DWJ has several short stories about cats. In "Little Dot" there are several
cats in a farmhouse, all with recogniseable territories. Although one of the
cats tells the story the only magic user is their man.

"Little Dot." In Firebirds: An Anthology of Original Fantasy and Science
Fiction, edited by Sharyn November, 297-335. New York: Firebird, 2003.
