possibly a roman cat?

thanks discardingimages.com
This tubby fellow with Patton Oswalt lips is found in a French illustrated manuscript dated 1454: Jean Mansel, "La Fleur des histoires ou les hystores rommaines abregies." This seems to be a book about the history of Roman princes, and I've no idea whether this guy's presence in the margin of folio 257r has any relation to the subject. Would you like to see the entire page he's on? I think I have it linked here.
