Happy Caturday!

Tor.com recently post an article about “Fantastical Cats Who Are More Than They Seem” and we decided it would be a purrrfect Caturday post. (There are a few slight spoilers in the post, so BEWARE.)

The article mentions Mogget from the Abhorsen series by Garth Nix. Mogget appears to be a white cat with a collar that has a tinkling little bell, which isn’t very unusual.. until he starts talking. It’s revealed that Mogget is definitely more than just a cat due to the things that he knows, though, he does very much like fresh fish. I personally recommend this series for juveniles and up!

Next is Lying Cat from the graphic novel series, Saga. Lying Cat has the ability to know when a person is lying and she doesn’t hesitate to tell you about it either. This is probably pretty helpful to her bounty hunter companion. This series is a bit more adult so more mature teens and adults are great for this series.

Then, in the photos above, is Terry Pratchett’s Greebo is a tomcat who belongs to a witch named Nanny Ogg. He’s quite the killer, responsible for the deaths of vampires, elves, etc. But Nanny Ogg still thinks he’s adorable. 

Also mentioned is Bast from Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and Princess Arjumand from To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis

We found some fantastic art while looking up these cool cats so take a look at them here: [x]  [x]  [x]

YOUR CAT’S NAME IS MARLOWE. *squeals*

FUN FACT: there is a cat who lives next door who has almost identical markings in grey, so we’ve started calling her Shakespeare.
