Movies which feature cats, but do not actually have cats in the movie

Right now I’m thinking of the Garfield movies, Shrek 2 and 3, the Aristocats, Lady and the Tramp…I’m kind of conflicted on including movies that feature lions and tigers and such, because then we have to include The Wizard of Oz, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe and The Lion King and so forth. Tough call.

Feature cats = don’t have cats - I’m confused.

The musical Cats. No real cats


Before The Aristocats, there was Gay Purr-ee.

Afterward, there was Fritz the Cat!

The Cat in the Hat

Josie and the Pussycats

The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing

Was there a nonreal cat in Toy Story? I can’t remember.

Cats Don’t Dance?

I’m really tempted to open this up to include nonreal big cats, but that would just open up the floodgates like nobody’s business.

Shinbone Alley, based on the old “Archy and Mehitabel” stories by Don Marquis and George Herriman.

And Goldfinger had Pussy Galore :stuck_out_tongue:

If we can include TV shows, Brit Dopers will remember Bagpuss.

Yeah, but those are not actual nonreal cats. I mean, do I include anything that could be interpreted as feline?

I can’t remember. Did Elizabeth Taylor and Paul newman have cats in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”?

I don’t remember either. What about in “Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!”?

Ah, it’s a joke thread. You got me. I’ll try not to respond to your posts in the future.

ETA: Yeah, I know. You’ll find a way to carry on somehow.

It originated as a joke in the Pit, but it got me thinking, because I was trying to come up with something that seemed totally invalid, but then I realized that there are actually multiple movies that feature nonreal cats. That’s why this was started, and not, for example, a thread about movies that don’t feature cats but have real cats in them. I mean, I could just ask for movies that feature cats, real or nonreal, but that’s way too general. This is a bit more challenging.

Also, I think it’s a bit harsh to judge me based on one somewhat whimsical thread. I have been here almost as long as you.

I don’t see how this is anything other than a “Name animated movies in which one or more characters is an animated cat” Thread.

  1. Do you have an objection to a thread that asks for a listing of nonreal cats in movies?

  2. I’d be sorry that I didn’t title the thread “Name animated movies in which one or more characters is an animated cat,” except I already named the Garfield movies, which are live action mixed with a CG cat, and it would be redundant anyway to ask for “animated movies” with “an animated cat.”

  3. Do you have an example of a movie that features a cat which is animated or in some other way nonreal to add, or are you just threadshitting?

You’re probably right. I’m feeling cranky and I should be asleep. As a peace offering I present this segment from Allegro Non Troppo.
