They don’t really have all that much larger litters. Domestic cats average 3-5 kittens in a litter, and a tiger, for example, averages 3-4 cubs. One of the reasons for such a large litter size is that cats are superfecund, meaning that if more than one male has access to the female, there can be more than one father per litter of kittens. Another reason could be that domestic cats are not as subject to the perils of natural selection, so evolution has raised the number of kittens for a healthy litter.
