* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has a very diverse race of cats called the Khajiit. They vary from resembling very slightly cat-like humans or elves to the high end of LittleBitBeastly to full on PettingZooPeople. Only the last still show up in the series directly, but the first two types are still {{Canon}} despite no longer appearing in the games. Including breeds that have never actually shown up in the games but have still been mentioned in scholary treatises in-game, the Khajiit span the ''full'' extent of the sliding scale of anthropomorphism, right down to ones that aren't even ''bipedal''. Some of them could be mistaken for housecats. Others are used as '''[[PanteraAwesome war mounts]]'''.

While Cat Folk have been depicted with a variety of behavioural and cultural characteristics, it is common to base at least some of their behaviour on feline AnimalStereotypes. Cat Folk based on large predatory cats, such as, [[PantheraAwesome lions, tigers, and panthers]][[labelnote:*]][[Film/TheWizardOfOz Oh my!]][[/labelnote]] are generally depicted as being exceptionally strong and aggressive, with a {{Proud Warrior Race|Guy}} culture. Those based more around domestic cats are often depicted as selfish, arrogant and vain, with their fighting styles bent more towards dirty fighting, speed and agility.

Rakeesh in ''Quest For Glory'' II, III, and V is a major friend and supporting character of the Hero. Finally, ''Quest For Glory'' III has the Leopardmen, a secretive tribe in the jungle.

* The Catteni in Creator/AnneMcCaffrey's ''Literature/{{Catteni}}'' books.

to:

* A major focus of Taylor Anderson's ''Literature/{{Destroyermen}}'' series is on the fight for the Lemurian, anthropomorphic cat-monkeys, survival. The Hrrubans Lemurians are first called cat-monkeys and monkey-cats (depending who you asked aboard the ship) before the term 'Cat is agreed upon as the appropriate diminutive.

* Creator/AndreNorton: the Salariki, who progress with astonishing rapidity from being primitive Proud Warrior Race Guys (''Plague Ship'') to sophisticated members of the interstellar community (''Literature/AndroidAtArms'').
* The Klees of Eelong in ''Literature/ThePendragonAdventure'' are giant, bipedal cats, and the dominant species in that world.

* Creator/AEVanVogt's ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheSpaceBeagle'' had a cat-like alien called Coeurl.

* The Sphinx race in SergeyLukyanenko's ''Today, Mom!'' is a race of feline humanoids living on UsefulNotes/{{Venus}}. In the FilmOfTheBook ''Asiris Nuna'', they look mostly human with slight facial features reminiscent of cats and dreads. Their dress and architecture are reminiscent of Ancient Egypt. Shidla is a Sphinx who figures the most in the book and is the only one seen in the film. He snarls a lot and likes to call everyone "kitty". "Dog" is, apparently, an insult to his people. Like cats, they can see in the dark very well. In the film, Shidla dodges missiles [[Film/TheMatrix Neo]]-style.
* Creator/AndreNorton's The People in "A Breed to Come" were a race of sapient cats descended from modern Earth cats

The Kumumgah (more famously known as Sand People or Tusken Raiders) have been reported to look ''slightly'' catlike under their bandage-masks; other than being savage, however, they do not correspond at all to pantherine creatures. And the Bothans are sometimes described as feline but look more like civets (small, weasel-shaped carnivores that are closely related to cats).
* Creator/RobertWestall's ''Literature/UrnBurial'' has the Fefethil; a race of anthro-cats who look like humanoid cheetahs, complete with cat-ears, tails and eyes but human-esque hands and fingers (albeit with retractable claws still).

* The Iskai of ''VideoGame/{{Albion}}'' look like cat people at first glance, but then not so much. They have a weird and elaborate set of characteristics: tall and thin humanoids with fur, a muzzle like a great cat's, huge eyes, differently-coloured long hair on their heads, digitigrade paws, bony hooks instead of claws, some gratuitous spikes at the elbows, bony ridges on their face, a telepathic forehead organ, four nipples[=/=]breasts, and a PrehensileTail.



* The Ecaflips in ''VideoGame/{{Dofus}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'' are cat people and possess some feline traits.



* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'', the Beast Laguz tribe are based on both variations of cats: the smaller, quicker ones are based on house cats, while the larger ones are based on wild cats.
* In ''VideoGame/GemsOfWar'', the inhabitants of the Pridelands are often some sort of feline/humanoid combination; the Pride Hunter and Rex Warrior are lion-esque, while the Shadow Hunter is black-panther-esque. (There are also sabertooth lions, but they're just that, not cat folk.)
* ''VideoGame/GuildWars'' has the Charr, who play to the tiger end of the spectrum and, as a playable race in the second game, are highly disciplined soldiers and the most technologically sophisticated race in the setting, going full bore steampunk as opposed to the other races' more traditional fantasy looks. Played with a little in that they aren't just anthropomorphic felines, with horns, two sets of ears, and other physiological differences.



* Rengar from ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' is a leonine humanoid whose backstory and motivations are more than a little reminiscent of a Franchise/{{Predator}}. His Headhunter skin further drives this point home.



* ''Nomad'' (AKA ''Project Nomad'') has the Phelonese, a stuck-up matriarchal race of felines. Unfortunately, you have to deal with them, if you want to get the Quietus missiles, which can OneHitKill almost any ship in the game. They'll bring up their superiority every chance they get. Oh, and don't get in a fight with them, or they'll use those same missiles against you. At this point, it'll depend on other systems, such as thrusters (how fast can your ship turn to get them in front of you), targeting sensors (how fast can you get a lock), and missile loaders (Quietus missiles are notoriously slow to load). Shields at this point are useless, given the nature of the weapon.



* The Lombaxes of ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' are a race of bipedal, catlike aliens with a strong affinity for weapons and technology. With an exception or two, such as Ratchet himself, the entire species has been hunted into extinction ([[spoiler:or has fled to an alternate dimension, rather]]) by Emperor Tachyon.



* ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}'''s Felineko are a race of Cat Folk who follow several cat stereotypes, such as being fiercely independent, quite aggressive, moody, calculating, agile, and naturally skilled at magic. They come in several different breeds, from common house cats to tigers.



* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' has the Caitians and the Ferasians, the latter being copyright-friendly versions of the Kzinti. Their backstory implies they were once the same race, but the Ferasans did extensive genetic modifications.
* ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' features the Cathar, a mostly Republic-aligned race of humanoid felines. The first NonPlayerCompanion of the Republic Trooper class is a Cathar trooper Aric Jorgan.
