Celebrity Cats - A Trivia Quiz

Cats are very popular pets. My family and I have several, and we spoil them terribly. And it seems you can’t even go to Facebook or your favorite forums without someone posting photos of their own treasured felines. Despite their reputation for independence and finicky ways, cats are great companions - often hailed as superior to dogs (usually by their prejudiced owners, of course!)

The following trivia quiz is all about famous and celebrity felines, from real cats to our favorite fictional ones. If you’d like to play along, the rules are simple: get out a sheet of paper and pencil or pen. Number your paper 1-16. Scroll down to the Questions section and read the first trivia question, and from the choice of four answer choices, select one. Mark this on your paper and proceed to the next question. Below the Questions section is the Answers section, where you’ll check to see how many correct answers you got. Each correct answer 1-15 is worth 10 points, while question #16 (bonus question) is worth 50 points, making for a potential perfect score of 200 points.

Good luck and have fun!

These quizzes are fun Beth. I had to make quite a few guesses because I had no idea of some, but I thought having four cats of my own may have been some advantage. I managed to get 160 points (aided by guessing number 16 correctly...lol). Keep these quiz hubs coming.

Hey this was fun, Beth. Had to give up though around no. 10 as I only had a couple right for sure. Did a bit better after #10! Grew up around dogs but got turned on to cats later - love 'em both, of course! Most of the time that is lol..

I was guessing most and I got 10 of the 15 correct. Bonus was wrong. I am not a fan of cats or dogs.

The Examiner-1, that's not a bad score at all. And I know you're a bird lover, so that's cool :)

By the way, we just got a new finch, a handsome Indian Spice. He's so sweet!

That is not a US finch. Its range is India, Asia, Oceania in general. It was most likely a pet bird which was released.

Oh, I know. The pet shop got it from India.

Loved the quiz beth, I got most of them right, but some were too American for me to know! lol! my favorite has to be grumpy cat, the girl who put a photo of him on the internet just did it as a joke as its her cat, and its gone viral! I think he is even going to star in a film now, so meouw! lol!

Thanks Nell! Maybe I should remember not to over-Americanize my next quiz.

Yeah, ole Grumpy sure has become famous for her angry look. But I read somewhere that her owner says she's far from a real grump. I'd love to see a Grumpy Cat movie!
