* AudienceAlienatingPremise: ''Felidae'' is a film noir with blood, gore, murder, sex, and a cult. Starring cats. Its look made many people think it was a Disney-type movie, but the actual content is not kid-friendly, scaring away both kid and adult audiences. The film has since gained a cult status online, however.

* OlderThanTheyThink: A series about completely non-anthropomorphic cats that is exceedingly dark and violent? It's not a new thing at all. XenofictionalLiterature thrives on NatureIsNotNice and thus violence is commonplace. A good example is ''Literature/WarriorCats''. It came out after ''Felidae'' but features ''a lot'' of FamilyUnfriendlyViolence. It's [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids even aimed at kids]]. The only unusual thing about ''Felidae'' is that it's been adapted into a movie. Most xenofiction works stay books, and books can be more violent than films (this is a large reason why works like ''Warrior Cats'' and ''Literature/TailchasersSong'' have [[TrappedInDevelopmentHell a hard time being adapted]]--they're too dark for mainstream film popularity).

* AdaptationDisplacement: Yes, ''Felidae'' was based on a book.
** Also, there are actually seven books (the first one being the one made into a film). However, only the first two (and more recently, the fifth) have been translated into English.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Claudandus.
** Even if he acknowledges during his FinalSpeech that he is evil, there is no clear indication whether he [[HeelRealization regrets being evil]] or [[IDidWhatIHadToDo or not]]; in fact, the only thing that is clearly stated is that he's a KnightTemplar.

* HoYay: More evident in the books, but the friendship between [[MayDecemberRomance Francis and Pascal]] might come off as this to some.
** Kong and Francis can give off this vibe, at least in the English movie dub. Kong even calls Francis "cutie pie."
*** He also disparages Francis and implies he's Bluebeard's gay lover.
** This is probably perfectly intentional. Cats ''aren't'' picky in mating season and homosexual behavior among them a is pretty well documented phenomenon.

to:

* HoYay: FriendlyFandoms: ''WesternAnimation/{{Felidae}}'', ''WesternAnimation/ThePlagueDogs'', and ''WesternAnimation/WatershipDown'' are commonly grouped together due to being violent films about domestic animals.

* {{Shipping}}: The most popular pairing in the fandom seems to be Francis/Felicity even though [[spoiler:Felicity is decapitated only minutes after she is introduced in the film]] and [[spoiler:Francis's mate ends up being Nhozemptekh AKA "The cat who had sex with him in the movie."]]
** That's because of [[TheWoobie what]] [[IllGirl Felicity]] [[WideEyedIdealist is]]. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, she's also a SacrificialLamb who is TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth.]]
** Funny enough, Nhozemptekh is not even ''mentioned'' in the second book.
*** She ''is'' mentioned, albeit extremely briefly, towards the very end of the book. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Francis comments on [[spoiler: all the sex he's had with her.]] Francis's ship for the second book is Alcina, a wildcat. [[spoiler:She is murdered partway through the book, leaving Francis rather devastated.]]
*** Francis apparently has a fetish for undomesticated females...
*** Well, they are the ones that are most easily available, and least likely to be spayed.

* PopularWithFurries: The film tends to creep out non-furries and non-{{xenofiction}} fans as they're not used to cute cats being so violent. Furries and fans of other cat works, like ''Literature/WarriorCats'', however aren't phased as easily. ''Felidae'' is thus a pretty popular cat animated film.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Yeah, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick it's an animated movie about kitties... and gruesome murder! And surrealistic, disturbing nightmares!]]
** Cats fucking like rabbits. Or rather, like cats, which is to say, [[TheImmodestOrgasm loudly and violently]].
** There's a cult that holds ''suicide pacts''. [[DeadpanSnarker Francis]] even {{lampshades}} this- "What I was watching wasn't exactly a scene out of Disney/TheAristocats."
* TheWoobie: Felicity.

* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler:If Claudandus hadn't cross the line with Felicity's murder, then he did so with Solitaire, who was pregnant at the time. It all becomes moot as shortly after, we find out that the murders have been going on for years and many victims were young or pregnant, thus crossing the line much earlier than we had expected.]]

* SignatureScene: ''WesternAnimation/{{Felidae}}'' is largely known only for the very explicit and realistic sex scene between two [[SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism minimally anthropomorphic]] ''cartoon cats.'' To a lesser extent, it's known for it's most gory scenes, such as the one with the disemboweled pregnant cat.
