If you've already seen Captain Marvel, you know that the real star of the movie is the cat.
"Goose," the orange tabby, stole the show for millions of fans. The only thing better than superheroes? Their pets.
Of course, like most things in Captain Marvel, Goose is more than meets the eye:

Goose is an alien creature called a Flerken (a race of aliens that resemble cats) who went with Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) after her owner, Mar-Vell (Dr. Wendy Larson) was killed.
So appropriately, Goose got her own poster:
LOOK AT DAT FACE.
And then, naturally, everybody wanted to see their own cats in an epic movie poster.

Confused, because, why are there exactly zero superhero movies starring cats?

Better yet, we want to see our own cats on the big screen!
One of those cats is definitely a Kree and the other is a Skrull.
We will let you decide which.
Not to be dramatic or anything but we would literally take a bullet for Peanut.
Isn't this the greatest hashtag you've ever seen?
Forget the Year of the Pig. 2019 is obviously the year of the cat!
Go forth and make yer cat memes!
