Hello everyone, happy to show the presence of domestic cats either in the various ANIMES from Japan or various western CARTOONS or other sources in which cats delight us with their appearance.copyright protection3PENANAHKW6djFyef

My intention is to break down a classification that separates the different domestic cats that are presented in the audiovisual media in general.copyright protection3PENANAroZZzNgmaM

I must remind you that I don't show all the sources, only the main ones where cats are seen.copyright protection3PENANAv5uaprIG9R

NORMALS (JAPÓN Y OCCIDENTE)copyright protection3PENANAS9UmkkO30X

Both Animes and Cartoons show different breeds of domestic cats,copyright protection3PENANAVQNxDKnImL

They may have brief but remarkable appearances such as the "Kite" cats, or be the protagonists of their own series such as Chi from "Chi's Sweet Home" or the "Nyan Koi" cats.copyright protection3PENANA2dBK4q1IvF

These have no powers or other characteristics that make them peculiar unlike the later classifications.copyright protection3PENANAxnPsK9MydN

MAGIC (ANIME)copyright protection3PENANAsZJhrure3E

They are cats that appear to be ordinary domestic cats but that possess powers of a magical nature, or are related to a magical character.copyright protection3PENANA1zNFUsWZvV

The following classification is subdivided:copyright protection3PENANAqkX5KJPBxh

First, such cats have magical powers but do not speak. This case is found in "Rayearth" the OVAs.copyright protection3PENANAX0gGiIbJWe

Second, such cats may or may not have magical powers and have the ability to speak. This case is presented with the film "Kiki's delivery service" by Gibli.copyright protection3PENANAoXObCIEzIa

MÁGICOS (OCCIDENT)copyright protection3PENANAVadKmQt0pb

Two sub-classifications are also presented here:copyright protection3PENANAbUjHmxXyAP

First, domestic cats that were actually originally human beings and were then cursed to assume this cat form for hundreds of years. We find this in the film "Abracadabra" and in the series "Sabrina the Teenage Witch".copyright protection3PENANAhUD1v92PQO

Second, cats of pure magical nature, this is seen with the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland.copyright protection3PENANA5MYixk90lz

.copyright protection3PENANAbxtveP3boD

BIPEDS (ANIME)copyright protection3PENANAyZswhZRrZc

The works of both Anime, Manga and video games present a variety of cats that walk on two legs like human beings, among these cases we have:copyright protection3PENANA0bKtGYjJaH

First, the so-called Bipeds, in which domestic cats walk on two legs. This cat is in the "Magical cat adventure" arcade game.copyright protection3PENANAnbnVQ40FOU

Second, the Dressed Bipeds, in which domestic cats are found that not only walk on two legs, but are also fully clothed. We find this case in the anime "Samurai pizza cats".                                copyright protection3PENANAkmTMTbLKCL

Note: it was the females of "Samurai pizza cats" who motivated me to make this site, since many people confuse them with "Catgirls", sorry friends, these cats are not Catgirls, they are just bipedal cats wearing clothes.copyright protection3PENANAXCWH6CGqmQ

.copyright protection3PENANAASLtEEEqph

BIPEDS (OCCIDENT)copyright protection3PENANAcnU850LLr7

Although in the West it is not the cat but the dog that has a special role in several real action films (football dogs, detectives, karate players, basketball players, and a loooooong etc.), cats also had a relative role (originated and focused mainly on comic strips in newspapers).copyright protection3PENANACzQE4wwFb4

Only now are they beginning to play a more prominent role in recent real action films.                                           copyright protection3PENANA4LWQfBvU1U

The following sub-classifications are presented:                                              copyright protection3PENANAbdi5mn678y

Bipeds: cats that walk on two legs. This is seen with "Felix the Cat" and "Garfield".                                                                                                   copyright protection3PENANAfL75pcBWRN

