Default Re: Our dwarves are different

Cats are much stronger for their weight than primates in general and certainly more than comparably sized people.
And some Maine Coons top 20-25 lbs without being obese. My Cerberus wasn't quite that big but did knock down an adult man braced for impact by kicking off the wall. While anecdotal, it does suggest how powerful kitties can be.

I did say, "big house cats", so I wasn't even acting my too often hyperbolic self. (I'm working on it, but have a way to go.)

Now I'm imagining a fantasy setting where the miners are cat-people. Small, hunched, powerful, eat the mine rats, because they like to...
That would make "our dwarves are different" quite true.
