Griddlebone is a white fluffy Persian queen who first appears in the poem 'Growltiger's Last Stand'.' She inadvertently leads to the demise of her suitor, the dreaded Growltiger, to the hands of a gang of Siamese cats. She is one of the cats whose wicked deeds are widely known as an alleged agent for the cat who controls the operations, "The Napoleon of Crime," Macavity.


Griddlebone appears in most productions of the play, usually played by the same actress playing Jellylorum, but not in the film version.
