The cactus a plant which is native to the New World is a fatty plant which stores in its tissue reserves of "sap" in order to be able to survive during long periods of drought. As to the prickly pear plant which is a plant native to Mexico it is part of the cactus family but is in the main grown for its fruit hence the name.
