In the United Kingdom, the word "cat" can also mean a domestic cat.

Gazouilles (or Gassous) means "long-tled cats", referring to their unusual long tls. The word "Gazouille" can be used to describe cats which have very large heads or pointed ears.

Gobineau de l'Angleterre (Cat man of England)

A name used in France for a feline which is physically rather large and often has a rather elongated and pointed muzzle. Notable examples include le Chat-Gigant (Big Cat) of the late 19th century, the Lion Hound of the early 20th century, and the Lion Hound of the late 20th century. "Gobineau de l'Angleterre" is the name commonly used to refer to the Lion Hound, and "Chat-Gigant" or "Chat-Gigantin" is the name generally used for the Big Cat.

Gojubat or goyavak (Poona/Uttar Pradesh, India)

A specialised breed of cat originating from India. The Gojubat is particularly known for its large size, long "snout" and long legs, but this is not a defining characteristic, as it can also be found in a slightly smaller and more compact form. The name of the Gojubat originates from the name of the ancient Poona region in India, which translates to "hills" in Sanskrit.

Gorgoraptor (Pekinese/Philippines)

A type of cat originating from the Philippines. Like many Asian breeds, the Gorgoraptor is often called a Pekinese, despite the fact that it is of distinct appearance and much larger than the Chinese type of Pekinese, which today is a recognised breed in its own right. The name of the Gorgoraptor, translates to "lion-like-beast" in Latin, although this is not an accurate translation of the word.

Griffon cat (Cat-o-Leufu/Rhodesia)

A cat that is small in size but large in head. Due to their size, the Griffon cats have often been compared to small bears and have been called such since the 17th century. They are also known for their unusually large "nostrils" which are much larger than any other felid's, making the "Griffon-cat-like" moniker a true compliment to their appearance. The Griffon Cat of Rhodesia became extinct in the 1950s, and there are no known modern specimens today. The name of the cat is derived from the word "Griffon" in Latin, which is sd to be a compound of "Gryff" and "Fons", meaning "bear-like" in Old French.

Guenon (Guenon-Ménil/France)

A type of cat with a long body, long legs and a small head that is often sd to resemble a "squirrel's". Some of the early descriptions of these cats were as "long-tled" and "stout-bodied", and "of a russet colour" with a head that is "almost half the length of the body". These descriptions are similar to the "long-faced" or "nose-less" cats found in modern day East and Southeast Asia. Guenons are the most docile of cats, and very rarely fight with other cats or other animals. They are very playful and friendly, and will even often "play wrestle" with other cats. Because of this, they are often kept as house pets and have even been known to play with and live with dogs.
