A cat was a small, typically furry, carnivorous mammal. Dæmons could take the form of cats, like Professor Docker's dæmon. They could be found in Lyra's world, where their main purpose was to keep places clear of mice, or in Will's world where they could be kept as pets. In the world of Cittàgazze, cats were feared and hated.[1] Lyra Silvertongue compared her childhood to that of a half-wild cat.
