List Criteria: Only movies that have cats as main characters

A list of the best cat movies ever. These are movies about cats, or featuring a cat as one of the main characters. Not only that, these are the *best* cat movies. If you've think we've missed one please feel free to add it in yourself to this list of the best cat movies. As one of our two favorite pets, cats are a safe bet when it comes to making movies and this is a list of some of those great cat films.

Since cats are more difficult to train, there also tends to be fewer cat movies compared to dog movies. Various cat breeds can be found in these films. If you're into felines then we bet you'll find a movie on this list of cat films you'll love. Hopefully we'll be able to add some more cat films to the list in the future!

What are the best cat movies? This cat movies list strives to answer that question.
