Witches' cats disappear

As a boy my father experienced the following. It happened when he was a shoemaker's apprentice in Hoorn. Walking home one evening he saw five white cats at a crossing. Because he had heard people talk about witches, he took a stone and threw it at the cats. Straight away they were gone, but he had not seen any of them run away.
