Sounds like it's saying chigre. is that how it is pronounced?

Yes. Ti sounds like chi

Yes it is. TI and DI sound like TCHI and DJI in brazilian portuguese.

It depends. In the brazilian northeast, we speak TI with the same pronunciation that you talks the T letter. Ti, and not chi

In English, "The tiger eats meat" is a rather pompous way of saying "tigers eat meat". Could our Portuguese sentence be translated that way?
