Featured Animal Action

There is a scene in which a cat is shown in a laboratory in an isolation tank. The cat wears a head shield with a number of cables and wires attached to its body. After a warning goes off, the cat is shown thrashing about inside the isolation tank. Immediately afterwards, the cat is lying in the tank, dead. A real and a fake cat were used. The real cat was used for the establishing shot. A real cat harness was used with little "electrodes" attached to the harness, not the cat. The tube was strapped to the cat under his chin by a plastic coated 1 inch wide wire strip. A fake syringe was used.

Other animal action consists of a man holding a cat in several scenes.
