In the spirit of Halloween, the Vanguard has decided to publish a selection of GIFS featuring our favorite, beloved black cat: Salem Saberhagen.
If you’re old enough to have watched ’90s sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch growing up, you’d know that Salem is a black cat who lives with Sabrina Spellman and her two quirky aunts—all of whom happen to be witches.
Except Salem is a witch trapped in a cat’s body, a sentence given to him for attempting to take over the world.
Here’s to you, Salem! Enjoy!

“I will not be ignored!”
“As long as long as you drop everything and stay focused on me. I should be fine.”
“Quoth the raven, ‘Bite me.'”
Sabrina: “Salem, do you think the Witches’ Council will grant the time reversal?”
Salem: “I’m the wrong witch to ask. They weren’t very lenient with me. Sentenced to a hundred years as a cat…and for what?”
Sabrina: “I don’t know. For what?”
Salem: “Oh, like any young kid, I dreamed of world domination. Of course, they really crack down when you act upon it.”
“You listening, witch?”
“Let’s give a big, warm welcome to sadness.”
“A tassel? Don’t toy with me, you saucy minx.” [plays with tassel]
Pilgrims: “Witch! Witch!”
Salem: “Pilgrims! Pilgrims!”
“Twelve drummers drumming, eleven pipers piping…one cat crumbling. Turn it off…TURN IT OFF!”
“How do you like my new litter box?” [maniacal laughter]
“Halloween… is it just a date on the calendar that people from England don’t know about? Or is it a state of mind? Or a state of being? I frankly don’t know. But come along on our Halloween journey, and maybe by the end, we’ll all know… is this lining real satin?”
Sabrina: [Reading letter] “Forget my name. I’ve joined the French Foreign Legion. Love, Salem.”
[Salem stuck in the cat door sobbing].
