*** Arguably something of a subversion, since there's some pretty strong hints (like You '''utterly''' traumatizing Greebo, [[{{Badass}} the death that walks like a cat]]... and yes, the kitten's name is 'You'. As in, 'Hey You') that Granny and the kitten are kindred spirits; there is, after all, very little chance that Granny Weatherwax could tolerate a stupid animal. You, like her mistress, happens to other people.
