** Most of the animal characters also see Billy as this, as his claims of being a human trapped in the body of a cat aren´t usually taken seriously.
* FantasticRacism: Between cats and dogs. This is more notable in the animated series. Cats and dogs absolutely despise each other and don´t even seem to consider getting along. Also, Mr. Hubert in the series seems to be unable to consider pigeons as anything other than food, and takes a bit of time to accept the pigeon Jumbo as an ally.
** In the animated series, there was also a group of purebred dogs who had sworn to kill not only every cat they come across, but also any dog that isn´t a purebred like themselves. Meaning that, yes, these dogs extend their racism to even their own kind.

* FauxAffablyEvil: Sanctifer can be polite, helpful and friendly, but deep down, he is a very nasty and sociopathic individual, who will get quite agressive if things don´t go his way.
* KnightOfCerebus: Sanctifer is quite a frightening and dangerous villain. The comics in which he appears are noticeably darker than the others.
* LoudOfWar: Hell in the pilot comic (even before "in the skin of a cat"). Eternal dance music that's really eternal. A party that never stops! Sounds great, huh? Not really according to Billy...

* NiceMice: Completely Averted in the second episode, where a group of mice bully Billy. They are no better than the rat villains who appear later in the series.

* CatsAreSuperior: Mr.Hubert firmly believes in this, especially in the comics. In the eight album, he even tells Billy that no other creature (not even humans) is as well adapted to this world as cats, and claims that, sometimes, he wonders if the entire universe was created just for cats.

* YouDirtyRat: In the comics, the servants of Sanctifer are a nasty and vicious colony of rats. In the animated series we have the giant rat King and his group, who still serve as villains.



* YouDirtyRat: Sanctifer´s group of servants happen to be some quite nasty rats.

* BadBoss: Sanctifer towards the rats that serve and worship him. He is quite cruel towards them and doesn´t think twice about killing them should they fail him.

** Interestingly, dogs get a much worse portrayal than cats. As said above, other than the villain Sanctifer, the worst a cat can be is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. Dogs, however, are not only shown as being dumb brutes, but also as very vicious, highly racist against cats and more than willing to eat them. There are even times where the only reason they chase and try to kill the cat characters is, indeed, only because they are cats. While there are heroic dogs in both the comics and the series, this is one rare occasion where a dog is much more likely to be the antagonist rather than a cat.
