However, I am not aware of any evidence that Neanderthals actually hunted saber-toothed cats.

We don't really know, but it's likely not a reason they would have been hunted. Saber toothed cats would have competed with humans of the time, would have been difficult to kill, offered less than palatable meat. But modern humans have hunted big cats in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Europe (the European lion was hunted to extinction before the advent of firearms) with little more than nets and bladed weapons for millennia.
