Catwalk: Tales from the Cat Show Circuit (2018)

There can only be one Best Cat in Canada. It’s either going to be Oh La La the Red Persian or Bobby the Turkish Angora. As Kim, Bobby’s owner says, “If you’re not number one, you’re the first loser.” Get ready for the battle of the century, which will be fought in curling facilities and high school gyms. Other cats will get close, but at the end of the day, the real fur is about to fly between these two.

Kim Langille’s cats have won nearly everything there is to win. He’s in first place right now, but then Bob and Elaine Gleason’s cat Mr. Oh La La comes out of retirement to re-enter the world of the Canadian Cat Association.

Soon, the greatest cat judge in the history of cat judges will decide who will reign supreme. Along the way, we meet the owners, their many cats and learn what it takes to get someone to spend the money to fly all over Canada to do something like this.

I loved this movie. It’s 75 minutes of pure fun. It could totally make fun of its subjects and while it makes light, it is never mean. Seriously, the scene where the judge almost loses his mind judging Mr. Oh La La might be one of the best moments I’ll see in any movie this year.

This is streaming on Netflix right now. Watch it with a cat you love.
