Answer: 
Cation is an atom with a positive charge... one or more of its electrons are missing, resulting a positive charge. There are electron orbitals around atoms and each orbital needs certain number of electrons to be 'stable'.
anions have one or more extra electrons resulting in a negative charge.
Cation is formed by lose of electron which is an endothermic process, while anion is formed by gain of electron which is an exothermic process.

Answer: 

Cations and anions are both ions. The difference between a cation and an anion is the net electrical charge of the ion..ref:http://chemistry.about.com/od/chemistryterminology/a/What-Is-The-Differe...