Bipedals dressed - domestic cats that are dressed in some way, not totally like the Animes, they only wear a cap, or tie, jacket or something simple (it's funny, but I didn't see any examples of them wearing pants). Examples are "Top Cat and His Gang" and "Catillac cats" with the beautiful cat Cleo who wears gaiters.                                                            copyright protection3PENANA0WzWMOxhIz

Note: The only Western case, where the cats are fully dressed, is with "Swat Cats", but this series is hybrid, that is, it is created by Westerners but with an Eastern animation style.copyright protection3PENANAcUNu09R7h0

ANDROIDS (ANIME)copyright protection3PENANAc220x3aoar

They are cats that are the fruit of human science, so their whole bodies have mechanical parts.copyright protection3PENANApPXbCzmBNt

These cats are not robots as they are somehow alive.copyright protection3PENANArPCeqHNPkE

These cats can ingest organic food, as they decompose it inside to convert it into energy, it is important to emphasize that they have taste buds because they enjoy the taste of food.copyright protection3PENANAXwH0xe3HDe

The best example is found with "Doraemon" and more recently with the "Planet Survival" series.copyright protection3PENANA8246dGGzhu

.copyright protection3PENANA3JjFXJmLzH

.copyright protection3PENANApxd7xLlBsY

BIODROIDS (ANIME)copyright protection3PENANAPB0UHeAoNS

Although these cats are the fruits of human science, they were not androids from the beginning, but they were normal cats that due to an accident, were operated on and now have biological parts inside a cybernetic body.copyright protection3PENANASRBcxzVUlv

We found this with Kuro Chan from "Cybercat Kuro Chan".copyright protection3PENANABL2PSAAdb3

.copyright protection3PENANAb1EcVmqwKe

.copyright protection3PENANAoD60PDzLxV


In both Animes and Western cartoons, you see cats coming from another planet, they may or may not speak, and they may be able to fight fiercely or be completely defenseless.copyright protection3PENANABY6ga2CBzm

In the anime we have this creature in the hentai ovas of "Venus 5", and in the West we have this cat with the series "Kid vs kat".copyright protection3PENANAQXZWYPzyA7

.copyright protection3PENANAtQg99eI2Mu

.copyright protection3PENANA7osdECgheQ

CATS-RABBITS (ANIME and OCCIDENT)copyright protection3PENANAD4ND0MsAk3

In Anime these creatures seem to have the fused characteristics of a domestic cat with a rabbit.copyright protection3PENANAHNTXX2bF4Y

The best example is in the series "Tenchi Muyo".copyright protection3PENANA9bnBp1eGit

In the West, these cats, rather than belonging to the cartoons, come from urban or rural myths based on real cats with genetic malformations.copyright protection3PENANAwWxkAy638q

The following classifications are presented in the West: cats-rabbit, cats-raccoon, cats-squirrel, cats-skunk, cats-dog.copyright protection3PENANA6Pe0Nc2ZR6

.copyright protection3PENANAX1ilDHnRoG

.copyright protection3PENANAkUDSedqlhy

BIZARRES (ANIME)copyright protection3PENANALoo0obcqa4

In the worlds of Anime, some cats appear whose shape differs from what we normally know.copyright protection3PENANAx85QuIxRAW

This is seen with several cats in the "Pokemon" series.copyright protection3PENANAxVQaN5oeqF

FOLKLORE (JAPAN)copyright protection3PENANALzOCJCH7Q7

In terms of cats, the folkloric corpus of Japan is remarkable with creatures such as the Bakeneko, Nekomata, Nekomusume, Kasha, Sunekosuri, Maneki Neko and Kami Neko.copyright protection3PENANANDkROxkcWd

They are generally taken as creatures who attract good luck and protection, especially with the Maneki Neko and the Kami Neko.copyright protection3PENANAKqFq0WBiMD

.copyright protection3PENANAbxcZaWBR3s

.copyright protection3PENANAZR5jIUQ26N

FOLKLORE (OCCIDENT)copyright protection3PENANAgQdVheSTwE

In the West cats are related to witches, more specifically these cats are called Familiar.copyright protection3PENANAwHcJGmFieJ

