Mews and Nips: The Cat in Pet Sematary is Played by Five Shelter Cats


I will most definitely not be going to see the remake of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. I’m not a fan of horror movies, and this one looks particularly scary (even Stephen King once mentioned that of all the books he wrote, the only one that really scared him was this one!)  However, I loved hearing that Church the cat was played by five different shelter cats, and that the cats were trained using a holistic approach with positive reinforcement. “I don’t want them in cages,” animal trainer Melissa Millett told Inverse. “I want them to live like cats that happen to have a job.” Read the full story and see some great photos, on

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we told you how the Assisi Loop helped a cat affected by the California wildfires, on Tuesday, we reviewed the DuraScoop® Mini Steel Litter Scoop, on Wednesday, Dr. Marci answered behavior questions, and on Friday, we reviewed Toy Stories, the latest installment in Gwen Cooper’s Curl Up with a Cat Tale series. And don’t forget to enter this week’s giveaway to win a Jackson Galaxy Space Station from Petmate!

I was never a huge fan of Tupperware parties, but I totally would have gone to this one! Enjoy.

Have a great weekend!

    Oh my gosh! My son went to see this movie pronouncing it “Good!” He thought it was so funny that I was not interested in seeing it. Nope. No can do.

    I don’t like horror movies either, but it’s interesting to learn about the cat in the movie. I love the Tupperware pawty. .

    Dad loved the original Pet Sematary, and didn’t know there was a remake. That Tupperware Party photo is absolutely priceless!
