Salem Saberhagen is a warlock who used to be a human being but was turned into a cat by the Witch's council due to some trouble he got himself in (World domination). He now resides in Greendale with the Spellman family.
When Sabrina has a problem and wants to fix it with magic, Salem often encourages her, or even supplies her with a magical object to help her fix her problem, which usually makes things worse for Sabrina. For example, in "Anywhere But Here," Salem gave Sabrina the watch that she uses to fast-forward herself to adulthood. In "No Time To Be A Hero," he gives her an hourglass that allows her to go back in time.
Nonetheless, he has a great big heart and cares for Sabrina.
