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.

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

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.
