Most popular and loved cartoon cats

Cartoon cats are another proof of how much we love cats. These are animated representations of felines that display their characteristics in a rather humorous way. We all grew up watching the delightful cartoons involving cats.

As a consequence of having a cat in a cartoon, there was usually a mouse or a Tweety bird. They are typically displayed as antagonists to mock at. Let´s take a look at some of these fictional cats.
