10 films like Inside the Mind of a Cat you must watch
Cat People (2021)
This Netflix documentary takes the stigma of “cat people” and embraces the feline obsession people have with their furry friends and their need to collect many of them. Per Ready Steady Cut film critic Romey Norton, “… a cat that surfs, one that plays the drums, and an owner who throws elaborate birthday parties for her pet—people and cats living their best lives.” Now that we have seen Inside the Mind of Cats, how can we not analyze what these cats think?
Pick of the Litter (2019)
A beautiful and thoughtful documentary that follows four puppies and their grueling two-year training to become guide dogs. Yes, this is not about cats, but it’s an overdose of heart-swelling cuteness and gives you some insight into how canine minds work in the quest to be our little furry heroes.
Pet Stars (2021)
Ready Steady Cut said Pet Stars “will surely have you smiling on both corners.” He’s not lying, and with what Inside the Mind of a Cat taught us, you will get insight into a cat by viewing its owner’s behavior.
Cat Ladies (2009)
This 2009 documentary has the best tagline: “When cats mean meow to you more than people.” Weaving the lives together of four women and their obsessiveness with their cats leading their best lives. Gentle, touching, and even eye-opening, there may be no documentary on the “crazy” cat lady’s obsession. This is another example of cat lovers needing to go above and beyond in understanding their feline friends.
The Cat Rescuers (2018)
A “felinomenal” documentary film about controlling the cat population in New York City and animal welfare activists attempt to fix the issue with adoption pushes and techniques that have to do with feline behaviors.
Ready Steady Cut said of Dogs, “If you love dogs, watch it. If you don’t love dogs, watch it.” And we’re right. This entertainment lets us know what is going inside the minds of dog owners and the pets themselves.
Grizzly Man (2005)
Legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog put together archival footage of the self-proclaimed Grizzly Man, Timothy Treadwell. A man with no expertise, but frequently visited classrooms to tutor kids about grizzly bears, he sought to communicate and understand the majestic beasts in his way. Unfortunately, one of them ended up killing him and his female companion.
A beloved Turkish documentary that follows house and street cats around Istanbul connects how the cats reflect the people there. The documentary narration even says the “cat embodies the indescribable chaos, the culture, and the uniqueness that is the essence of Istanbul.”
Kitty Love: An Homage to Cats (2020)
I called Kitty Love: An Homage to Cats “a behavioral exercise on film critic’s obedience.” It’s mind-numbing as it fictionalizes a storyline of what is going through the mind of a Dutch cat going through a casting call. However, it has some cute cats, so dive in if that’s your thing.
The Secret Life of Cats (2014)
A documentary that follows a newborn kitten as it grows into its cat-like reflexes. Like Inside the Mind of Cats, this documentary attempts to explain a feline’s behaviors, liking purring, landing on all fours, and actions that lead them away from the cat nest.
