Things are not all purr-fect at the Broadway production of Breakfast at Tiffany's, which opened Wednesday night in New York City.
Only hours before the show's evening bow, it was announced that Montie, a black-and-white male that served as the play's main understudy, was fired after failing to obey instructions.
But "while there are others who are joining the production as understudies and covers, Montie will remain at the theater indefinitely," publicist Rick Miramontez said in a statement, a nod to Montie's owner, Babette Corelli, who is in charge of training cats for the show.

Add Eva Longoria to the list of Hollywood's cat ladies.
While the former Desperate Housewives star is too busy to parent one right now, she tells PEOPLE, "I always found that I identified with them. Cats are feminine and independent and playful, much like a woman."
Her affinity for felines is why she's partnered with Sheba cat food to kick off the Feed Your Passion campaign, in which cat lovers are encouraged to visit the brand's website and share a photo of themselves and their pet, or a video of their greatest passion.

Paging Destiny's Child! Natasha, a Siberian Forest cat from Oakland, Calif., is a survivor alright.
The sixth-month-old feline spent 35 minutes trapped inside a washing machine cycle but managed to make it out alive.
Having emerged with a severe case of hypothermia, Natasha was brought to an animal hospital by her owner, Daryl Humdy. Her reason for admission led her to receive the "Most Unusual Claim Award" by the company Veterinary Pet Insurance.

The duo, residents at an Israeli petting zoo, are rarely apart from one another, andthe baboon has even taken to checking the kitten for fleas.

For anyone keeping up with Kim Kardashian, it's pretty clear she's had only one thing on her mind lately – kitten Mercy.
"I just hope I'm not turning into one of those cat ladies that's Tweeting too many pictures of her pet!" she tells PEOPLE at a Midori event in Santa Monica, Calif., on Tuesday.
While Kardashian certainly has taken to Twitter often to share photos of her Persian, including one with nephew Mason Disick, her love for the cat has been a long time in the making.

Matthew Perry is back on primetime TV – and he's getting a little help from some feline friends.
The actor stars as a sportscaster grieving the death of his wife on the new NBC series Go On, and in Tuesday's episode, the process involves dealing with a handful of cuddly cats.
Though judging by the actor's expression, he's none to keen about having such a large group at home with him – perhaps what leads him to seemingly give them away later on.
