Some Twitter users used words like "weird" "disturbing" and "horrifying" to describe the cat makeovers.
The #cats trailer is the most disturbing thing I've ever seen.

Follow up thought: I think if their faces were much more cat-like/anthro, the weird worm fur bodies would probably not be as jarring. Just make them cats, go broadway or go steps closer to furry LOL not this weird what we do in the shadows in between

The fact that Cats is basically a more realistic Avatar is horrifying but I literally CANNOT WAIT
