Ser Pounce is a pet kitten of King Tommen I, and a knight anointed through grace of the Seven by the king himself.[1] He is one of the three black kittens (Boots, Lady Whiskers and Ser Pounce) Margaery Tyrell gives Tommen.[2] Some readers believe that Ser Pounce may be "The Puss That Was Promised," and others believe that he could be the warg of Eddard Stark.

A Feast for Crows

A gift of Margaery Tyrell, Ser Pounce is immediately put into the service of the king. Using a training device made by Dorcas, King Tommen personally instructs Ser Pounce in the ways of battle.[3] The chivalry of Ser Pounce won the admiration of all when he allowed Lady Whiskers to make a meal of a pounce he had caught, though Cersei objected that "Ser Pounce must learn to defend his rights. In this world the weak are always the victims of the strong."[4]

A Dance with Dragons

After his mother's return to the Red Keep, King Tommen dines with her and Ser Kevan Lannister. At the dinner, Ser Pounce thwarts an assassination attempt on the king's life by the dark cat Balerion. Due to the vigilance of Ser Pounce, the king managed to escape Balerion's attack unscathed, a feat unmatched by Joffrey's kingsguard. Consequently, many fans have speculated that Ser Pounce may be given the white cloak.[5]
