Jame is bonded to an ounce, a hunting cat rather like a small leopard. These felines are specially
bred in catteries. In Rathilien, they come in different colours from the common brown to the highly prized
Royal Gold. According to the encyclopedia an ounce (Panthera uncia) or asian snow leopard
has light cream or grey fur with large black spots and is no larger than a leopard.
Leopards are used as hunting cats by the Thanes of the Skyrr clans.
The largest felines on Rathillien are the Arrin-ken. These 600lb felines are the nearly immortal third race of the Kencyrath so, despite their appearance, should count as people rather than cats.