It's sad, but these cats are now associated with evil, however, since ancient times in occident the cats (especially blacks) were associated with good fortune.copyright protection3PENANAKdAQwjKnmR

The Catholic Church, once it saw the other rival religions eliminated, tried to eliminate all vestiges of paganism and spread the rumor that cats were evil creatures.copyright protection3PENANAaDIozZCrS8

Today, this negative modern image is being lost thanks to the better education of the people and we find this type of cat in graphic novels such as "Tarot witch of the back rose", in which beautiful familiar cats with wings are presented.copyright protection3PENANA6pQj9wFPPT

.copyright protection3PENANAyz79pDta0Q

.copyright protection3PENANA2btKz2JbuC


In this case we see that mad scientists or criminal geniuses manipulate domestic cats and change their appearance with genetic manipulation.copyright protection3PENANAtz6AJwddHe

There are two cases:copyright protection3PENANA3JpxtZzda4

First, the domestic cat is fused with another animal creature. You can see this with the series "Island of mutants".copyright protection3PENANAQvESFy4n75

Second, the cat is fused with a plant. This is seen with "Batman" or "Plants vs. Zombies."copyright protection3PENANATAF0apwoDe

.copyright protection3PENANADGX3dr2NFd

.copyright protection3PENANARvIwoo4tLc

ZOMBIES (OCCIDENT)copyright protection3PENANAyFNeFYDcng

In the West, zombie cats are found with the film "Pet Cemetery", these cats, unlike human zombies, have normal reflexes as well as a body heat that is also normal, they simply present internal decomposition since the outer coat and the eyes do not present any sign of entropy.copyright protection3PENANAr0Xo3bQ6Zv

Another notable difference with their human counterparts is that the elimination of these creatures is the same as the one used to kill a vampire (stakes in the heart and garlic in the mouth), instead of the classic bullet in the brain reserved for human zombies, this is told with the cartoons of "Kid vs. Kat".copyright protection3PENANAkR03nprsSd

.copyright protection3PENANAFqTsFyrjLO

.copyright protection3PENANAAcPxBTJrZI

GHOSTS (JAPAN and OCCIDENT)copyright protection3PENANAWkzXnXmPpe

This case is given with the real action film "Mrs Ashboro's cat" (aka. Ghost Cat), in which the ghost of a house cat helps a family to recover a lost treasure.copyright protection3PENANA25FVykuZDg

Sadly, films of ghost cats in the West can be counted with the fingers of one hand.copyright protection3PENANAOdtDL4xuwx

In Japan, ghost cats are much more common than in the West, for example, the anime "Bleach" or the manga "Devil's Cat temptation".copyright protection3PENANAdsRNqeKM3a

In fact, the amount of this classification in Japan is so numerous that they have their own categories, which are:copyright protection3PENANA16fG1O0wNE

Neko Sodo Mono - which are supernatural literary stories of these cats; andcopyright protection3PENANAMCSggDkN8Q

Bakeneko Mono - which are the previous stories but taken to the cinema or television.copyright protection3PENANAkmjb9JqUwt

.copyright protection3PENANA4xzkdB8e8W

.copyright protection3PENANASVyLbOowCx

VAMPIRES (JAPAN)copyright protection3PENANAnWTG82qyXX

In both Anime and Manga, there are no cats that are vampires, however we see that Japanese folklore has cats that border on this classification.copyright protection3PENANA12vBnIdvXm

Both the Nekomata and the Kasha, are cats that can reanimate human corpses and drink blood as does the Bakeneko, however, both in the Neko Sodo Mono, as in the Bakeneko Mono, these cats after drinking blood of someone killed, then are possessed by the spirit of that person seeking revenge and assume a human appearance. So whether these cats are vampires or not depends on your judgment.copyright protection3PENANAsQh1BtQ0Zs

