Hollywood's finest and most familiar faces – from Jessica Chastain to Jessica Biel – have flocked to the South of France for the Cannes Film Festival. (Did we mention Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio and Emma Watson, too?)
But the true stars of the festival have yet to show up.
Meet the ginger-colored cats who steal scenes from Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake in the Coen brothers' latest film, Inside Llewyn Davis. (Fun fact: It took six felines to fill the role of the cat who follows Isaac around 1961 New York in the film.)

Now, there's a lesson in purr-severance.
Brigitta, a cat who lost use of her hind legs after being shot with an air rifle, has a new lease on life thanks to the help of a wheelchair specially crafted for her. The once-injured kitty was brought to Celle, Germany, from her home in Bulgaria to be fitted with the piece.
And Brigitta's accessory is proving to be as fashionable as it is practical: Just check out that pretty prink paint job! Plus, the rear wheels give her the freedom to explore her grassy green habitat just as well as any other adventurous feline.

Is it time for my ap-paws?
While most celebrities walk the red carpet, Internet sensation Lil Bub took a decidedly simpler approach: taking a seat.
The famous feline was on hand for Thursday's Tribeca Film Festival premiere of the documentary Lil Bub & Friendz, which chronicles the popularity of its titular star and fellow Internet obsessions like Grumpy Cat and Keyboard Cat.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Meet Humphrey, a 4-year-old domestic short-haired tuxedo cat hoping to warm up to you.
Since coming to the Fort Worth Animal Care & Control of Texas from another shelter, he's been "waiting for his forever home for a while," Sherri Eason, manager of the PetSmart Charities's everyday adoption center in Fort Worth, tells PEOPLE. "He is a very sweet, loving cat who just needs some time to get to know you."
Although the feline is shy at first, that will change. He really "starts to warm up once he's in someone's lap," adds Eason. "He really just needs time to acclimate to a nice, quiet home and have the chance to be someone's forever friend."

Ian Somerhalder's latest relationship might not have a happy ending.
"Me and my new love," The Vampire Diaries star, 34, Tweeted alongside a photo of the one and only, and presumably lonely, Grumpy Cat.
As to be expected, however, meeting the hunky animal-loving actor over the weekend during a Mashable interview at Austin's South by Southwest festival was not enough to swipe the disdain off Grumpy Cat's face.

Best known for her role in 2010's The Last Exorcism, actress Ashley Bell, who returns in the movie's sequel The Last Exorcism: Part II, out March 1, is a passionate animal lover who spends her free time fostering animals in need. Right now, her L.A. home is a temporary haven for close to a dozen rescues – and, thankfully, her permanent pal, cat Harrison, doesn't seem to mind the extra roommates.
In her first PEOPLE.com blog, she reflects on how the lovable kitty came into her life, and the work she's done with the Delta Rescue of Acton, Calif.
You can find her on Twitter @OfficialAshBell.
Don't worry. Despite the fact that you saw me smash a cat with a camera in my last film, The Last Exorcism, in real life, I'm an animal lover. Thanks to movie magic, that little guy is alive and well and signing autographs in New Orleans. And this week, my devil-possessed alter ego returns in The Last Exorcism: Part II.
Growing up in Santa Monica, I had eleven brothers and sisters, all spayed and neutered, possessed (he-he) with horrible breath and all of them rescues.

But there's someone who thinks the funny man did a perfect job – or should we say purr-fect?
"My cat said the show went well," the Family Guy creator, 39, playfully Tweeted.

Well hello, ol' blue eyes!
Daisy, a tiny tabby kitten, has taken over the Internet after her owner, photographer Ben Torode, began snapping photos of the paw-dorable furball at his Tokyo home.
Torode, a native Australian, took up photography in 2009 as a hobby, and added Daisy to his repertoire of subjects last year.

Some people have skeletons in their closets. Others have preserved cat remains in their attics.
That's just what Robert Gray found at the Cornwall, England, bed and breakfast he owns. After first discovering what appeared to be a stuffed cat in his attic, Gray thought it was a kooky antique of sorts. But an X-ray scan by a veterinarian revealed something even more bizarre: his finding was a 2,000-year-old Egyptian mummy.
