I love Disney and I really love cats, so what’s better than Disney cats? In this post I’m going to list out some of the most memorable Disney cats and tell you a little about them, including what movie they’re from.
In this list I only included Disney cats from animated films, so I didn’t include some other Disney cats, like Thackery Binx from Hocus Pocus.
The Cheshire Cat
The Cheshire Cat is from the animated film Alice in Wonderland that came out in 1951. I love how this cat is pink and purple striped. Alice meets the Cheshire Cat when she falls down the Rabbit Hole. He has a huge smile that is a little eerie.
Dinah is Alice’s kitten in Alice In Wonderland. She is only in the movie before Alice falls down the rabbit hole and again at the end. She’s a really cute and sweet kitten.

Figaro is a favorite in our house! Figaro is Geppetto’s pet in the movie Pinocchio from 1940. He is also Minnie Mouse’s cat in some different animated shorts. My daughter is obsessed with Minnie Mouse, so of course she also loves Figaro!
Walt Disney loved Figaro so much in Pinocchio, so he made him Minnie’s kitten because he wanted to see more Figaro.
Giddeon is also in the movie Pinocchio. He’s a bad character in it and is linked up with Honest John, the fox. He’s not super memorable and doesn’t talk.
Lucifer is from the movie Cinderella that came out in 1950. Lucifer belongs to Lady Tremaine, Cinderella’s evil step mother. Lucifer is a big cat who is mean and mischievous. He is not on Cinderella’s side.
There are so many cats in the movie Aristocats! The animated film came out in 1970. The kittens are named Berlioz, Marie, and Toulouse. Their mama is Duchess and Thomas O’Malley is a feral cat who falls in love with Duchess.
He becomes kind of like a father to the kittens. Other cats in this movie are Scat Cat, Shun Gon, Hit Cat, Peppo, and Billy Boss.
Oliver is the orange kitty in Oliver And Company that came out in 1988. He is an orphan with an adventurous life, but ends up getting adopted by a rich girl.
101 Dalmatians came out in 1961 and it surprisingly has a cat in it! The cat is names Sergeant Tibbs. He’s friends with Perdita and Pongo and helps them find their missing puppies.
Si and Am
Si and Am are twin Siamese cats from the movie Lady And The Tramp. It came out in 1955. They are always together and are mean cats. I can’t think about them and get their song “We Are Siamese If You Please” stuck in my head!
Yzma is the evil lady in The Emperor’s New Groove, which came out in 2000. She’s not a cat until the end of the movie, and she’s the one who turns herself into a cat.
Tigger is one of my all-time favorite Disney characters! He’s super fun, lovable, and full of energy. He may not be the first Disney cat you think of, but he’s a tiger, which still qualifies him as a cat so he’s being included on this Disney animals list. He’s from Winnie The Pooh.
Raja is also a tiger. He’s Jasmine’s pet tiger in the movie Aladdin from 1992. He guards and protects her.
Mochi is a cat in Big Hero 6 from 2014. His owner is Aunt Cass. He’s a Japanese Bobtail cat who is really round and fluffy. Isn’t Mochi such a cute name for a cat? I love it!
Even though Bolt is about a dog, there is a cat in the movie named Mittens. The movie came out in 2008. She’s a scruffy black and white cat who meets up with Bolt, the dog.
Bagheera is a black panther in The Jungle book that came out in 1967. He protects Mowgli, aka Man-Cub, and is his friend.
Shere Kahn is a tiger in the movie The Jungle Book. He’s the bad guy.
