Madonna is singing to the slave workers below, in particular one worker (Cameron Alborzian).  The cat finds this worker, who holds the animal in the rain.

Eventually the worker makes his way to an elevator which takes him to the top of the tall tower where Madonna has been chained and was seen drinking milk from a bowl like a cat.

The worker drops the cat and he and Madonna get it on.  The cat we don’t see again.  Maybe it got some of the milk from the saucer?  Oh no wait, that’s right, Madonna poured it over her shoulder.  Sorry kitty!

Final Mewsings: This cat actor appreciated the fact that Madonna did not wear her cone bra for this video.
