These aren't big cats, but it's hard not to love watching these fishing cat kittens learn to fish:

They are all so gorgeous.

I had a "close encounter" with a bobcat while on a hike. He was a big one, and definitely the most beautiful creature I have ever seen in the wild (though the American Kestrel falcon is pretty sweet).

Snow leopards fascinate me.

Tigers win! Lots of folks say lion, but tigers are beautiful. And they come in orange or white.

Oops, my pic of Tigger from Winnie the Pooh bouncing on his tail disappeared... otherwise this comment actually would have made sense...

I like tigers the best, I'm not sure why.

Many years ago I saw 2 black panthers unexpectedly when some people, who were obviously "big cat" handlers, had them chained up on the front lawn of a house in my neighborhood for a little bit. I didn't get CLOSE close, but it was as sight to see.

Can't pick. I love them all, but I do have a fondness for snow leopards. When I was little I had a book about endangered species and the cubs were in them.
