    I’m convinced that somewhere in the Warner Brothers vaults are unreleased Looney Tunes cartoons, produced for the personal enjoyment of the artists, in which Sylvester finally gets and eats Tweety, Wile E. Coyote catches the Road Runner, and Elmer Fudd successfully bags a wabbit.Report

    The problem is that cats have different priorities than other animals. Dogs want unity and fraternity among the pack… but cats appreciate power and hierarchy. Marlon Brando’s cat in The Godfather as well as (as you mentioned) Donald Pleasance’s cat in the James Bond movies both appreciated power.

    This makes most “progressive” literature make the cat to be a symbol of the oppressor (most stories that have mice protagonists, for example, portray the cat as “evil”) but civilization exists because granaries exist and granaries exist because cats exist.

    It’s not oppression that cats represent but authority.Report
