the whisperers (1967)

Lots of opportunities to see stray cats in this film about a old woman and her mundane life. This black stray cat makes a fleeting appearance in a street scene early in this drama.

Another stray appears eating from a bin before making itself scarce.

The old woman is found collapsed in the street, with a kitten playing around her body to keep her company.

Tortoiseshell scavenging the bins when its interrupted by the woman who asks, 'Would you like a saucer of milk?' But the cat naturally ignores her.
