    So, is Espeon a cat, or a dog? Same with Umbreon... cat or dog?

    ...neither. There might be some vaguely canine or feline features about them, but who says they have to be either?

    if espeon was compared to feline and canine i would say that feline is the better guess...

    They're all fennec foxes. Or at least modeled after them.

    Espeon is based off the "Bakeneko/Nekomata" (Monster Cat) but yeah. They're maily based on foxes with feline like features. I also hear that Eevee and its eeveelutions are based on the "Houkou", a monster wolf that could split into 7 different elemental formes (Water forme, Wind forme, Fire forme, Earth forme, Lightning forme, Metal forme and Wood form).

    Espeon appears to be a fennec fox crossed with a Monster cat.

    Umbreon is probably a fennec fox crossed with something else, as it's not as similar to a fennex fox as eevee, vaporeon, flareon and jolteon.

    I never saw anything cat like about them. Foxes they are.

    i'd say the're all mutated experiments of eevee (which is a squirrel{in my thought}) given different injections of the formulae (lol, heroes reference).

    I'd say they're foxes, i've never seen anything to make me think they're dogs or cats.

    Foxes. They have the face, ears, and build of foxes. They look nothing like cats or dogs.

    They're Eeveelutions. Any resemblence to Terran phylum doesn't make them said Terran phylum.

    I see both feline (particularily in forms like Umbreon and Espeon - as someone mentioned before, Espeon is based on a Nekomata) and vulpine features in their design. Of course, foxes being practically catdogs (more closely related to canines phylogenetically but displaying a wide assortment of traits more common in felines), it almost makes it redundant. ^^;

    The eeveelutions are all based on foxes. Well, Espeon does look a bit like a cat but it's still a fox.

    They're generic mammals, in the same way the Legendary Beasts are collectively known as "Legendary Beasts".

    Speaking of animal resemblance, what animal is Snorlax?

    Foxes with special abilities or powers (kinda like those Bakeneko) are known as Kitsune. I kinda say they are more like kitsune. "Stories depict them as intelligent beings and as possessing magical abilities that increase with their age and wisdom." as Wikipedia says.

    They look like cats combined with foxes.
