Hopefully the first week back from spring break treated you well! One thing that always treats me well? Cats. Let’s talk about them!
Also, we’re officially in the top 10 now! Woo!
Duchess is SO pretty, okay? If I were a cat (something I often wish), I would want to look like Duchess. She’s also a really good mother to Toulouse, Marie, and Berlioz, a rarity for Disney movies. (A discussion about the lack of mothers in Disney is a completely different topic for a completely different blog post...I digress.) “Duchess” is a fitting name for this cat, because she is definitely royalty.
Okay, Mufasa is one of the ultimate Disney dads. He’s awesome, and as I’m sure we all know, he deserved better. As I mentioned way back in my first Caturday post, I still can’t even watch the scene. I don’t even have to elaborate--everyone knows what scene I’m talking about. Aside from being an ultimate Disney dad, he’s also one of the most inspiring characters in cinematic history.
I love Nala!!! She was one of my favorite characters as a kid, and I still think she’s great. I know Simba was the one who fought Scar at the end and technically saved the pride but...like...Nala was the one who convinced him to come back, so who’s the real hero here? Nala deserves infinite respect.
Thanks for joining me! When we return next week, we’ll get into the top 5! Yay!
