Such would indicate Insurrection was after the Dominion War. Riker spoke in past tense.
Because the Tzenkethi aren't the Kzinti, but the Ferasans are.

Batlike-eared cat people who hate the Federation and have telepaths?

The TNG writer who invented the Tzenkethi described them as heavily-armored lizards. The link to the Kzinti was SOLEY in the inspiration for their name, not for their culture or physical description.
