Book Appearances[]

Varjak Paw[]

Holly and Tam mention Sally Bones in the beginning of the first book - she rules one half of the town.
She first appears with her gang when Varjak Paw and Holly wake up to see her. She questions why she did not know of them. Razor then steps up to her saying he didn't think it would matter, only to be slashed in the muzzle by her. Varjak uses The Way to defend himself. She the questions how he learned these skills, but does not mention them by name. Varjak answers by saying that Jalal taught him. She does not believe him, and says that he'd be long dead. When a dog attacks her gang flees, leaving her alone, screaming that if they stayed they could've defeated it. After a moment of hesitation, she disappears.

The Outlaw Varjak Paw[]

Sally Bones now rules the entire town, Ginger's gang joining her, and him disappearing. She now rules the center also, She also has the 'law' now, which means no one that is not a part of her gang is allowed to hunt or enter their territory, which encompasses most of the city. Holly, Varjak, and Tam are deemed outlaws. If somecat breaks her 'law', she rips their ears and tail off and puts it out in the open for cats.
At the end of the book, Varjak confronts her and the two engage in a climactic, intense fight, in which the two seem evenly matched but Sally eventually gains the upper hand. Varjak holds on until sunrise. The sunlight blinds her, making her flinch. Varjak then pushes her off the building, which results in her falling to her death. The book says there was a chip of the bluest ice melting in the snow, which may have been her eye. It also mentions that one of Holly's mustard-colored eyes turns ice-blue, which may have been her eye.


Sally Bones is a thin white cat, with only one icy blue eye.
