True life, I’m obsessed with cats (in case you couldn’t tell). I love all animals – I have a dog I adore and Animal Planet is one of my favorite channels – but I think I like cats the most. I have a cat named Belle and she’s basically the love of my life. I talk about her like she’s my child and we sleep together, even though I’m technically allergic to her.
So obviously I jumped at the chance to write about life lessons I’ve learned from some of my favorite famous cats from movies and TV shows. These cats are all seriously wise and seriously cute. They make me wish talking cats really did exist. Check out these life lessons from old-school famous cats, in GIFs:
Salem from Sabrina The Teenage Witch: How to get over being sad.
Milo from Milo & Otis: Always go after what you want.
Sassy from Homeward Bound: You’re pretty much irresistible.
Marie from The Aristocats: Ladies always know how to win a fight.
The Cheshire Cat from Alice In Wonderland: We’re all a little weird sometimes.
Bagheera from The Jungle Book: Sometimes you have to follow your gut instinct.
Simba from The Lion King: The people who are supposed to be there for you sometimes leave.
Garfield from Garfield: Nothing is better than lasagna.
Tom from Tom and Jerry: Just because you’re bigger doesn’t mean you’ll win!
Sylvester from Looney Tunes: Coffee can do… weird things to you.
Thackery Binx from Hocus Pocus: People (or cats) aren’t always who they seem.
The Pink Panther from The Pink Panther: Dancing makes you look super classy.
