae, Panthera, Leo

    Panthera -> Includes cougar (P. concolor), jaguar (P. onca), jaguarundi (P. jaguarundi), leopard (P. pardus), lion (P. leo), margay (P. tigrina), ocelot (P. pardalis), tiger (P. tigris), Siberian tiger (P. tigris altaica), snow leopard (P. uncia).

    Thus both Lions and Tigers are all part of the same genus.

    A house cat on the other hand is Animalia, Chordata, Mammalia, Carnivora, Felidae, Felis, Domesticus

    They are of the same Family, but not the same Genus.
