Cat Feud is a 1958 Merrie Melodies animated short film directed by Chuck Jones. It is the fifth to star Marc Anthony and Pussyfoot. In this short, Marc Anthony is grey, whereas in previous shorts he was brown.
Marc Anthony is guarding a construction site when he catches a bag and begins barking at it. Coming out of the bag, it reveals Pussyfoot and he barks at her. However, she isn't afraid, believing the dog is her friend and Marc Anthony's emotions softens. Before returning to guard duty, he leaves Pussyfoot a sausage for her to snack on and she gratefully kisses him. However, trouble is ahead thanks to a hungry alley cat who has seen the sausage and wants it for himself.
However, Marc Anthony catches on and beats up the cat. Then it becomes a cat and mouse game between the two as Marc Anthony does all he can to protect Pussyfoot and the sausage he gave her from the cat. The final confrontation ends with the cat stuck below on a magnet in a trash can, while Marc Anthony endures a brief pain as Pussyfoot makes herself comfortable before falling asleep. Relieved, Marc Anthony falls asleep.
