Hello to all and TGIF
I'm assembling a good list of films that have "tiny tiny" roles
for animals--especially cats.  So, a film like _Cujo_ wouldn't
qualify. However, _The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly_, for instance,
would be a good example.  About 3/4 of the way through the movie,
Clint Eastwood is seen petting a kitten that he's holding in his
overturned hat.  The sequence lasts only for a minute, if that.  Then
he goes out and kills somebody.
In _The Godfather_, Marlon Brando does the same kind of thing.
I'm not limiting the list to "shoot-em-ups", even though these two
examples might be found in that category.  Any genre would do.
Foreign films can be included, too.
Any input from you would be appreciated.
