From Puss in Boots to Macbeth’s Grimalkin, to Gareth the time-traveling cat, to the sleuthing Siamese in “The Cat Who …” mystery series, cats have earned as prominent a place in fictional plots as they have in their owner’s hearts.

Some genres have more than their share of cats. Mysteries, for example, are awash in crime-solving cats.
