History[edit | edit source]
- Delta Dynamics has the first meeting between the Caitian species and the Federation in 2219, while the Decipher RPG has the first meeting as late as 2249.

Biology[edit | edit source]
- The genetic link between at least the Caitians and Kzinti was first suggested in Star Trek Log Five. Worlds of the Federation says that Caitians are believed to have descended from a Kzinti colony.
Average heights for Caitians are 1.7 meters (males) and 1.5 meters (females). Average weights are 80-95 kgs (males) and 50-65 kgs (females). Normal body temperature range is 101-102.5 Fahrenheit. Normal pulse range is 110-130. Nornal respiration is 100. Normal blood pressure is 110/80. As of 2289, the normal life expectancies were 39.8 Terran standard years for males and 42.6 for females.

All Caitains serving with humans in Starfleet are required to take daily injections of tisourine to keep their hair from falling out and causing an allergic reaction in humans who are also allergic to cats. (Absolute Horizon)
Religions[edit | edit source]
The V'rrow was a Caitian religious order. M'reen's mother was a high priestess of that order, whose members were adept at sensing the "psychic auras" of many Federation species. (Star Trek: Avenger: "Belonging")
