Here's my two coppers worth on cats from outer space:

I agree wholeheartedly with the wisdom penalty, although I don't
necessarily agree with the strength bonus.  I have been running a
campaign for a few years now in which I included a feline race similar to
the Tabaxi (I didn't know about Tabaxi at the time).  In my world, the
Panta - a generally dark-furred, race of cat people settled on the world
from another planet somewhere.  My guidelines are a -2 to Wis and a +1 to
Dex.  My personal bias.

In addition, to make them more cat-like, the Panta always land on their
feet and suffer no damage from falls of 20' or under.  A fall from
a greater height requires a save vs paralyzation (modified for dex
reaction adjustment) for half-damage.

This society is more Renaissance European in flavor and the Panta have
tried to distance themselves from their more animalistic nature,
preferring a swashbuckler type attitude to a more beastial/nature based
attitude. They are fun-loving and curious, but seldom serious.

Other stats:  They are generally of human height although somewhat
lighter and I allow them to be a fighter (12th), thief (12th), bard, or
fighter/thief.

If members of the list would like to see a more detailed description of
this "branch" of the Tabaxi family I would be happy to submit it to the
list and will also indicate their known locations on Jim Sales' Map of
the Known Spheres.
