Welcome to the Aristocats Appreciation Thread!
In Paris, France, in 1910, a mother cat named Duchess and her three kittens, Marie, Berlioz, and Toulouse, live in the mansion of retired opera singer Madame Adelaide Bonfamille, along with her English butler Edgar.
She settles her will early on with her lawyer Georges Hautecourt, an aged, eccentric old friend of hers, stating that she wishes for her fortune to be left to her cats, who will retain it until their deaths, upon which her fortune will revert to Edgar.
Edgar hears this from his own room through a speaking tube and is unwilling to wait for the cats to die naturally before he inherits Madame Adelaide’s fortune, and plots to remove the cats from the position of inheritance.

“Why, your eyes are like sapphires sparkling so bright. They make the morning radiant and light!”
“We were just practicing biting and clawing.”
“Oh, darling. That’s only a little frog, my love.”
“But he had a mouth like a hippolotamus.”
