No. Domesticated cats are directly descended from African Wildcats (Felis Lybica) approximately 9500 years ago. You have to go back much farther to find a common ancestor between Lions and African Wildcats, like about 1.22 to 3.46 million years ago.

Both are carnivores and both are felidae but domestic cats CLEARLY did not come from lions. Are you really that stupid? They came from a rather similar looking small wild cat tens of thousands of years ago.

Domestic cats and lions are of the same Family, Felidae. After that they split into different Genus and Species.

NO. While they both are in the cat family, they are not directly related.

domestic cats are related to lions, but only distantly. In fact lions are more closely related to tigers than your average house cat. Domestic cats and lions and other bigger cat species are in different subfamily, but still fall under the family Felidae.

Lions are cats. I assume you are referring to house cats which are also cats.

Professor Katt has done extensive research on this and these are his words not mine:
"Meow, meow meow meow meow meow meow. Meow meow meow meow, meow meow meow. Meow. Meow meow meow meow? Meow meow meow meow, meow. Meow meow meow; meow meow meow meow. Meow! Meow meow meow meow..."
He continues but I think that covers the gist of what he was trying to say.
