Is it just me or is the notion of "caniform" and "feliform" really outdated? Since when do entire clades of animals have to be lumped in with either group, boiling them down to cat-like and dog-like?

Its just called Binturong. It is the species name (Arctictis binturong) of an animal from southeast asia. In these countries, cat is translated to kucing, billee, pusa, Mæw, or chhma in these countries. None of those are binturong.

maybe obsessed is too strong of a word
but when i found out about them i got insta fascinated
They looked so discheveled and unkempt but also so cute and comfy.
They looked so unique to what i was used to and their bear and catlike features mixed with a tiny bit of monky made them just that more interesting.
It amazed me that such an animal exists and i hadn't heard of it.
I spent some time looking up pics and i used them as reaction images sometimes, they'd often enter my mind at that point in time too.
I stopped at some point and hadn't really given bearcats any thought recently until this thread

Also i sorta love both their size and shape.
They simultaneously look stocky and big, but they also have some finesse and elegance.
Also their size sorta makes me think of a dog sized cat.
They're sorta the right inbetween of not being small enough to look weak and harmless, and being big and scary.

Their name is so fun to say. Binturong. Binturong.

Hello everyone. but as a cat binturong myself, I must say it seems you are msiguided in your understanding the cat and binturong. So I'd like to take this opportunity to clear up some confusion.

You see, the binturong, the cat and the feliform are three cotemporal and consubstantial beings and while the three are distinct, they are one essence. Th essence of Bearcat Binturung, AKA The Sloth Bear Squirrel Looking Thing.

It has its purpose and it is phylogenetically correct, unless we discover something new.
