A lizard cat resembled a typical housecat if such cat had scaly skin, a serrated back, dorsal spines, and periodically shed its skin. They purred and hissed like normal cats and could be kept as pets, but if allowed outside they would hunt and kill other cats. Their fangs, claws, and vicious natures even made them lethal to humans if sufficiently provoked.
The D'ivers Witch Hurl took the form of nine lizard cats and attacked the occupants of the King's Heel tavern in Spendrugle. In the resulting melee, many of the patrons and two dogs were killed or maimed by the small, vicious animals.
