Isn't Pussyfoot male? If the flying kitty in "Go Fly a Kit" is indeed Pussyfoot, then he's most definitely male... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 05:24, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
Yes he is male. It's a common mistake, most probably due to his name. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:27, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
Do we have any sort of reference material (interviews, history books, etc.) that firmly establishes this? So far, I've been unable to find anything that says either way what the cat's gender is. — KieferSkunk (talk) — 21:18, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
Looking online, the first sites I came across that seemed to have anything to say on this (and which weren't obviously quoting Wikipedia) were sites selling reproductions of the model sheet for these two characters (example). The descriptions on each of these sites, which presumably are based on information provided by the character designers and original artists (and which provide complete copyright info to WB), all seem to agree that Pussyfoot is female. While I know Warner Bros. cartoons tended to use femininity to emphasize cuteness regardless of a character's gender, Pussyfoot's characteristics are very strongly female in "Feed the Kitty" (where she was first introduced). I think there's enough agreement on this, though I'd prefer corroboration from an interview with a WB producer or artist. — KieferSkunk (talk) — 21:26, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
Did a bit more research, and it appears there was never any official agreement on the cat's gender. Pussyfoot doesn't seem demonstrably female in "Feed the Kitty", and the dog's owner refers to the kitten as male at the end of the film (though this is likely the traditional gender-neutral usage). I also can't find any sources direct from Warner Bros that definitely state the gender either way, so for now I've removed all gender references that I'm aware of. (In this article, just dodge the issue. In Feed the Kitty, use "the kitten" and "it" to help distinguish Pussyfoot from Marc Anthony and his owner.) — KieferSkunk (talk) — 19:22, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
The dog's name is Marc Anthony, not Antony. That's the reason it's spelled that way on his food dish in Feed The Kitty, and also every other occurrence where his name is in print. Can this page be moved? --Smart Mark Greene (talk) 00:48, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
