Mintchoc is the black-and-white cat belonging to Polly Whittacker's Granny. She was named for her frantic fondness for mint-chocolate ice cream, and is what Diana Wynne Jones describes as a very understanding cat. When Polly is feeling anxious, Mintchoc comes over and winds around her legs purring.

For some reason, the first time Mintchoc sees Thomas Lynn, when he is bringing Polly back to Granny's after the funeral, the cat suddenly puts up her tail, fluffs out her fur and runs off until he leaves again.
