i have heard a tiger,lion,etc will not hurt a domestic cat if they are standing side by side. Is this an urban myth? I am aware my question is somewhat vague.

Don't know about big wild cats, but Koko, the gorilla that communicates through sign language, has a few kitties as pets! She always communicated to her trainer that she wanted a baby and unfortunately, efforts to mate her had been unsuccessful to that point, so her trainer tried getting her a kitten that had been abandoned - Koko took her right in!
This link is a pic of Koko with her second kitty, Smoky (the first All Ball unfortunately passed, after which Koko became quite depressed - sorry, I've seen several documentaries on Koko, hehe)
And a short bit about All Ball
I know it's a little off the topic, but quite interesting
I read about Koko and her kitties in the Chicken Soup book (so sad when All Ball died), but this is the first time I've seen pics. Thanks!
