I'd like to see the bibliography for paragraph 3. I don't remember any of that. User:Old Dickens 20:05 15 Aug.2006

Can't tell you the book, but I remember that he does that, too. BTW: The text should be wikified --Death 08:05, 16 August 2006 (CEST)

It's in Maskerade, I think: in the early chapters after the witches have finangled their way to a free coach trip. They stop at a coaching inn for the night, Greebo goes foraging for food, and discovers "Turn Human" is another way for a cat to get out of trouble. --AgProv 01:24, 30 April 2007 (CEST)

"renowned for once chasing a bear up a tree"

This has actually happened somewhere in the continental USA. I'll try to find the photos or links to.--AgProv 01:21, 30 April 2007 (CEST)

Greebo's eye(s)

Hi! In "Wyrd Sisters" Greebo is first presented as a one-eyed cat. Later in Lancre castle Greebo has two (working?) eyes. Am I to understand e.g. that the other eye is blind? Does anyone know?

"Nanny Ogg also kept a cat, a huge one-eyed grey tom called Greebo who divided his time between sleeping, eating and fathering the most enormous incestuous feline tribe." (p.50) "There was a cat sitting in the doorway. Its ears were a couple of perforated stubs, its eyes two yellow slits of easy-going malevolence, its tail a twitching series of question marks as it stared at him.
Greebo had heard that Lady Felmet had a small white female cat and had strolled up to pay his respects." (p.84) From 'Wyrd Sisters' Corgi edition reprinted 1994

The article points out that Greebo has one normal eye and one milky and presumably blind. The two yellow slits are what you get when you try to write three books a year. --Old Dickens (talk) 01:04, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
