There are cats in Africa, but not the kind of cats you have, or imagine. The common cats that spring to mind are the big cats: Lions, Leopards and Cheetahs. However there are many medium-sized and even very small species of cat that are native to Africa:

Medium-sized cat:

African Golded Cat

Caracal

Serval

Smaller-size cat:

African Wildcat

Black-Footed Cat (one of the smallest species of cat)

Sand Cat

Housecats as we know them are native to Egypt.No, some cats are nationally from Africa and some from Canada. If youre lookin for a specific species then that might be from New Jersey but most cats are from Africa and Canada as I read about that in A cat book

No, species do not procreate with other species. So cats only procreate with cats; dogs only procreate with dogs.

The big cats that are native to Africa are the Lion, Jaguar?? and Cheetah. However, there many other species of cat that range from medium-sized (Serval, Caracal) to very small-sized cats (Sand Cat, Black-Footed Cat, African Wildcat).The Jaguar is not native to Africa it is native to south America. In Africa there is the leopard (which is also yellow with black spots but is not the same animal at all)

Because, lions lick them-self clean like cats. Also lions take care of their young like cats do too. That is why lions are in the cats species.
