Varjak Paw Wiki

Varjak's Gang[]

Varjak Paw's gang, the Free Cats, consisted of several cats from outlying gangs and several cast-offs. The majority consisted of Mrs Moggs' gang, but he took over prior to her death. Varjak's gang's major involvement in the series was the battle of the graveyard and the death of Sally Bones. Their greatest strength is their teamwork and family bond with each other.
