I love Carrie Vaughn's Kitty the Werewolf books, Kitty is one of my most favourite characters, as are werewolves in general. But when it came to writing my own books and deciding on what paranormal creatures would inhabit my world - and whilst I have fae that can take the shape of animals, such as kelpies and phoukas - I decided against werewolves for one very good reason.
My spellcrackers.com books are set in the UK and wolves have been extinct here for at least a couple of hundred years, thanks to a combination of humans hunting them and their natural habitats disappearing [again due to humans]. Doing
Wales: possibly in the 12th century
So sadly, the only way werewolves are likely to appear in my books are if they're tourists.

* Don't you just love a werewolf called Kitty. LOL!
** I know, I have vampires, and faeries, and goblins, and trolls, and none of them are real [no really they're not ... unless of course, you know different :-)] so why should I worry about not having werewolves, just because wolves are extinct here - well, no one ever said this writing business was logical, did they?! LOL!
*** not that this picture in any way impugns any American tourist that has ever visited, or will ever visit London.
David Naughton [The American Werewolf] in the flesh! What a hottie!
