Cats of Queen Beruthiel
Beruthiel with her white cat by Paula DeSante
Wicked spies under the service of Queen Beruthiel of Gondor, who wished to learn the battle plans of Gondor so her home country, Harad, could attack. She had ten evil black cats who could see in the dark and understand all languages. Her white cat spied on the black cats. Beruthiel did not trust the black cats. Eventually Beruthiel and her cats all were banished from Gondor by the King, Tarannon Falastrur. They set sail for Harad. They were never seen again.
