Characters who follow this trope aren't necessarily good guys, but the kind gestures they make are a way of showing that [[AntiVillain they aren't all bad]] - in other words, a scene where they're petting a cat is an example of PetTheDog. This one crops up in {{anime}} a lot due to the way cats are perceived in Japan, [[CatsAreMean as opposed to much of the Western world]].

* {{Lloyd Alexander}} himself seems to be very much this trope if his books are any indication.
** Taran and Fflewddur Fflam in {{Literature/The Chronicles Of Prydain}}, but most notably Fflewddur. When facing the giant wild cat, Llyan, Taran can't help but appreciate the magnificent creature and when Fflewddur had the opportunity to slay her, he didn't. Whether it was out of animal appreciation or cowardice or a mixture of both is never clear[[spoiler:, but the end result is that Llyan becomes Fflewddur's mount and pet by the end of her debut book and he dotes on her every bit as much as she dotes on him]].
** Title character of ''The Marvelous Misadventures of Sebastian''. He rescues a white cat from men accusing it of being a witch and when it follows him, he names it Presto. Sebastian is a very affectionate owner, giving Presto all sorts of silly nicknames (such as "His Most Excellent Catliness" and "Duke of Gauli-Mauli") and making jestful (but somewhat sincere) promises like gifts of silk pillows and gold saucers. Presto himself is a very intelligent cat and helps Sebastian any way he can and in surprising ways.
** Chen Cho of {{The Remarkable Journey of Prince Jen}}, though his feline companion is a magical tiger named Lao-Hu who is capable of talking and occasionally gives Chen Cho advice, so Lao-Hu is less a pet and more a confidant/traveling companion.

* Nepeta from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. Not only is her Lusus a cat, but she basically emulates cats in every aspect of her life. She also happens to be the nicest troll in the series (so far).

** Roxy and Rose Lalonde are also kind-hearted girls with an association with cats; in Roxy's case she has cloned many FRIENDLY MUTANT KITTENS, and Rose's game sprite is based on her childhood cat Jaspers.
