BLASTERMIND Feline Lucky?

The Friday Quiz – 15 sci-fi and fantasy cats to identify

(opens in new tab)

A couple of weeks ago we had a canine-based Blastermind. And so with the kind of awesome predictability of Fox axing an sci-fi show, here as a follow-up/sequel/remake/reimagining/whatever it is Tim Burton does is the inevitable feline-based version.

The rules are slighlty different this time, as we’re asking for different bits of information with each cat. For some we want the name of the kitty; for some we want the show or film they’re from; for some we want their owners. We’ll let you know each time.

As usual, please don’t put answers in the comments section below (though feel free to use it to boast/bemoan how well/badly you’re doing) but this thread (opens in new tab) is quite happy for you to post answers in “white-out” text, and discuss which ones are stumping you.

Answers on Monday. Try not to claw the curtains.
