A cat or a fox???

>Leafeon bears many similarities to cats and foxes, such as its behaviours like tree climbing, and its cry sounds similar to a cat's meow or a foxes chirping. Its coloration appears to be inspired by the markings found on animals like the Siamese cat or the red fox. It also has traits of plants, such as the ability to utilize photosynthesis. The brown marks of its paws give the appearance that they were buried. In Japan, and around the world, there are stories about domesticated animals that upon entering the forest become wild and eventually become one with it. Leafeon could be an exaggerated example of this story.

Name Origin

>Leafeon is a combination of leaf and eon (an immeasurably long period of time, possibly referring to how long evolution takes naturally). Eon is a suffix all Eevee evolutions share and was Eevee's English prototype name.

>Leafia is derived from leaf.

In, my opinion, Leafeon is based on a cat.
•Firstly, Leafeon's muzzle is a lot rounder and smaller than that of a fox, as fox's muzzles are long, and pointed.
• It has the fur colour of a Siamese Cat (except for the leaves).
•Its body is slender, and the proportions match those of a cat, as foxes have much longer legs, and are much slimmer.
•It also has the same paws as cats: They are known for walking on their toes, so as to walk lightly.
•Leafeon has feline eyes, having the characteristic slitted pupil that cats have
•It's cry sounds like a cat meowing (although I guess you can interpret it as a fox as well)
•Leafeon's tail is held high, showing another trait that is shared by cats.

I guess this is an opinion question... To me Leafeon looks like a cat.. XD
Anyway, if you read Leafeon's wiki, you'll see what other cat-like features it has: http://pokemon.wikia.com/wiki/Leafeon
