Top Ten Tuesday: Ten terrific fictional pets

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Characters I’d Name a Pet After, but I thought I’d switch it up a bit and focus instead on great doggos and kitties in fiction.

Who doesn’t love a good animal story? Here are some of the very good dogs and cats of my recent reading:

Favorite dogs:

1. Rollo (Outlander by Diana Gabaldon)
2. Mutt (Kate Shugak series by Dana Stabenow)
3. Mouse (Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
4. Jess (A Boy & His Dog at the End of the World by C. A. Fletcher)
5 & 6. Little Ann & Old Dan (Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls)
7. Bongo (The Twisted Ones by T. Kingfisher)

TV Rollo

And a few cool cats too:

8. Adso (Outlander by Diana Gabaldon)
9. Medea (Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs)
10 & 11. (because they’re a pair, and I can’t exclude either one!) Cagney & Lacey (Toby Daye series by Seanan McGuire)

TV Adso (cutie pie)

What great dogs and cats of fiction can you think of?

  1. I like your take on the topic. I haven’t watched/read any of these but that cat looks like the sweetest thing ever.

  2. Great list! A few of my recent favorite fictional animals are S.T. in ‘Hollow Kingdom’ (anthropomorphic crow) and the main character’s albino pug (‘Good Boy’) in ‘Snapdragon.’ 🙂
