The oddest thing about the choice of orange tabbies to portray Thomasina (renamed from Thomas when she was discovered to be female) is that 80% of orange tabby cats are male -- just as calicos are 99.8% female.

A movie with everything from first class acting to a storyline where fantasy meets reality.In this case the Cat...who is also a voiceover...is really the central part of the story. Patrick McGoohan plays the vet,whose daughter Mary (played by Karen Dotrice)is owned by the Cat. Its definitely a weepie but everyone lives happily ever after as Thomasina returns from an unusual resurrection performed by Susan Hampshire...supposedly a witch!!!
