The Knives Cat is a monster in Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy.

Description Edit

"Knives Cats quickly confuse opponents with deft leaps and bounds, before plunging in to attack with alarming speed, razor sharp claws fully extended."
Book of Sphinx
"Not the friendliest feline around."
Monster Inspector
"A much faster and more deadly relative of the Crabhands. Possess a remarkable sense of hearing. While humanoid in shape, you only have to see a Knives Cat hunting to appreciate where the feline half of its name comes from."
Abydos Museum

Traits, Appearance, and Abilities Edit

The Knives Cat, unlike typical felines, walks on two legs. It has two retractable blades on its wrists, hence the name Knives Cat. They have brown fur and an angry face, suggesting that they are highly carnivorous.

The Knives Cat will begin by running circles around its target, making it easy to lose track of it and be hit. At an opening, it will slash at its target with its claws. They can also use their claws to shield themselves, similarly to the Sharpbeak. On occasion it will pounce forward at its target.

Strategy for SphinxEdit

These monsters can be tricky to kill because they can repel sword blows when their claws are in a defensive position. It helps if you let it try and attack you, as then it will not assume its defensive position as quickly.
