CAT OF THE DAY 056: CAT PEOPLE (1942)

Pet-shop owner: “You can’t fool a cat. They seem to know who’s not right, if you know what I mean.”

From Cat People (BFI film Classics, 1999) by Kim Newman:

The protagonists of WereWolf of London and The Wolfman are also shunned by otherwise friendly dogs and cats, and the animal who is sensitive to supernatural dangers unperceived by its master is a cliché of ghost stories. Variations on the scene recur in a great many horror movies, most extravagantly  as the monkeys at a wild-life park erupt into a frenzy of chittering at the presence of the Anti-Christ in The Omen (1976).
