* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'' a cat is one of the animals which wizarding students can bring as a pet to Hogwarts. In this case the cats are merely pets, not familiars. In book three, Hermione gets a very perceptive (part-Kneazle) cat named Crookshanks. A witch and teacher, Professor [=McGonagall=], can ''turn into'' a cat. [[EvilTeacher Umbridge]] has a CatsAreMean motif whenever she's not being compared to a toad, but doesn't actually own one. Instead, she has a cat Patronus and a collection of rather tacky cutlery with enchanted pictures of cats on them.

* Both played straight with one sisterhood of witches and handily subverted with all other sisterhoods in TheDarkEye. Most witches do have some type of {{Familiar}} though.

And doesn't that make [[JustForPun purrfect]] sense? Everyone knows that CatsAreMagic, not to mention [[CatsAreSuperior the best]], so of ''course'' any witch worth her broomstick would be owned by one, if not a whole clowder of cats. In fact it's not uncommon for a witch to have a such a soft spot for her feline friends that she doubles as a CrazyCatLady, owning a dozen or more. Such witches are usually considered quirky and tend to be of the good variety, the same if a witch owns cats with coat colors outside the stereotypical black. The cat is the most common {{Familiar}} for a witch by far, though sometimes the association is so strong that it's not that the witch ''owns'' a cat, but she ''is'' a cat!

* The eponymous Sakura of ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'' has instead what appears to be a small yellow lion cub (or teddy bear, depending on whom you ask) with wings, that she calls "Kero-chan." It turns out that "Kero-chan"'s real name is Cerberus, and he's really a full-sized, armored ''lion'' with wings. Similarly, Eriol has what looks like a small, winged black kitten, but is really a panther with blue butterfly wings. Both of these animals are Sun Guardians.



* Also subverted in African mythology, where witches rode dogs.
