Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains some spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: A group of old-fashioned, worn out mannequins make their home in a warehouse and follow a daily routine until a group of more modern discarded mannequins show up.
Kitty Cameo: At one point the mannequins are interrupted by the sound of the door opening. They scurry to the other side of the room, nervously awaiting the intruder to appear. But instead of a person it is a stray cat.
The female mannequin throws a wooden spoon at the poor cat, scaring it away.
Later when the older mannequins are fighting with the newer mannequins the cat again pokes its head inside the door.
A flying mannequin arm once again scares the cat away. In both of these instances the cat may have actually been hit by the flying objects but was hopefully not injured.
The cat climbs onto the edge of an open skylight in the roof as the camera pans away.
Final Mewsings: Curiosity really does almost kill the cat!
