Ridgeway Cats make unusual companions. They can be confrontational things, keen to protect their territories, families, and any objects they deem precious. As mages have no choice in their familiar, it can result in some surprising match-ups.
Ridgeways cats make loyal companions and swift allies, capable of driving off even the most bold of wild creatures, but they do not do well living in the confines of human dwellings for too long. Many mages end up travelling or camping, or taking up crafts that require a lot of time outdoors.
