Fictional Cats That Were Played by Real Cats [Random Pop Culture Top Twelve]

I have always liked cats, ever since I was a kid. I now own two dogs, which is a product of (who I am married to) x (where I live), but they are the only two dogs I have ever owned, while my family have had cats since I was a little kid. And the cat I own now is one of the coolest animals ever.
