Kitties, Sassy here. We are back from Hollywood. We went there for the premiere of House Cats 2, but the premiere was delayed. Or maybe The Spotted Airhead got the date wrong. With her, who knows?
So anyway on to my Monday’s Musing. While in Hollywood I noticed something. Very few movies star cats. Why is that – cats always improve a story! Here are just a few examples to prove this statement:
Gone with The Wind – After Rhett says “Frankly, Scarlett my dear, I don’t give a d*mn, and goes to walk out the door, a cat streaks across the doorway tripping him. He falls, gets amnesia, forgets he doesn’t love Scarlett anymore and they live happily ever after.
Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back – When Darth Vader said “Luke, I am your Father”, just think how different the show would have been if a cat had played this part. Then the line would have been “Luke, I am your Cat.” All Luke would have had to do would be slip Darth Vader a little Silvervine. An intergalactic fight and several bad sequels would have been avoided. Most important – there would have been no Jar-Jar.
Wizard of Oz – This show starred some wimpy little dog. If they had used a cat instead, it wouldn’t have not just given the wicked witch a puny bite on the leg, it would have scratched her eyes out. Then Dorothy would have been in the storm cellar when the storm hit, so not visit to Oz.
(P.S. In case you are wondering why so many of the pictures have The spotted Airhead in them instead of me, that is because she actually wants to be a star. Since being a movie star would involve having to be around people, I have no desire to be a star!)
Do you know of any other movies that would have been improved with a cat added?
