Well, she was about 8 or 9 when her parents died, wasn't she? And they
knew she was using her brother in some way. Admittedly, what they could
have done was limited, since my impulse (as a non-parent but experienced
live-in aunt) would be to have her magic taken away at that point, and I
think they would have needed help from the Ministry of Magic to do that.
That's where Chrestomanci's admission that he blew off the letter from
Cat's father is so telling. :)
