Unfortunately, it's things like that (hyenas being feline in genus but canine in form; convergent evolution) that give creationists some of their ammunition.
Since their 'science' book tells them bats are birds, that's no real surprise
Looking at that collection of animals, it seems that the family of the suborder feliformia we're most familiar with (ie the cats) are the odd one out wrt facial features. All the others have more dog-like snouts.
I wonder, does that mean that cats split off from the other members of the feliformia first?
