* AnimalTalk: At the very least, cats, horses, mice and geese all speak the same language; a couple of talking dogs also appear, but we never see them interact with the cats. They also all understand the human language, to Edgar's dismay. A joke right near the end implies that either Madame can speak the animal language, or she just believes they speak.
** The case of Edgar is ambiguous. The night he tries to steal back the stuff he lost to the dogs after dumping the cats, it looks like he is really good to guess what they are suspecting (or maybe he's afraid they're going to maul him again), like when he takes off his noisy shoes right in time to settle the vigilance of Napoleon. But the more blatant example is when he stops dead the fight in the same time that the cats as Roquefort demands silence. Maybe he was just startled by a loud squeaking sound, but still.
* ArtisticLicenseAnimalCare: Pouring half a bottle of sleeping pills into a bowl of milk and feeding it to cats is a fantastic way to get them killed. If nothing else, it will do a mouse in quickly. However, he might have been trying to kill them, and then just dump their bodies.

* {{Expy}}[=/=]PigeonHoledVoiceActor: O'Malley has a similar personality (and the same voice actor, Phil Harris) as Baloo from ''Disney/TheJungleBook''. Harris would play another, even more blatant, expy of Baloo as Little John in ''Disney/RobinHood''.

** Their opinion of O'Malley immediately changes when they find out that he and Duchess aren't married, and are clearly under the impression that he has impure intentions toward her. Which, to be fair, he sorta did before realizing she had kids in tow.
*** At this moment, they heap on him reproaches with sophisticated sentences connoted to fornication, impossible to grasp for children. Poor innocent Marie finds it genuinely romantic.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Madame, who never once suspects Edgar. Since, you know, [[SarcasmMode there's totally nothing suspicious]] about them disappearing the very night after she wrote her will and left everything to them instead of him.
** To be fair, she didn't know that Edgar knew about his inclusion in the will.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Some fans don't blame Edgar for trying to get rid of the cats (not killing them) - come on now! You have to wait until some cats die before inheriting a fortune?!? But maybe he should have waited a little more to see if Mme Bonfamille was going to live long enough to let cats overflowing the house before he acted out.

* KindheartedCatLover: Madam Adelaide Bonfamille. She is fine being single, but as Duchess says at one point, without her cats to love she really ''does'' feel alone.
** Madam is a very good example of this. O'Malley doesn't like the idea of living with a human, but Duchess explains to him that Madam is not like any other human - she really loves the cats like they are her own kin.
* LargeHam: Uncle Waldo, Georges, Lafayette, and Edgar.

* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Edgar "turned evil" after he learns all the inheritance will pass to the cats.
** This is actually a subversion of the trope, however: Edgar ''thinks'' he's a woobie, but if he'd listened to the whole will he would have learned that the inheritance will indeed pass on to the cats ''with him as their caretaker'', so since cats can't actually use money, that basically meant he gets all the money if he'd just make sure the cats could still lead the pampered lives they have always been used to.

** Mme Bonfamille wakes up in the middle of a stormy night dreaming that her cats have vanished. To reassure herself, she goes to check on Duchess and her kittens, only to find her pets [[OhCrap are missing from their bed]]. She runs around the house frantically calling for them, unaware that her own butler ministered the kidnapping.

** Incidentally, while it was standard practice for a long time, giving cats milk (or mice, for that matter) is not so good for their digestion - though if we assume it was goat milk, then it's not ''quite'' as bad.

* UnwantedAssistance: O'Malley's reaction to Abigail and Amelia, who are under the mistaken impression that he's trying to teach himself to swim and unwilling to hear it when he says he's really just trying to get to shore after saving Marie. It's played for laughs, but they actually come fairly close to killing him. Later on, it became an EmbarassingRescue by the geese.
