Extanct or extinct?
Biggest modern cat is Panthera, probably P. tigris altaica to be exact (~200kg on average).

No felid really got any larger than the ~400kg Smilodon populator, although some species were just as large.

No felid was anywhere near 1000kg. Even ursids can barely claim to reach that figure.
