The witches' animals:

The first witch has a familiar in the form of a cat, with its name being Greymalkin. Greymalkin means grey cat. The grey part is the colour, the malkin part was a nickname for Matilda or Maud that could be used as a name for a cat.

The second witch has a familiar in the form of a toad, with its name being Paddock.
