A Kneazle is a magical creature, similar to a cat in appearance. They have spotted, speckled or flecked fur, large ears and a lightly plumed tail, like a lion. They make excellent pets if they like a witch or wizard. They are very intelligent, independent and occasionally aggressive, and have an uncanny ability to detect suspicious and distrustful people. They can also safely guide their owner home.
Kneazles can interbreed with normal cats, and generally have up to eight kittens in every litter. Kneazle owners are required to have a license to own the animals.
