Shadowcats are fearsome predators, but will also scavenge. They have thick black fur with white stripings, in size they are between real world tigers or mountain lions.[1]

It's said that shadowcats can smell blood six miles away. They'll eat every shred of meat from a kill and will even crack the bones to get at the marrow. [2] Shadowcats tend to not attack living men unless very starved. [3]

Varamyr Sixskins, a diminutive wildling and a skinchanger, controls three wolves, a snow bear, and a shadowcat.[4] When he wanted a woman from the villages, he would send his shadowcat to get them. His shadowcat used to fight him violently when he would slip into its skin. [5]

A low rumbling growl echoed off the rock. Shadowcat, Jon knew at once. As he rose he heard another, closer at hand. He pulled his sword and turned, listening. [2]
