Bug? The Cat Lord is not an animal.

This is sort of random, but I noticed just now that the Cat Lord, unlike all other 'f' monsters, is not an animal (i.e. doesn't have the ANIMAL flag). Is that intentional or an oversight?

I can only presume it has something to do with the Andrew Lloyd Weber production, and must therefore be expunged and forgotten, forthwith.

The Jellicle Cats do not appreciate your insubordination.

Intentional; I think it's an early AD&D'ism. Also true in ADOM.

Sorry to raise a really old thread, but shouldn't the cat lord be an animal? it's a feline after all..

I'm just melee'ing him now with the whip of gothmog which has slay_animal and (in my mind) ought to be smiting this chap...

I have no idea what a cat lord is, but I agree that it should either be an animal or else should not have the letter of an animal. Make it a 'p' or an 'h' if it is a person.

I always pictured the Cat Lord as a bipedal catman, and that would probably not count as an animal. One could argue that all living beings are animal, but then we're not taking Eru's intelligent design in consideration, he probably intended Elves and Dwarves and Men to be the crown of creation, in his image. Then Morgoth created/modified Orcs and Trolls and such to be in his image. And then Dragons were also an exception. And suddenly there weren't that many animals left who were animals.

then wouldn't it be an 'H' for hybrid?

I think if it remains as 'f' for feline, then it should be classed as an animal and thus vulnerable to slay_animal. not that it matters for my current guy who took him down with gothmog anyway, but I think the point stands
