Cat Out of the Bag Alert!  This review contains some spoilers for this film!

Synopsis: Pet detective Ace Ventura (Jim Carrey) searches for a dolphin named Snowflake who is the mascot of the Miami Dolphins.

Kitty Cameos: When Ace walks into his apartment after assuring his landlord there are no animals inside, he calls out and a menagerie of animals come running out to surround him. Among them are at least three cats.

Later in the film when Ace and Melissa (Courtney Cox) are in his apartment making out, the animals are sitting around them, watching. Four cats are among these animals and there is a closer shot of two of them.

The gray and white cat could easily be Pearl who also appeared in Assassins and The Truman Show.

Final Mewsings: No menagerie is complete without some cats!
