List RulesVote up the cartoons that primarily feature cats.

The best cartoons have been filled with animals rather than humans since the beginning of animation. From Garfield to The Pink Panther, there's no shortage of colorful and unique cats that have been providing us with entertainment for decades. Whether they're funny or fierce felines, crude or cute kitties, the favorite cat cartoons of our childhood and adulthood will always hold a special place in our hearts.

The animated cat series on this list, all of which feature a kitty of one kind or another as the star, were with us during our Saturday mornings in front of the TV and our after-school homework procrastination sessions. So let's rank the top cat cartoons that kept us all company from best to worst.
