List Rules Vote for your favorite cartoon cats and comic book cats. Large cats allowed.

Cats are awesome, and doubly so for cartoon cats! Cats are often used in cartoons and animated films as comic relief and antagonists, but there are some superhero cats as well. Many cartoon cats are paired with famous mouse characters so that both sides may battle it out. But regardless of who wins in that fight, who are the greatest cartoon cat characters of all time?

Cats have been popular subjects in cartoons for decades and have often been used as antagonists to be mocked. It seems like Tom, Meowth, and Sylvester just can’t ever catch a break. Despite their repeated failures however, audiences still love them. After all, they just never give up no matter how many times things go badly for them. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have lazy fat cartoon cats like Garfield, who practically embody slothfulness.

Other famous cartoon cats include Snowball II, Puss in Boots, and Duchess from The Aristocats. If you love cat characters, then be sure to vote for your favorite cats from cartoons and comics. Don’t see it listed? Add it to the listing so that others may vote for it. For the purpose of this list, bigger cats such as lions, tigers, and leopards also apply. Basically any cartoon felines.
