If anyone asks, I love all animals, but there’s a special place in my heart for kitty cats. So, I give you my list of favorite fictional felines. I’m limiting it to my top seven. Oh, it was so difficult.
Luna, Artemis, Diana (Sailor Moon)
Okay, this one is an easy one. I HAVE to include Luna (and can I also add Artemis and Diana?).
I’m still trying to find a cat with a moon-shaped mark on its forehead. One day... ONE DAY! When that day comes, I shall be a sailor scout. Maybe...
Who doesn’t love the Cheshire Cat? Sure, he speaks in riddles and nonsense, but I’ve always kind of liked that. Besides, I like to keep people guessing, so I can relate to Mr. Cheshire.
Oliver (Oliver and Company)
OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS LOOK AT DAT FACE!
My heart melts for this little guy, ever since the start of the movie. It was just the cherry on top that Billy Joel sang most of the songs in the film. However, Oliver's cuteness and innocence stand on its own.
Yzma's cat form (Emperor's New Groove)
'Kay, don’t particularly like her in human form, but she makes for one adorable little fur ball.
Danny and Sawyer (Cats Don’t Dance)
Cats Don’t Dance is one of my favorites. It’s a gem in my eyes. I mean, with its larger than life vocals and stunning animation, who wouldn't like this movie? It just didn’t get very much attention. But seriously, boy, can Danny and Sawyer sing. Both make a remarkable team.
I confess, I’ve been watching Digimon (in the middle of all this Pokemon hype), and I had forgotten how much I actually adore Gatoman.
She not only is a strong female feline, but she can also transform into an angel.
Kuro (Blue Exorcist)
Blue Exorcist is an outstanding manga, so you should pick it up. The anime was actually pretty good too.
If you didn't know, Kuro is the kitty companion to the main character Rin, and is so beyond adorable and sweet and hilarious, it’s unbelievable he doesn’t have his own manga.
