Tomcat (German: Kater) is a 2016 Austrian drama film directed by Klaus Händl. It was shown in the Panorama section at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival, where it won the Teddy Award as the best LGBT-related feature film of the festival.
The film stars Philipp Hochmair as Andreas and Lukas Turtur as Stefan, a well-off gay couple in Vienna whose relationship is tested when Stefan, in an uncharacteristic sudden outburst of violent anger, kills their pet cat Moses. The film's original German title is a pun on the identical German words for (a male) cat and hangover.
