The statistics presented here describe a (quite big and not so common) housecat.
Cats prefer to sneak up on their prey. Though the dire cat can stalk prey bigger than itself when hungry, they avoid humanoids.
Skills: Cats have a +4 racial bonus on Climb, Hide, and Move Silently checks and a +8 racial bonus on Jump checks. Cats have a +8 racial bonus on Balance checks. They use their Dexterity modifier instead of their Strength modifier for Climb and Jump checks when it is higher. *In areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth, the Hide bonus rises to +8.
