Apparently a Tiger isn't considered a cat here.

Why was my "Tiger Portrait" moved to a different category?

It was moved from "cat" to "other", a tiger is a cat, it is not an "other".

I noticed my Tiger was moved to a different category and along with it all the contests that was completed were removed. Meaning I lost over one hundred contest entries. I had the Tiger placed in "cats" and it was moved to "other". Most normal people consider a Tiger, lion, panther as cats. Sorry someone got bent out of shape because their pet cat kept losing.

Hello John, Animal-Cats category is for domesticated cats only. Tigers belong in Animal category.

Please check our category description page here:

Specifically these parts:

"Animals - Cats – Photos of domestic cats (no Lions, Tigers etc.). Subcategories: Portraits; Playing; Kittens"


"Animals – Photos of any type of animals except dogs and cats. This includes true Wildlife as well as Zoo animals and captive animals. Subcategories: Amphibians; Fish; Sea Creatures; Reptiles; Horses; Spiders & Insects; Birds; Lions, Tigers & Big Cats; Other; Other Mammals"

Even though for dueling and awards subcategories are irrelevant (they are for organizational purposes) I also edited your image (editing doesn't change score or received duels at all) to change subcategory to be "Lions, Tigers & Big Cats" under correct category which is Animals category.
