From Garfield to Grumpy Cat, Furball to Ms. Meow, cats everywhere seem to be raging for the spotlight. But why? What is it about cats that makes them such a meow-worthy box office draw?
Could it be that cats were born to chase the limelight, being a wild species of competitive hunters? Could it be that cats understand how to work a camera better than any puppy? Or could it be that cats know the secret to wealth and fame – always land on their feet?
Whatever it is, cats continue to captivate moviegoers from small towns to big cities. Their furry faces, big eyes, and flexible bodies make them natural entertainers! Not to mention that cats know how to make the most of every situation with that mysterious, laid-back confidence.
So, go cats go! Because if it wasn’t for them, the world of entertainment might be a little meow-less.
Cat Movies Throughout History
Cats have had a place in entertainment for generations. Even puppeteer Peter Schumann wrote a play in which a cat was the star. Plus, cats have appeared in folk tales, novels, and short stories for centuries. But it was in the 20th century that cats truly strutted their stuff.
From the silent short film The House Cat, to the 1981 classic Cat People, and even the beloved movie sequels Meet the Parents and Legally Blonde 2, cats have been captivating moviegoers for decades. It’s no wonder cats have become fixed stars in film.
With so many purr-fectly casted cats on the silver screen, it’s easy to forget that some of Hollywood’s best-loved cats were improvising their roles. When you consider the purr-fessional acting of some cats, it’s clear that there’s no script in the world that could make them meow their lines any better.
Cat Actors Take the Stage
Cats don’t just limit their fame to the big screen, they can be seen on the stage too. Kitties have proven time and again that they have the opportunistic talent needed to shine on the stage and know exactly how to tilt the spotlight to focus it on themselves!
But, it’s not just professional cats that have purringly made their way to the stage. Cats have appeared in Shakespeare’s productions, and with their personable purrs and personalities, cats have made their meow print in the minds of Shakespeare’s audiences for generations.
So, when you next see a cat pawing and batting their way in a play, you’ll know why they are exactly where they are meant to be: they are pursuing the gold!
