Memakata is a female black cat. Her first owner was supernatural sleuth Mark Merlin.
During one of Merlin's earlier adventures, he and his assistant, Elsa, discovered a mystical cat-headed amulet which enabled Merlin to transfer his "life force" into the body of a black cat named Memakata, whom they found in the tomb of the pharaoh of the same name. Memakata became Merlin's household pet and in times of danger, Merlin would "mind hop," between Memakata's body and his own.
After Merlin's death and reincarnation as Prince Ra-Man,  Memakata became his pet. Since Prince Ra-Man possessed the memories of Merlin, he was able to use the "cat-charm" trinket and exchange bodies with the cat as well.
In fact, for a time, Prince Ra-Man was mystically stuck in the body of Memkata, but with the help of Elsa, and a "Magic Eye" ornament, the two were able to return to their rightful bodies.
Currently, Memakata now lives at Windward Home with Elsa.

However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
