Honestly, I've never liked the idea of Caitian females having any sort of mane. The only significant reason MALE lions have them is for display, i.e. to appear bigger to rivals.
Caitians are not lions.
I'm well aware of that, as well as the fact they not even remotely REAL. The point was about explaining why a particular and specific Earth feline has a mane where ALL others do not. A female Caitian having a mane makes little sense in this regard based on REALITY. Of course, if you have a theoretical purpose to explain why a female felinoid would need a mane, I'd be happy to read it.
