CAT CREEK (Lipscomb County). Cat Creek rises five miles northeast of Lipscomb in central Lipscomb County (at 36°14' N, 100°15' W) and runs south for four miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek, two miles east of Lipscomb (at 36°14' N, 100°14' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain with some local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loams that support mesquite and grasses.
