    Goofy word question

    This sentence: The furry feline quadruped reclined upon the floor covering.

    Am trying to figure out if "quadruped" in this sentence in this context is a noun? I don't even know that "quadruped" is a word or not?

    Anybody have thoughts?

    Quadruped is a noun here, meaning a four-footed animal. Both "furry" and "feline" describe this animal.
