Well-known Cats in Literature
You don’t need to look far to find cats with character in literary works. Of course, TS Elliot devoted a series of poems to cats in his Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats on which the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Cats was based. For anyone looking for inspiration for a feline character this is a great starting point.
JK Rowling incorporated two cats into her Harry Potter series. Hermione’s cat Crookshanks and Filch the caretaker’s partner in surveillance, Mrs Norris. Remember also that Professor McGonigal’s animagus is a cat.
A perfect Halloween cat character is ‘Church‘, the family cat killed on the road in Stephen King’s Pet Semetary, restored to a kind of half-life in mis-shapen form after being buried in the forbidden part of the graveyard.
