- The Cat in the Hat
- Hello Kitty
- The Cheshire Cat
- The Aristocats
- Puss in Boots
- Azrael (from The Smurfs)
- Tony the Tiger
- Mittens (from Bolt)
- The Pink Panther
- Tom from Tom and Jerry
- Mufasa (from The Lion King)
- Crookshanks (from Harry Potter)
- Hobbes (from Calvin and Hobbes)
- Figaro (from Pinocchio)
You may also want to include pictures of big cats such as a lion, tiger, cheetah, leopard, or mountain lion/cougar/panther. Include only the cats your guests are likely to recognize.
