The Cattmag (Hi."Plainscat",Du."Cathmaes") was a huge, rare, gray cat of the Sabretooth family with faint tabby markings that enabled it to hide with a degree of skill surprising in so large a beast. A nocturnal predator, it had huge forequarters and great (5-7 inch) fangs. Its body tapered from the shoulders to strong but compact hindquarters. Using its long tail, the Cattmag could balance itself when leaping, which it did prodigiously: up to 150 ft horizontally and 40 ft vertically. The cat could be found (when it could be found at all) in northern hills and mountains.
