Continuity mistake: As Buddy walks out into the street at the start of the movie when the cat is playing dead, you can see several parked cars on the street behind him. When the van backs up to 'catnap' buddy, there are no parked cars. Then as the van drives off again, there is a different bunch of parked cars in the street.

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.

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the movie, as the 4x4 draws up outside the house, a woman (Carolyn) jogs past. However, in the next shot, the same woman has now moved back along the road, and jogs past the 4x4 again.

Continuity mistake: When the kid is home after the soccer tryouts and he does not get in he kicks his soccer ball and misses the goal. Seconds later he kicks another ball, despite not having one there.

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.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lou has just met the other dogs and they are talking, after the jogger has passed, there is a shot from the ground where the dogs' heads are close together. It then cuts to a shot from above where the dogs aren't close at all.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When the video of Mr. Tinkles threatening to 'put the Brody family to sleep' is seen in the background at HQ, it is noticeably different to when the dogs saw it first time. This is easier to verify when Mr. Tinkles says, 'they will be put to sleep.'

Continuity mistake: When Lou walks knocks the door into the burning room where the kid and his parents are, you can see that Lou has a circled chain. However, in the next few shots it appears as a bone shaped chain and then it changes back to the circled chain.

Deliberate mistake: When the Russian cat sets the bomb on the big metal door, it is set for one minute. Yet this one minute seems to take three minutes to count down. I know it would be boring if it really was one minute, but why didn't they just make it so the cat set it to three minutes?

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.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Buddy the Bloodhound is chasing the ginger cat through the womens' house at the beginning, you see a shot of the cat from Buddy's point of view which shows the cat sitting down. Yet in the next shot that zooms in on the cat, it is standing up.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the flocking factory when Jeff Goldblum's character is being confronted by the cat leader (Mr. Tinkles) another cat (Calico) is on Goldblum's shoulder. When the shot changes to an angle behind Goldblum, Calico disappears only to immediately reappear when the shot changes back to the angle facing Goldblum.

Add time

Continuity mistake: The lawn goes from established grass to freshly laid sod back to established grass. In the daylight scenes you can tell that the grass is growing, probably 4 inches tall, not mowed recently. During one of the night scenes about half way through the movie, you can see that the grass is kind of sickly looking and you can also see the lines around the strips of sod. The next day while the kid is doing his soccer stuff, the grass is back to green and uncut.

Other mistake: When Mr Tinkles & Co are in the car outside the flocking factory, you see them speeding around the corners wildly, but if you look on the floor there are already treadmarks from previous takes.

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: When Lou looks up at the bone floating down, you can see the camera crew including the mic boom reflected in his eyes.

Sol Parker

Continuity mistake: In the Mason Flocking factory, just after Butch says "I've got to find Lou," the camera shows the window of the office, and the blinds covering the window can be seen hanging at a steep angle. In the shot before Lou pulls on the rope, you can see Scotty's head, and behind it, the blinds are straight.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: When Buddy is chasing the cat through the house at the beginning of the movie, there is a shot where the cat is sitting down at the end of a corridor. The shot changes and gets in closer to the cat, which is now standing up.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the same scene as above, the kid's dad comes out of his lab with a bunch of wires all over him, and a mask on. When a camera shows an outside view and you can see the parents' shadows on the curtain, you can see his dad has no wires on him, and no mask.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When the mother (Mrs. Brody) brings home Lou, and her back is to her son, the juice bag is on his right side (the left side of the table - looking at it). When she turns around to show him the puppy, the juice bag is on the far end of the table.
