* The Wulfenbach Bug Squad (more officially known as the Vespiary Squad) of ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has this as one of their hats. Their charges are all [[ForScience modified weasels]], without which the Squad could not do their job as detectors and exterminators. Although they have eight legs, they ''are'' still, very much, weasels of some description. And, they are sooo cute (for a given definition of cute).
** Agatha herself has acquired one after Tarvek rescued several from a crashed Vespiary Squad airship.

* In ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' an actual weasel supposedly infests Polk Middle School (whose ''official'' mascot is a wolf), and is the bane of the janitor's existence. It turns out to be [[spoiler:[[MonsterIsAMommy pregnant and looking for a nest]]; it and its young are then adopted as second mascots by the moved janitor]].

* Though really more of a "Winged Lemur", Momo from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Behaviorally, there's a lot of cat in him -- specifically, [[WriteWhoYouKnow Bryan Konietzko's cat]].

* ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'': Arguably, Ash's (previously Dawn's) Buizel is one of these despite the actual mascots being the [[RodentsOfUnusualSize Rodent of Unusual Size]] and the adorable [[SpotlightStealingSquad yet overused]] [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins Penguin]]. It initially followed in the tracks of previous {{Badass}}es Charizard and Sceptile, and did a very good job of it early on despite being a RidiculouslyCuteCritter. Unfortunately, it hit [[BadassDecay a losing streak]] later on.
