Every cat lover knows that their favorite feline is part dragon. This new monster for Dungeons & Dragons is inspired by my cat Tomas, a ginger tabby who would be an excellent wizard’s familiar.
Dragon Cats look like typical housecats but have draconic wings and can cough up flaming hairballs.

Keen Senses. The dragon cat has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight, hearing, or smell.
Flyby. The cat dragon doesn’t provoke opportunity attacks when it flies out of an enemy’s reach.
Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft, 1 target. Hit: 4 (1d4 + 2) piercing damage.
Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., 1 target. Hit: 6 (1d6 + 2) slashing damage.
Fiery Hairball (Recharge 5–6). The dragon cat coughs up fire in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 12 Dexterity saving throw, taking 9 (3d6) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
Dragon cats were created by a wizard who loved cats and dragons alike. The intelligent, friendly hybrids are highly prized as familiars for wizards. Although they are a similar size and temperament of a house cat, they can live for hundreds of years.
