Cats In Films

I BLAME James Bond.

And Stephen King.

Not to mention Edgar Allan Poe.

Plus various movies.

What for? Giving cats a bad name in films, that's what.

Bond villain, the sinister Dr Ernst Stavro Blofeld, seeks world domination. The evil genius sits at his desk spreading fear as the camera cuts to  a close-up of him stroking his white blue-eyed Turkish Angora cat.

As for Stephen King... Have you seen Pet Sematary? Here a family cat is run over and killed. He is buried in the town's pet "sematary" but returns as a terrifying ZOMBIE.

Edgar Allan Poe wrote The Black Cat, made into a movie of the same name in 1981. The eponymous cat's mind is controlled by his professor owner and starts killing people who have wronged him.

In Cats and Dogs a white Persian called  Mr. Tinkles plans to conquer the world by making all humans allergic to dogs. In a sequel, Cats And Dogs: The Revenge Of Kitty Galore (2010), a hairless cat, a nasty piece of work, pretends to be a puppy in her role as an undercover spy for the cats.

A cat called Azrael in The Smurfs is another feline villain. She accompanies a dastardly wizard in his attempts to destroy the Smurfs. (Sounds like a good idea to me, but what do I know?)

Alley cat Mittens in the film Bolt bullies the local pigeons out of their food and shows Bolt how to pretend to be cute to get attention from stupid humans.

Garfield is a selfish layabout, Si and Am in the Lady and the Tramp are trouble-makers, Lucifer in Cinderella is mean and Grumpy Cat in, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, is, well, just grumpy. Very, very grumpy.

I think I'll make my own film, Cats Are Lovely Fluffy Benevolent Angels with George Clooney and Meryl Streep.

  1. HA! That's funny…. but even though all these cats are villains, I have to say, they are pretty cute villains!!! And I think that your film Cats are Lovely Fluffy Benevolent Angels sounds like a hit! I'd see it. :)

    1. Aw, thanks for subscribing. Will be over to return the favour. Loved your blog!

  2. Poor cats have been maligned for centuries especially black cats which I love. You forgot about Dr. Evil and the hairless cat. There are good pussy cats like the Cat From Outer Space or That Darn Cat. I like to think they rule us but with harmless intent (mostly)

    1. I love black cats too. I know some countries think they're bad luck but they're considered good luck here in Britain.

  3. They're just misunderstood. That's true of most movie villains.

  4. Any movie with a cat improves the film even if the cat has an evil role.

    1. That is so true. I always love it when the cat appears - unless it's some kind of gory thriller when you fear what might happen to it.
