In heraldry, a beast with the body of a cat, but tufted, with an eagle's claws in place of the forepaws. It has sprouting antler-like horns and a long tufted tail. It does not, according to this description, noticeably resemble a greyhound, so I don't know why it's called what it is.

The calygreyhound is peculiar to the family of de Vere, the Earls of Oxford. (That includes the one some loonies claim wrote Shakespeare.)
