Monday Musings With Sassy: Hollywood Cats

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?

You've definitely got a good point there. Perhaps... after we cats complete our goal of world dominations... things will change. What do you think?

These are great! And just about any movie would be better with a cat in one of the leading roles, so there are just too many to name.

These are FUN!
To answer your question...I think that EVERY movie would be better with a cat.

Cape Cat
Shawshank Catdemption
Saturday Night Cat Fever
I Know What Your Cat Did Last Summer...

Looks like the premiere is back on track...there's an update on my blog today! ...The Housecats were tied up with lots of blogging obligations, etc...
But you're looking as beautiful as ever!

MOL at Brian's comment!
Cat's would improve all films.

The Island Cats said...

We agree! Every movie would be better with a cat or two or three in it!!

I think Lassie woulda been way better with a cat! That way, Timmy woulda died in that damn well in the FIRST movie and we could have avoided YEARS of boring sequels and that awful TV show.

Say, I think this would make a terrific weekly feature: "Better With Cats"!!!

Hmm, Me thinks cats is not interested enough to take pawt in Movies, but me thinks a few would be better with cats like Can yous imagine
King Kong as King Cat
Matrix as Catrix
Beethoven with a Maine Coon!
Turner and Hooch as Turner and Smooch