The only thing I could find in this aspect is the "Magical Cat Adventure" arcade game by the company Wintechno, in which a cat-vampire is presented, but this one has bipedal characteristics and is fully dressed.copyright protection3PENANAxmoq3xtu5q

Note: A vampire cat has just appeared, it's with the Anime series of "Nyanpire".copyright protection3PENANAr7tWJQFXmD

.copyright protection3PENANAjOtBP54G54

.copyright protection3PENANA8Cqx3u4wZ9

VAMPIRES (OCCIDENT)copyright protection3PENANAXrhqo0g3XC

As in Japan, this is a nebulous case, since first of all in the West there are no cats that are vampires, no matter what source we are looking for.copyright protection3PENANAHgraRhgWXl

There is something similar in European folklore where vampires can turn into cats, as well as in the game books of Warhammer-Vampire Counts, there is a clan of vamps who have the same ability.copyright protection3PENANA05XrD0WIxV

Both cases do not represent vampire cats, as they are human vampires that are transformed into cats for a certain period of time.                                   copyright protection3PENANASvm9VK9cO7

The closest I could find in the West are some beautiful stone gargoyles that are for sale, these gargoyles perfectly represent cats-vampire.copyright protection3PENANAPvngGfxWcv

.copyright protection3PENANAhdBfEegBWO

.copyright protection3PENANAxOjTYfE7rt

DRAGONS (JAPAN and OCCIDENT)copyright protection3PENANAehYCxFS5B4

In Japan, these creatures occur in various Anime, Manga and video game sources.copyright protection3PENANABThc9Wqqyn

The best example is given in the RPG game "Lunar: the silver star", in which very young cats with dragon-like characteristics and wings become powerful dragons as they grow up.                                                                                           copyright protection3PENANAe5cyYaNDif

In the West, such creatures do not exist.copyright protection3PENANA6xw5a4K2am

The closest thing to this is in the RPG game book "Draconomicon", in which the various kinds of dragons that are presented there, have a bony physiognomy and feline musculature.copyright protection3PENANA7LgoXploQT

.copyright protection3PENANAM5ZYDY9rBs

.copyright protection3PENANAGHZdN9hxcr

ANGELS—WINGEDS (JAPAN)copyright protection3PENANATjc9Iaz4yq

In both Anime and Manga, there are cats that are angels.copyright protection3PENANAXkvXj8VtAw

The best example is found in "Happy World", where cats temporarily take on human form in order to interact with the people they wish to protect.                copyright protection3PENANAVgeVt15Lzh

As for winged cats, we have for example the Manga and Anime from "Fairy Tail", in which you can see a winged cat accompanying the protagonist.copyright protection3PENANAcsApCjzcn8

.copyright protection3PENANACls8iMhdfR

.copyright protection3PENANAKa7Y6B0bnz


In the West there are no works either in the cartoons or in the comic strips in which cat-angels are presented, however, nowadays there are diverse merchandise (stuffed animals, jewellery) that presents these creatures. copyright protection3PENANAHv5aDnWUBb

The closest I could get was in the online comic book "Catena".                                             copyright protection3PENANALlmTksvkDS

As for winged cats, there is more luck as we have the comic book "Tarot witch of the Black Rose".copyright protection3PENANAU6tWasBx2u

.copyright protection3PENANAhKZnUCKQxm

.copyright protection3PENANA2iHoc1RImv

OTHERS (JAPAN and OCCIDENT)copyright protection3PENANAAgB3cMwOjz

Curious cases can be seen, for example in the game "Castelvania aria of sorrow", where the protagonist can throw magical projectiles in the shape of running domestic cats.copyright protection3PENANAiBjiYdUJ4r

Other cats that defy any classification are the famous "cat-buses" from the film "My friend Totoro" and their specials that followed.copyright protection3PENANA57KMwXOnFa

Mii and Nii a pair of kittens who are also difficult to classify, who are the protagonists of the "Neko Neko Magicians" Manga.copyright protection3PENANASgqukDgRrA
