An AmeriCAT in Paris #CaturdayMovies

WAFFLES:  Bone Jour, ladies. I'm practicing my French stuff today. 

KATIE:  Waffles, you're touching me. No touching, remember?

WAFFLES:  But Boss, I'm practicing my French stuff. You know, romantic stuff. For the ladies. 

KATIE:  Waffles, I never said you could practice on me. Besides, you do know you're not French, right? 

WAFFLES:  But what about my hat? 

KATIE:  A hat doesn't make you French, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  What about the wine? And the Cheetos?

KATIE:  You mean cheese?

WAFFLES: See? Cheese is romantic, right? 

KATIE:  Waffles, you need to go practice this romantic stuff on someone else. Now say goodbye and leave. 

WAFFLES:  We'll always have Paris, Boss.

KATIE:  Wrong movie, Waffles.

PARIS the Cat: Of all the cat joints in the world, I have to walk into THIS one.  What? Still the wrong movie???

Welcome to Caturday at the Movies with the Shelter Cats!
If you're a regular visitor here on Saturdays, you're probably familiar with our #TVTripCaturday blog series featuring classic TV spoofs and adoptable cats from our friends at PAWS Pet Animal Welfare Society in Norwalk, CT.

Well we're stepping out and going to the movies!

Through the magic of Photoshop, an adoptable cat from PAWS will join Waffles and Katie for some cinema-fun as we "catify" our favorite movies.

We'll also introduce you to the 'Cameo Cats' and share a little bit about them. Maybe, just maybe... our crazy antics will help our shelter friends find forever homes.

Special thanks to Maggie Swanson, the talented photographer behind our cameo cats and a devoted volunteer at PAWS. Maggie is the author of the blog, Sundays at the Shelter, where she features adoptable cats from PAWS each and every week. Her beautiful photos have helped countless cats find loving homes.

Today's Cameo Cat
Paris is such a beautiful girl! She's two years old and very playful and athletic. Paris has been spayed, current on all her vaccinations, micro-chipped and negative for FIV and FeLV. She's ready and waiting for you at PAWS. Hearts are going to melt!

Pssst! Trivia Question
Extra credit if you can name the movie that Waffles and Paris are mixed up over. We're not sure what kind of credit you'll get. But it will be extra! ; )


  1. Paris has such beautiful green eyes. Waffles tu es un chat extraordinaire.

  2. OMC, what a pretty girl Paris is! My human is such a vintage film fanatic that she almost never sees any films made in the last 30 or so years. So of course she knows that Waffles got mixed up between Humphrey Bogart (Casablanca) and Gene Kelly (An American in Paris, natch). And BTW, when she saw the title to the blog post, she thought she might see Waffles dancing - he DOES know that's how Gene Kelly got all the ladies - or at least Leslie Caron - right? ;-)

  3. Why Catsablanca of course! Play it again Waffles!

  4. MOL! Waffles, Katie would gladly pay for you to go to France .... Paris has stunning green eyes!

  5. This is so funny! I was going to comment on the post that showed Katie and Waffles on stools at the bar - "Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine." We all had Casablanca on the mind...
    Thank you for showing Paris. I sure hope PAWS won't have Paris for long!

  6. Must be Kittyblanca or is it Catsablanca?

  7. Bon Jour - he he you guys crack us up. Waffles, you make a pretty cute Frenchman! Katie - you must admit, he makes a cute french man.

  8. Bone Jour! mol We hope someone has Paris, soon. The little beauty xxxx

  9. We can't wait for the next installment of Catsablanca...Louis this is the beginning of a remarkable friendship! MOL

  10. Paris, I adore your eyeliner! Lucky you, you never have to try to get that lovely cat's eye look. You already have them!

    Waffles, you're doing well with the "charm the ladies" thing (whatever the Boss might say; she needs to maintain that professional mistress/minion relationship distance, after all, so it can't be too friendly and affectionate between you two), so you might want to work more on your language skills. Correct pronunciation, for example. Feel free to come practice the language of love with me anytime, handsome! ;D

  11. Very cute indeed. Dat Paris is soooo gawjus. Weez purrayin' a furever home comes soon.

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Lexi
