After making Inside Llewyn Davis, Joel Coen concluded, “cats are a pain in the ass. They’re just an unvarnished pain in the ass, that’s all there is.”

Fortunately, the hard work of the Coens (and their crew) and many other filmmakers has left us with a bevy of memorable cinematic felines, nicely compiled by Klara Tavakoli Goesche in this 6½ minute video, cleverly scored to Al Stewart’s “Year of the Cat.” Over on YouTube, you can see a full list of the many cats included.
