Yeah, they probably mean big cats like lions or tigers, but I love the idea of a bunch of house cats on display at a zoo!

This reminds me of this one zoo I went to as a kid that had rather mundane things like possums and deer, (both of which are a million times more common just outside their doors.) and then, as if lured into a false sense of security, the next animal I came upon was a freaking Siberian Tiger!!!

Not in words that originate in Irish, no. However, seeing one of the "missing" letters is pretty much always a sign that the word is a loan word that came from another language.
