A character is supposed to be imitating or acting like a cat, so they start batting at a moving object with their fingers curled inwards to imitate the rounded look of a cat paw. Bonus points if they start licking his faux paw. This move is often favored by {{Catgirl}}s.

* Used in Jim Gaffigan's stand-up routine. "Just cause I make a hot catwoman... meow..."
* According to behind-the-scenes commentary, this is how Will Ferrel auditioned for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''. He did a deadly serious impersonation of a cat playing with various objects and grooming himself.

* [[TheHero Shoutaro]] of ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' claims to be able to work out where a missing cat is the same way he finds missing people: by getting into the cat's mindset. He does so by performing a FauxPaw and meowing; not only does it work, but [[spoiler: the woman he was hired by had ulterior motives, and ''didn't actually have a cat in the first place'']].

* Matsuri and Miu, in episode 51 of ''Manga/IchigoMashimaro'', each don kitty ears (''not'' the kitty hat from episodes 8 & 43). Matsuri mimics does the Faux Paw maneuver (just batting, no licking), to Nobue's delight. Miu behaves more like a cat that's lashing out. Nobue doesn't think so highly of this.
