Cats & Dogs

Factual error: The "Russian Blue" isn't a Russian Blue at all. Russian Blues have pointed faces and green eyes. The flat faced, orange eyed kitten is a British Shorthair AKA British Blue. (00:39:35)

Factual error: When the Russian Blue is in Luke's house, there is a shot where Butch is tangled up in the telephone wire but it should actually be mirrored since it was the reflection in the cat's eyes.

Continuity mistake: It is clear throughout the movie that the dog that plays the character "Lou" changes from a male to a female. You can tell in different scenes when Lou is standing up, it's a male dog, and when Lou is laying on his back, belly facing up, it is a female dog.

Lou: I've never met a stray.
Ivy: Actually, I prefer "domestically challenged."

Question: In one scene where Lou is talking to Ivy about Butch she says that someone really hurt him once. What did she mean by that? Did Butch have an owner who was mean to him or abandoned him?

Answer: Butch was abandoned. It's never stated but it's implied.

"Okay, well, here's lesson number two: we help them. We work for them. We tolerate that stupid boochy-boochy baby talk. And for WHAT? So that when they go off to college, they can dump you off with some old lady who can't throw a ball without so much as breaking her HIP!" Pretty sure this counts as being abandoned.

As I said, it's never stated outright but it is implied.
