Isn't this trope somewhat misnamed? "Civilized" suggests a higher level of anthropomorphism to me then the animal type described possesses.

They're "civilized" because they share most of the traits that allow humans to build civilization, yet are still very much animals.

Ah, so they live in an "animal civilization", distinct from a "human civilization". Got it. Still think the name is sort of ambiguous.
