Top TV Cats: Sabrina's Salem, Witches' Wendy and More Beloved Purrformers

National Cat Day

Happy National Cat Day! Wait, you didn’t know that was a thing? Well it is, and TVLine is celebrating this meowst holy of holidays by sharing 10 of our favorite televised tabbies.

RELATED Fall TV’s Best Makeovers: Trim Tony, Edgy Thea, a Modern Hook and Others

Our picks range from contemporary cats like Witches of East End‘s Wendy Beauchamp to classic kitties like Garfield and Snagglepuss (who isn’t gay and how dare you for even thinking it.)

So go ahead and purrruse our selection of small-screen scratchers, then drop a comment with some of your favorites. Any key kitties we missed?

(FYI, honorable mentions include the bookshop cat from You’re the Worst, Tom of Tom and Jerry fame, Looney Tunes‘ Sylvester and — of course — the oft-referenced-but-never-seen Smelly Cat from Friends.)

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    You missed Sylvester of Sylvester and Tweety and the cat from Disney’s That Darn Cat, which has had many tv replays. Not to mention Tom of Tom and Jerry.

  2. Amie says:

    Snagglepuss made it, but no Top Cat? Whaaa?

  3. Christina says:

    I vote Heathcliff, and his band of fellow cat misfits.

  4. Tran says:

    Cee Lo’s cat was the best I’ve ever seen on The Voice.

  5. What about the cat from Charmed? I think her name was Kit.

  6. Therese says:

    I like Team Winston and Furguson in New Girl.

  7. Pedro says:

    Brittany’s cat from Glee (can’t remember his name) made for some hilarious scenes (remember Fondue for Two?)

  8. Steven says:

    What about Willow and Tara’s cat from Buffy which had the best name ever? Miss Kitty Fantastico!

  9. Ron says:

    I’m rather baffled by the omission of Tom from Tom and Jerry. And really, one of the greatest TV cats ever is missing from this list: Top Cat. But I do love me some Salem Saberhagen.

  10. Mary says:

    Data’s cat, Spot, from Star Trek the Next Generation.

  11. JC says:

    Kit/Katrina!!! The Halliwell’s familiar!!!

  12. Tori says:

    What, no Morris the cat? And no Top Cat?

  13. Pat says:

    Early edition’s cat?

  14. Wenders says:

    The Pink Panther!!!

  15. Piers says:

    You missed Dickens the gorgeous Siamese on Tucker’s Witch with Catherine Hicks and Tim Matheson.

  16. Kim R says:

    The Pink Panther and Sylvester….glaring omissions. :D
