Magical Cats….They are Everywhere.

Have you noticed the clowder of cats lately? Not just any cats…MAGICAL cats.  When is the last time you read about a magical dog? It happens…but not as often as cats. More often a story about a dog shows them saving the day or being there for you when you need them the most….but cats? Cats are sneaky and full of magic…don’t turn your back on them because you’ll never know what they are going to do next. Behold the evidence:

Five original stories where strange changes occur, from a boy and a cat changing places and a young man learning the price of selfishness to an invisible princess finding herself.

A talking cat, intelligent rats, and a strange boy cooperate in a Pied Piper scam until they try to con the wrong town and are confronted by a deadly evil rat king.

Young Christopher Chant, in training to become the next Chrestomanci or head controller of magic in the world, becomes a key figure in a battle with renegade sorcerers because he has nine lives LIKE A CAT..

Plain Kate's odd appearance and expertise as a woodcarver cause some to think her a witch, but friendship with a talking cat and, later, with humans help her to survive and even thrive in a world of magic, charms, and fear.

Sabriel, daughter of the necromancer Abhorsen, must journey into the mysterious and magical Old Kingdom to rescue her father from the Land of the Dead. Her only companion...a fluffy white talking cat who may actually be a demon intent of her destruction.

For three years, seventeen-year-old Cas Lowood has carried on his father's work of dispatching the murderous dead, traveling with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat, but everything changes when he meets Anna, a girl unlike any ghost he has faced before.

Princess Wisdom, who yearns for a life of adventure beyond the kingdom of Montagne, Tips, a soldier keeping his true life secret from his family, Fortitude, an orphaned maid who longs for Tips, and Magic the cat form an uneasy alliance as they try to save the kingdom from certain destruction.

Cassel Sharpe knows he killed his best friend. He also knows that the cat he keeps seeing in his dreams is trying to tell him something. Could the two things be related? This book is Harry Potter meets the mob.

What is YOUR favorite cat book–magical or otherwise? Give me a shout back in the comments, people!

Also I have a question can you do a poll saying who will win Harry Potter or Percy Jackson? I bet lots of people will have fun with that.

Hi, Awsome girl! Warriors are a GREAT addition to this list! And thanks for your idea about doing a poll. I know there is a way to put polls on the blog, so I’ll have to look that up and hopefully start out with Harry vs. Percy :)
