I actually think that nichelings, while they may look like dogs or cats, are actually descendants of an entirely different group: The viverrids.

These carnivorians share multiple similarities with the nichelings, and they are related to hyenas, like the bearyena, which is the closest relative of the nichelings. Nichelings also cant breed with ramfoxes, which are canines, so  this makes sense. My theory is that after a mass extinction, many ecologigal niches were emptied, so viverrids were able to come down from the trees and diversify in many, many ways, giving rise to the nichelings. I also think that nichelings may be related to mustelids, because they also share similarities.
