Felines are carnivorous predators that usually hunt by sneaking up on their prey to pounce upon it. Much like in real life, they vary in size from a few pounds to several hundred pounds, and most wild felines can kill prey considerably larger than themselves. Only a few species of felines are strong swimmers.

Cats

Cats are domesticated felines, and are also called house cats. They are found in Elwynn Forest, Teldrassil, Darnassus, Darkshore, Dun Morogh, Stonetalon Mountains, Azuremyst Isle, Mulgore, Barrens, Alterac Mountains, Hillsbrad Foothills, Winterspring, Stranglethorn Vale, Swamp of Sorrows, Badlands, Thousand Needles, Zul'Gurub, Ghostlands, Eversong Forest, Netherstorm, Blade's Edge Mountains, Durotar, and Silvermoon City.

Twinkle, the white house cat, wanders near Falcon Watch in Hellfire Peninsula.

A type of feline called a saber is also the night elf racial mount.

Though hunters can respec their pet cats into Cunning or Tenacity, they are inherently Ferocity. In addition to the abilities that come standard with all pets ([Growl] and [Avoidance]) and those given to their natural or retrained specialization, all cats are given the following:

Their appealing looks, commonness throughout the game, and variety make them a popular choice. Their Prowl ability works well with a night elf hunter's [Shadowmeld].

Subspecies

The subspecies below can be tamed by hunters.
