** She tends to play it straight more often than not, though, as Kokonoe can be a major bitch at times, and her treatment of Tager often borders on abuse. Overall, however, she's the only one who plays it straight. The other Kaka kittens, Taokaka included, are all benevolent, and Kokonoe didn't get her mean genes from her full-cat father Jubei.

* Arthur from ''Anime/CodeGeass'' creates a running joke by always making trouble for Suzaku, usually by biting him and nobody else. Interestingly, though, Arthur actually seems to like Suzaku; the official website for the second season says that he bites out of love, Arthur once attacked an enemy combatant whose gun was pointed at Suzaku, and in the final episode, we get a brief scene of [[spoiler:Arthur patiently watching over Suzaku's grave]]. Aww. Arthur also makes trouble for Lelouch by unwittingly making off with his Zero mask.

* Rumor has it that WaltDisney hated cats (and praised mice and dogs, the two mortal enemies of cats, though another rumor states that he was actually afraid of real mice, so make of that what you will). Among the ways cats are portrayed in Creator/{{Disney}} animation:
** In ClassicDisneyShorts, the regular antagonist of Mickey Mouse (and Co.) is Peg-leg Pete, a rather large, imposing bully-of-a-cat. The anthropomorphic dog, Goofy, is amiable, simple-minded, and good-natured, and Pluto is just...[[FurryConfusion a dog]].

** In the ''AliceComedies'' Disney made before creating Mickey, Pete is a non-descript bearlike creature. Alice is also accompanied by a non-villainous cat named Julius.
*** In ''HouseOfMouse'', there is some proof that Pete is a cat, as evidenced by Mickey telling Pluto that Pete's the only cat he's allowed to chase.
*** Also, Pete's a villain (albeit an IneffectualSympatheticVillain) in the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' games, though you do meet his ''SteamboatWillie'' version, who's more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. This particular version of Pete is also seen in ''MickeyMouseClubhouse''.

** One of the two {{big bad}}s in ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' is feline crime boss Fat Cat. (Originally, he was a pet belonging to Aldrin Klordane, the villain in the FiveEpisodePilot.) One of his henchmen, Mepps, is also a cat. In the pilot episode, Fat Cat and his main henchmen deal with the Siamese Twins, a pair of felines that scare even him. In one episode, Fat Cat's French cousin is the villain. (Finding out that the guy is Fat Cat's Cousin is more than enough to make Monterey Jack not like him.) Also, when Gadget becomes a human's good luck charm (or so he thinks), his cat becomes jealous enough to kill, her being his ''previous'' charm.(Of course, in a show where the heroes consist of two chipmunks and two mice, it's natural that some villainous cats are going to show up.) This was averted in an episode when the Rescue Rangers return a kitten to his owner.

** Pete is relatively {{downplayed}} in ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'', ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'', and ''An Extremely Goofy Movie'', where he is a {{Jerkass}} but not a straight-up villain. His son, PJ, is an ''{{inversion}}'', being [[NiceGuy extremely kind]] and victimized [[ZigZaggingTrope by Pete himself]] the majority of the time, though he and Pete are both portrayed as more of {{Dogface}}s than cats. Also inverted with the pets: Goofy's cat, Waffles, is nicer than Pete's dog, Chainsaw.
** {{Averted}} in ''MickeyMouseClubhouse'' where he's just an annoying foil.
** Also, the ''SteamboatWillie'' version of him in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* Ortensia from the ''OswaldTheLuckyRabbit'' cartoons (she was called Sadie back then) and ''EpicMickey''.
