It's not really clear in the book, but Word of Goddess says he's more like a Smilodon than anything else but isn't a real species. I used a Machairodus as my reference, though.

One day you might post a big cat portrait that won't go straight into my faves... but I'm not going to hold my breath.

I haven't read "Clan Ground," but now I'll have to track it down.
