Well I believe lions, leopards and cheetahs suffocate their prey. 300 pounds of muscle locked onto your windpipe for your last couple minutes of life- I think that would be worse..
If I'm remembering the Discovery Channel correctly, tigers like to kill with a single bite to the spinal cord. I feel like that would be about as painless a big cat death as you're going to get.
