Top 10 Strongest


Chausie: 2nd Strongest Exotic Cat Breed

The Chausie is another exotic cat breed, being a hybrid between a lesser ratio of wild jungle cats crossed with a higher ratio of domestic cats, particularly the Abyssinian. 

Bengal: Strongest Exotic Cat Breed

One of the strongest cats is an exotic hybrid that is the most powerful cat in terms of stamina and physical strength, the Bengal. It was created as a cross predominantly between the Egyptian Mau along with other domestic cats, plus the Asian leopard cat. Because of its amazing stamina, it needs a lot of play and exercise to burn off excess energy and feel sufficiently stimulated.

Norwegian Forest Cat: 2nd Strongest Domestic Cat Breed

As one of the “giant” or large cat breeds, the Norwegian Forest Cat has some similarities to the Maine Coon. This is one of the strong cat breeds with lightning-fast mouse-chasing reflexes, heavy bones, a muscular body, and a heavy coat, with hind legs that are slightly higher than the front legs. 

Maine Coon: Strongest Domestic Cat Breed

One of the “giant” or large cat breeds, the Maine Coon is a muscular cat that is second only to the savannah cat in terms of size. It is the largest non-hybrid domestic cat and is nicknamed America’s cat, originating in the state of Maine. As one of the strong cat breeds, it was used for its expert vermin hunting ability and adapted to harsh, cold weather with a rugged build and hardy constitution. It can also outleap most dogs.

Cougar: 5th-Overall Strongest

The cougar, also called mountain lion or puma, is the fourth largest cat in the world. It is also the second-heaviest big cat after the jaguar and the fifth strongest after the tiger, lion, jaguar, and leopard. This huge cat can weigh 75 to 200 pounds and has very powerful jaws. This ambush predator cannot roar, because it doesn’t have the specialized larynx to do so. Instead, it screams, hisses, and growls to warn attackers or threats. 

Leopard: Strongest Climber & Fighter

Leopard is the most powerful cat for climbing because compared to the stocky jaguar with its strong jaws, the leopard’s sleek body and climbing skills make it the best climber. Muscular, long hind legs allow it to carry prey twice its weight up a tree and jump up to seven times its own body weight. The leopard also has a very powerful bite force and is the strongest fighter.

Jaguar: Strongest Jaw

The jaguar is a type of big cat species and the only native American living member of the Panthera genus. This spotted cat is not only the largest cat species in the Americas but the third-largest in the world. Plus, it is one of the big cats that can kill a tiger.A lion’s bite force is 650psi and a tiger’s is 1,050psi, the jaguar has a larger mouth to deliver a bite force of 2,000psi. 

Lion: 2nd-Overall Strongest

Called the king of the jungle, the lion’s many habitats actually exclude tropical rainforests as well as very arid deserts. The lion’s bite force is 650 psi. In captivity, the tiger is likely to win against the lion. In the wild, however, lions attack in packs and have that as an advantage. Also, both can roar at a volume of 114 decibels, which is 5 times that of a gas-powered lawnmower, but the lion’s roar is a more powerful warning since it can be heard up to 5 miles away. 

Liger: Strongest Hybrid Big Cat

The liger is actually the largest of the big cats, although it is a hybrid resulting from crossing a male lion with a female tiger and does not occur naturally in the wild. It has the strength of a lion and the size and speed of a tiger. Male ligers are sterile, however, meaning only female ligers can reproduce with lions or tigers. 

Tiger: Overall Strongest

It’s the strongest wild cat in terms of strength and size. It beats the lion in terms of strength, speed, aggression, fighting skills, and coordination. Its large size is a factor that makes it the strongest cat in the world. The strongest, largest, and heaviest of all the tiger species is the Bengal Tiger, while the Siberian Tiger can kill Russian brown bears as well as any other of the big cats.
