|here's the thing. no, they're not synonymous with birds of prey. they are predators just as birds of prey are, the birds of prey thing being thrown in there is just confusing.
do cats sometimes have the look of the hunter, the predator? i should hope so, that's what they are. the big cats are top order predators, all felines are consummate predators in whatever environment they are suited for. there is only one bird that i believe qualifies as a top order predator-the phillipine eagle. i could be wrong, does anybody know for sure?
the methods of predation used by birds of prey are not shared by felines of any size. and as birds do not even give live birth, their psychology and sociology is necessarily quite different. but they are both predators, and so i suppose they might both have a...predatory gleam, perhaps, in their eye? but i believe the similarity begins and ends with the fact that they are both predators.
