Awhile ago I came across a knight who's heraldic emblem was a house cat rampant. I believe he was Danish (or possibly German) I have a figure painted up for him but I lost track of the name. Does this ring a bell?

The pose is 'Passant Guardant' not 'Rampant' & the crest is 'Sejant Guardant'.

English heraldry has a 'Cat-a-Mountain' (rare) but no domestic moggy. The difference seems to be that the Cat-a-Mountain is bearing its teeth.
