Cat Feud is a 1958 Warner Bros. Merrie Melodies animated short film directed by Chuck Jones featuring Marc Antony and Pussyfoot[1] It was released on December 20, 1958.[2]

Plot

Marc Anthony, guarding a construction site, encounters Pussyfoot, a small kitten. Initially wary, Marc Anthony softens when he sees Pussyfoot's fearlessness. He offers her a sausage, but they're interrupted by an alley cat wanting the snack. Marc Anthony fights to protect Pussyfoot and the sausage. In the end, the cat is defeated, and Marc Anthony sings to Pussyfoot as they both fall asleep, relieved and content.

Censorship

The original cartoon depicted a car throwing the bag into a trash can at the construction site, explaining how Pussyfoot ended up in both the bag and the trash can. However, this scene has been removed from all versions of the cartoon since the late 1980s.
