* TragicVillain: [[spoiler: While his actions ''as'' a villain are unambiguously horrid and unjustifiable, absolutely nothing that turned Claudandus ''into'' a villain is actually his fault. His existence was initially every bit as benign as any cat's could be; he was a stray who was taken in by people who just so happened to be performing horrible experiments on cats just like him, and had to endure more of them than many of the other cats involved solely from the misfortune of ''surviving'' everything the scientists put him through. Preterius's own descent into madness killed all hope of him ever being treated any better by his caregivers, and by the time he was free he could feel nothing but animosity towards people because of everything he'd been through, driving him to murder Preterius and start his entire scheme to ethnically cleanse his own species. Even in his last moments, he implies that he doesn't like what he became and looked back more fondly on the point of his life when he was still a good individual.]]

* AllDogsArePurebred: A rare case of this trope being used for cats. Most of the characters in the book are explicitly described as being of one particular breed or another (exceptions being Francis and Joker). Strangely, "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Shorthair European Shorthair]]" seems to be used as a synonym for "Domestic Shorthair/Longhair" (basically cats of mixed ancestry, also called "moggies"), despite the European Shorthair being a recognized breed. This is justified by "[[ScienceMarchesOn Cat Breeding Marches On]]" as in the late 80s early 90s, when the firs books were published, this usage was fairly common, and then the later books [[TheArtifact just rolled with it]]. Breed appearances can be hinted in the film adaption, but the art style makes some of them rather ambiguous.
