A Feast for Crows

Queen Margaery Tyrell gives her young husband King Tommen I Baratheon three black kittens,[2] which he names Boots, Lady Whiskers, and Ser Pounce. Dorcas makes Tommen a mouse from scraps of fur and ties it on a fishing pole. The kittens love to chase it, and Tommen likes nothing better than jerking it across the floor as the cats pounce on it.[3] Ser Pounce catches a mouse but Lady Whiskers steals it from him. When Tommen tells this to his mother, Queen Regent Cersei Lannister, she replies, "Ser Pounce must learn to defend his rights. In this world the weak are always the victims of the strong."[4]
