Usually a magical cat [[AmplifiedAnimalAptitude will be intelligent]], but even non-sapient cats can have magical powers. Wittingly or not, cats may even be using their abilities to keep TheMasquerade. Despite all this, cats are not often BondCreatures, except maybe to witches in [[LighterAndSofter fluffiest]] of works. This is perhaps due to their reputations of being aloof and independent. This trope may mean a cat is an EvilSorcerer if used in a story where CatsAreMean.

* ''EnchantedForestChronicles'' - Morwen's cats are clearly able to do magical ''cattish'' things (like casually pass through barriers) and can aid in managing spells like any familiar. Their full affinity with magic is really only clear in the book told from Morwen's perspective, when we can hear what all of them are saying. In the same book we meet a couple of other magic users' familiar cats.
* ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' The Cheshire cat can disappear and reappear at will, and appears to be particularly unusual even by Wonderland's rather permissive standards.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' book "''Ghost Story''", Harry Dresden's cat Mister proves able not only to see ghosts, but to physically shoulder-check ''and be stopped midair by them''. It's explained that all cats are able to see ghosts, [[CatsAreSuperior they just don't usually find it interesting]], and are apparently one of the few things from the mortal world that fairies are genuinely terrified of. Mister also looks exactly the same under a wizard's Sight as he does otherwise, and is the only being in the whole series to do so.

* And in Creator/HPLovecraft's novel ''The Dream Quest Of Unknown Kadath'', the cats of the Dreamlands can travel to the Moon on their own power and have a secret language. They worship Bast and aid the hero in his quest. The only thing the Earth-cats fear are the cats from Saturn, who are even more powerful than they, but are in league with the {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.

** Mercedes Lackey loves cats, though, so wise, talkative, and mystically-inclined felines tend to wind up in her stories. The ''[[HeraldsOfValdemar Mage Storms]]'' trilogy and her ''Literature/TalesOfTheFiveHundredKingdoms'' provide examples.
