Now, as it so happens, my wife owns a Maine Coon, (the worthless thing is even registered) and while both the breed and my wife's cat are monstrously huge animals (at least by housecat standards) and I'm sure that 'ol Teddy Bear is no shrinking violet, either. How can you possibly mistake an 18-pound housecat for a 400-pound lion? And not just mildly mistake one for the other, either. Not "I say, old chap, doesn't that appear to be a lion loafing in that field?", but a man screaming, "It's a f****** lion!"
