The hair of the Wampus cat was used as a wand core by the American wandmaker Johannes Jonker.[1] Jonker experimented with many other cores before settling on the hair of this creature as his preferred kind.[1] The core was also used by Isolt Sayre and James Steward when they begun making their own wands in the 17th century.[2] The Cherokee have most extensively studied the Wampus cat, they shared native regions, and are the only people able to obtain it to use as a wand core.[3]
