Ermh, there is no sense of some animal having a prehensale tail and be ground dwelling cause that kind of tail is made for clibming. :)

Is it maybe kus-kus (Phalanger)?

Yes it is nocturnal.

Let me append that they do spend some time in trees, but mostly they are terrestrial.

Its tail is SEMI-prehensile

No it is not endangered (though some populations might be threatened... not sure on that)

It is of comparable size with a housecat, can be somewhat larger than the average housecat in adulthood.
