 Jim Hutton, Paula Prentiss
Directed by: Richard Thorpe

Synopsis: Second Lieutenant Merle Wye (Jim Hutton) is stationed on a remote island near the end of World War II where he finds himself distracted by the beautiful Lt. Molly Blue (Paula Prentiss) while he attempts to track down a Japanese soldier who has been stealing supplies.

Kitty Cameo: In one scene Merle gets chewed out by his superior. Merle then turns to Sergeant Jess Yomura (Lloyd Kino) and yells at him for nothing. Sgt. Yomura then turns on a private who is sweeping nearby and yells at him. The private angrily yells at a dog that is sitting nearby, causing him to go away. As the dog grumpily growls it turns a corner and then sees a calico cat on a metal drum. The dog then barks at the cat, who starts to fight back as the scene ends.

Hoppity Hare (1964)

British Pathé

Synopsis: Newsreel footage shows a domesticated hare named Hoppity living in a residence in West Mersea, Essex.

Reality Cat: The hare lives with Mrs. Joan Bullin and her tabby cat Bustamante (at least we think that’s what they’re saying) Bullin (or Buster for short). Buster seems to be taking the whole thing in stride, even eating alongside Hoppity. Unfortunately the newsreel footage cuts off suddenly.

Final Mewsings: Buster probably wonders why he wasn’t raised on toast and marmalade!
